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...

Re: SPOTM August 2019 - Smoke or Vapour

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' !

Concorde in Hong Kong 1976

A few photos from way back when, well the better ones at least. Concorde demonstrator F-BTSC at Kai Tak. Hope you find them of some interest. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48324465777_3ceb6eb3e1_z.jpg Concorde Kai Tak by Ian Pursey , on Flickr https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48324360561_00...

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...

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...

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...

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.

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.
