Re: Donegal Airport

super set Paul and what a background - even the last one is brilliant and there's no aircraft in sight - but I do believe that might be a military mountain so maybe you should post it on FC :lol:

It was still enjoyable and I spent far more time watching aircraft with the naked eye rather than through a camera lens than I normally do. I still got a g...

Re: April 2022 photo of the month competition

I've had a bit of a lean month and have been waiting and hoping to get something decent to photograph without success. The best I can offer this month is this Falcon 7X N814TP departing Stansted on 16th April during the Planewatch morning.... https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52009056955_59872cfad...
