Re: SPOTM April 2019 - Lockheed

I'll kick this month off. At first I thought Tristars or L100 then remembered this. Breitling Super Connie at Farnborough 20 July 2014.

Re: can we have more comments on photos please?

I agree with what has been said about clogging up with repeated 'great pic' etc type comments. Also the like button has merit to a point. C&C - well and good but as has been pointed out not everybody can afford the best kit or the time to wait for that 'perfect' shot. Personally I rarely take photos...

Re: 747 at 50

Great selection of photos Mark. I thought I'd done a thread in the 'Themed' section but on checking I obviously had not. So, vol 1 from me: Wardair at GTW the rest from LHR, all 1977-8. Apologies for the poor quality. https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7914/46191721905_2da449e3dd_b.jpg Wardair 747 by Ia...

Re: SPOTM February 2019 - Jumbo Jubilee - 50 years of the mighty Boeing 747

Decisions, decisons. So many photos of 747s to choose from. But in the end I'll go with this one, just because I like the shot even though it is distant. I think the colours are nice too. :D It was this or a Seaboard World Containership about to touch down at Heathrow. CP Air departing Kai Tak after...

Re: SPOTM November 2018 'a photo taken from inside an aircraft'

OK, I'll kick this off with - NO not a Wessex! - but a shot of a Cathay Pacific B707 heading to the terminal after landing over the roof tops into Kai Tak (1976). Photo taken from the left hand seat of, yes a Wessex :roll: https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1916/30844869547_b945e11330_z.jpg 28 33 by Ian...

Re: SPOTM October 2018 - Oktoberfest, any German registered aircraft

Just to keep the number of entries up and start the ball rolling. A rather distant shot of Lufthansa DC10 just landed at Kai Tak after the famous roof top approach. View from my window, Hong Kong island in the background. (it was either this or a Boeing 707 at a wet Kai Tak) https://farm2.staticflic...

Re: SPOTM calendar for 2018

So the photo can be taken from a military aircraft looking at a civilian one? yes that's correct. But if it's just the interior of a military aircraft that will not be acceptable. andy Thanks, I've got an interesting, but not vote-worthy, shot to make up the numbers so that's November taken care of...

Good picture - unfortunately never to be seen again at LHR. As well as blue and green, what other colours did TAT display on their F27's?
Not sure about the F27s but I've got a photo of one of their HS748 in an orange/red scheme.
