About Me

In Paradise

As you might already know, my name is Keishi Nukina, and I love airliners and more generally, everything aviation related. Currently, I am living in Japan and most of my aviation activities happen, start or end in Japan, but my love for aviation started long before I moved here…

…it started when I was one or two years old. Being born in Slovakia in Europe and having grandparents in Japan meant flying there for a visit every year. Each and every year, I would look forward to that trip more and more. Of course I was looking forward to seeing my grandparents, but I was also looking forward to flying on an airplane!

As I got older, I would start researching the airlines and types of aircraft I would fly on, and that led me to many aviation websites including Airliners.net. For my 15th birthday, it was very clear what I wanted as a gift – a camera. Shortly after that, I took my first ever spotting trip, to Zurich, and the rest is history…

Over my ten year old aviation enthusiast “career” I went through a variety of aviation related hobbies – from taking registrations, through taking photos and videos and collecting memorabilia. Finally, I settled with taking photos and taking trips on interesting aircraft as the main part. I also collect safety cards, and to a certain degree also other aviation related memorabilia.

This hobby has not only allowed me to visit various airports all over the world, but also meet a lot of great people that I would not have met otherwise. Here, I would like to take the opportunity to thank all the people that have helped me with taking pictures, that have drove me around the airports, that have let me stay at their homes and that have spent time at airports and in aircraft with me. Without you, the hobby would not be nearly as much fun!

If you are interested in seeing the flights that I have taken over the last couple of years, whether out of curiosity or to serve as an inspiration for your next trip, please take a look here.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any questions or if you think there is any way I can help you in pursuing your aviation endeavours.

Once again, thank you very much for visiting my page and I hope you enjoy it!
