Re: SPOTM 2019 Calendar

Apologies for my ignorance but Octobers theme 'holiday' airlines is perplexing me. While I have enjoyed seeing airliners over many years I am a complete novice as to which have only operated 'holiday' flights as opposed to standard scheduled services to holiday destinations. Any chance of a list of ...

Re: SPOTM September 2019 - A dose of the Pitts

Well, as usual to make up the numbers, one from the archives. Rothmans Team Pitts (S2A?) G-SOLO at Sywell, possibly 1981. Not sure why there was somebody upside down in the cockpit...

Re: LAA Sywell 31-8-2019

I used to go to the PFA rallys. Popped over on the Friday thinking I'd have coffee and some cake in the Pilots Mess café - a public area - only to find it was closed off. They wanted £12 for a 3 day pass when I only wanted to go for a coffee. That sort of money is beyond me on my pension, the coffee...

I'll kick this month off with a rather grainy shot taken at LHR in 1977. Strangely enough with all my airliner photos hardly any of them are 'dirty' !

Re: SPOTM July 2019 - French Letters, aircraft with a French registrations

I chose this as it's the cleanest photo I have, my shot of Super Frelons at Kai Tak is a bit meh and my TAT HS748 at LHR are a bit common as is a pile of other stuff. So, Concorde demonstrator F-BTSC at Kai Tak (RAF side) early morning in 1976. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48433251132_4b6db45...

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...

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...

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.
