Re: Heathrow

Brings back memories. I used to go down from Northolt on my afternoons off and spend time on the viewing terrace which was on 'Queens Building' ? Spent some time working out of a portacabin at Fields when our runway was closed for resurfacing and we operated the 32 Squadron HS125s from LHR.

Re: SPOTM February 2024, F is for February and for Fokker

Apologies for the quality, I've only got two Fokker aircraft in my archive - and this is the best! TAT F27 F-BUTA at LHR in 1978. Not competition quality but it helps the entry numbers...

Re: HKG-6/G-BPCL @ Duxford - 01/02/24

Very nice. :D Thankyou. Back in my day at Kai Tak HKG-6 was an Alouette... Indeed it was, before going on to be HKG-3 (which had also been used for another Alouette and would also be a Dauphin). https://www.helis.com/database/org/Royal-Hong-Kong-Auxiliary-Air-Force/ I have a photo (1976) of an Alou...

Re: SPOTM November2023 - Concorde, (celebrating 20 years of retirement).

I'll kick this off with Concorde demonstrator F-BTSC in the morning sunshine at Kai Tak, Hong Kong in 1976. Actually parked on the RAF part of Kai Tak ready for a party in the evening.

Nice set of pictures, a place I haven't been to yet. Noticed on the wall behind 'White 14' are pieces of 'Black 6' from its unfortunate demise at Duxford.

Great photos. I've got one of G-AREA when it visited Northolt in 1978, but in a different colour scheme.
