Re: Brooklands Museum - March 2020

very nice Neil, I haven't been for 8 years when I did the Concorde simulator experience which was good fun. It looks to have changed a lot since so I must go back sometime soon.

love the Vanguard video!

Re: Heathrow 19/09/2020

nice set and far better light than I had on Wednesday :o .
Was it very busy? It seemed quiet on Wednesday - about 5 minutes between flights but I assume that's somewhere near the norm at present.

thanks for posting them, especially nice to see the 747

The BA B747s... Are these the aircraft that are off to join the Rossiya Airlines fleet. ?
That now seems to have been an unfounded rumour unfortunately. Of those that were quoted (all in the G-BYG* series) three are at Kemble and two are in that line up alongside the road.

Re: One day at the Lucca Aeroclub

beautiful set Claudio, I haven't been to Lucca for about 15 years and never to the airfield. Lucca is a wonderful town so I must go there again sometime.

Looks nice weather, I hope it holds as i'm finally flying out for a weekend in 3 weeks time, thanks for reminding me of how nice italy is.
