Re: SPOTM 2021 calendar

Nice selection, pity I haven't been out and active for years so will probably only manage 6 or 7 entries at best. Shame about December being 2021 photos of biz jets only as mine all date from the 1970s :)

Re: SPOTM October 2020 - Fokkers (clean or dirty)

Had a few to choose from but this is the sharpest (but I might change my mind :D ) As there's another TAT F27 entry I've changed my mind :) So on a very wet day at Kai Tak in 1976, Philipines Government (?) F27. Ok the photo is a bit grotty but it's different... https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/5...

I'll kick this off with one you've all seen before, unvotable but it helps the numbers of entries :D

Re: SPOTM August 2020 - Douglas commercial aircraft

Change of mind. Slightly better quality, but only just, and a bit more exotic. Air Siam DC10 "Thailand's First DC10", Kai Tak 1976/7.

In and out of Kai Tak 1976

(in)famous for its over the roof tops approach and departure Kai Tak's single runway ran from the buildings of Kowloon out into the harbour, The harbour approach/departure was a lot less demanding :D Just to give you a flavour of those far off days, now Kai Tak has gone, here's a few photos from tho...

I'll kick this off with an old b&w shot of OO-SDN coming in to land at LHR, 1977/8. Had a few others, in colour at Kai Tak, to choose from but this looked the sharpest.

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' !

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...
