Re: SPOTM February 2021, aircraft of the Iberian peninsula past and present

I'll kick this off. Unfortunately I have very little Iberian area in the archives, my Iberia DC10 is too yellow. So I'll go with this hazy shot of a TAP Boeing 707 taken at LHR in the summer of 1977. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50940283477_caf1555006_z.jpg TAP 707 by Ian Pursey , on Flickr

Don't remember the number of any of the buildings - except 109, a grotty, damp, cold and dark blister where we were restoring the Bf109 'Black 6'

Re: Northolt Nightshoot XI

Nice shots. When I was based at Northolt they didn't do any of this stuff, in fact I had to get permission to carry a camera at work and get the aircrews permission if I wanted to take a photo of their aircraft. Still, given the people passing through I suppose it was understandable even though ther...

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 :)

F27. Ok the photo is a bit grotty but it's different... https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/5...

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.
