Re: 747 at 50

When it comes to nostalgia then for me quality of image is far less important than content. You've got some real classics in there. Ok I'm biased when it comes to 747s - I just love 'em :D. I remember my first spotting trip to Heathrow back in 1985 and will never forget the sound of one taking off b...

Re: Boeing 747 at NWI

Nice one Mark! Reminds me of the C-5 Galaxy that made several approaches back on 18th April 1984 between 1730 and 1800 to be precise :lol: Couldn't believe it at the time. Nice to have something completely different like that. Appropriate registration too although not just VBIG also TOO BIG :lol: Do...

Re: Concorde - 15 years after the final flight

I also only have a few Concorde photos but virtually all rubbish ones which aren't even good enough for this type of thread. Andy has already put up some decent shots of Duxford's G-AXDN so just one different frame from me - F-BTSD on display at Parish Air Show in 2003. This is the same one that app...

Re: General Aviation Queries 1984

Could the Merlin have been 9Q-CQP? This was cancelled officially as G-IIIA on 25/4/84. C/n T-342.

Sorry can't help further nor with the D- queries.

Re: DH Rapide Poppy Drop at Duxford

Highly appropriate Mark. Quite a stark but fitting contrast between the poppy drop and the Concorde droop. Nicely captured. Just watched last night's Festival of Remembrance and now catching up with this morning's Cenotaph ceremony. Never fails to cause wet eyes.

Re: Toulouse

Always nice to see production at various stages.

Just one thing though, F-WZFB is 262 not 252 which doesn't seem to have an allocated serial at the moment.

Re: HMCG Coast Guard AW189 F/O Clacketts Lane Services.

Not too sure about that tie-up. The playback shows 'GU SE of Maidstone at 1020 - it passed Clackett Lane at approx 1002 and was also heading ENE. Just throwing this in as the OP's info and the above tie-up don't match. I'll leave it to you to decide.

Interesting mix from the three fields. When I first saw a Tecnam 2006 It wasn't what I expected as I always thought Tecnams were close to being microlight category!

Re: Heathrow - A Monday in August

Nice set Neil. I'm not too sure about the Swiss either :lol: Nice to see the MD-83 subbing and surprising to see a DHC-8 at LHR too - are they regular? Reminds me of the mid-80s with F.27s etc before everything seemed to go pure jet.
