Asia `06 - Taiwan and Korea

5 May 2006 to 22 May 2006

During the 2005/2006 time-frame I was working in Taiwan quite a bit, so to avoid the boredom of shooing the same airplanes over and over again or to escape bad weather (and there was a lot of it!) I took trips within a few hours of Taiwan.

This trip included a short trip to Seoul Korea for the specific task of shooting a (then) new Asiana Airlines 737 in Star Alliance colors. I got it but not in the best weather.

This set is dedicated to all the friendly and very helpful spotters in Taiwan.
