Dubrovnik's mad dog

Hi everyone,
Just to let you know that there won't be any updates until the end of the month as I'll be on holidays in Croatia. No, it's not a spotting trip, but there will be time between flights to snap some registrations. As a last post before how about this cool Croatian Mad Dog? Dubrovnik Airways operated charter flights between 2004 and 2011

This MD-83 was later sold to Khors Air and became UR-CJC.

Singapore Airlines A340-500

Singapore Airlines operated for about 11 years the -500 varient of the A340. The operation of the -500's by SQ will be forever associated with having the longest non-stop route operated in the world: SIN-EWR. SQ operated 5 of this long range A340,so it was a bit diffcult to spot them. Here're 2 photos taken on an afternoon in March at LAX:
