Hsinchu Airbase (Taiwan)

Hsinchu Airbase (Taiwan)

Postby henk99 on Sat 12 Apr 2014, 3:55 pm

Last week I was lucky enough to visit the Hsinchu area for work. I had one spare day while there, so I rented a scooter and set of to Hsinchu Airbase. It was a great day, with lot's of flying activity, great weather and nice people. Thanks go out to 'urkles' for his help with locations around the base and also to Han-Chia Ho, a local photographer that showed me some nice spots for photography :worship:
Hope you all like them.

How are the Taiwanese authorities concerning spotters/photographing?

Thanks JJC! When I was near the HAS area, after half an hour or so, two policemen came on scooters and kindly asked me to leave. I was on a scooter as well and the policemen followed me towards a more public area. They didn't ask me to delete anything, so I kept all my pictures from the HAS area too :yahoo:
Local photographers told me that the police has no rights to send people away, as they have no warning signs there. However, I didn't want any trouble with the Police, so I kindly obliged :surrender:

10 and 14 are crackers, and how patchy is that jet in no19 :shock:

Always had a soft spot for the deux-mille (or two ton as Mad Dan would say :whistle: ). Great shooting :clap:
