Re: Canadian Ramblings 3 Fraser River & Coal Harbour

Lovely set.

11yrs since I was there, The Harbour Air HQ at Fraser River is great place to relax on a summer's evening - nice bar and restaurant too.

Re: Prestwick Nostalgia

Excellent set.

A lot of very familiar aircraft in that set, including the ex Aer Lingus MD-11.

Didn't realise FedEx MD-11s wore the lovely blue scheme.

Re: A good Friday at Dublin

Cheers lads.

My first visit of the year, Paul. Only went down for the Jet Airways. I was told the An-12 was to leave on Sunday, then it was changed to 14.00 on Friday and at 12.50 she called up to do.

Regards

A good Friday at Dublin

Having the day off work and with the sun out I decided to pop down to the "local" for a few hours.

A tread to show some of the various aircraft advertising sporting events and teams. With the Rio Olympics and Euros in France this summer, its a fair assumption that there'll be a few more to be unveiled later this year.

Lovely set.

Another vote for the second Etihad A330 but the Flybe is my favourite.

Re: Smoking Permitted

Andy, never understood why they insisted on painting the An-12s white, anyone who can remember the Balkan cubs know that a clean one was nearly as rare as hens teeth.
