Re: Innsbruck, Austria

Not wishing to detract from the lovely aircraft but that backdrop in the first shot is stunning. I love the alpine airfields settings like this one. Had planned Switzerland and Austria road tour but that's all on hold now. Hopefully in the next year or two it will happen, fingers crossed.

Re: World Vintage Air Rally 1990

Neil this is a great post with every one a gem! I would see a Zimbabwe-registered aircraft as a catch anytime. Thanks for posting.

As good if not better than part 1! Some real classic types in this set and great light and colours too.

Lovely set Mick. Rougham is my "lunchtime local" - or was until lockdown. I usually seem to miss their events due to various reasons so good to see what turned out.

Re: G-ROBN livery help

Hi James, FR24 playback shows G-ROBN over Trowbridge roughly NE-SW at approx 14:35 UTC , or 15:35 BST so if this ties in with your sighting then that's your aircraft. Just noticed it flew earlier heading the other way(approx NNE) at 11:05 (12:05 local/BST). Again this may tie in. Hopefully one of th...

Very nice Paul - like the Herc in the case too but we won't mention that - :oops: .Is that over on FC by any chance? I'm not a modeller but I do like to see some of the masterpieces that appear.

Re: Lockdown Garden Spots

I know this one has been posted before but apart from distant trails I have seen hardly any civil aircraft over home since lockdown - at least not with a camera to hand. Magpas G-MGPS landed not far away in Brandon, Suffolk this afternoon for an unknown incident and left best part of an hour later h...

The only half-decent one I can find. PH-BXY seen at Edinburgh 6th June 2015 as part of a non-spotting holiday (is there such a thing? :lol: )

I do have G-EUUS so here it is arriving at Heathrow (taken from the Colne Valley park area) on 18th June 2014. I also have 'UI a few minutes later but I'll leave Andy with that one as I'm sure it will be a better shot (at least a different angle anyway!) https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/498383368...

I've got several more if needed but either not that great or much the same. I'm sure there are better ones from others! To keep it going here's a couple more.

Another Dove scheme - G-EUPA taken on finals to LHR 27 at Colnbrook 17/06/2014. I spent a week on a course staying at the old Jurys Inn overlooking the airport. Colnbrook was a good quiet spot to park up and get some evening arrivals. Should have a few more if needed - I'll see how it goes. https://...
