That was indeed a fantastic day Andy. Hopefully not too long before we can enjoy that location once again.

Re: Kemble Storage - 02-07-20

The panoramas are excellent. Quite amazing how many a/c are there now, and the proportion of heavies.

Re: Stansted airport - a guide for visiting aviation enthusiasts

Information posted on the Stansted Google Group (credit James Slew) indicates that seven are parked northside and visible from the footpath from the Ash pub, one is in the Ryanair hangar, with four more arriving. So you may not get them all if you visit, but you'll see the majority of them.

Re: N609UP B.747 over Rayne this morning (13-05-2020)

Andrewsfield have just informed us of this DoT document https://mcusercontent.com/53d1ad9d4f5a52cad92d8b224/files/d26d5be1-3aa0-4189-bba0-7a50d25cc652/Covid_Guidance_GA_Recreational_Flying_15_May_2020.pdf , so expect a further gradual resumption of private flying based on those restrictions, and con...

Another Stansted catch-up post from me, this time from 3 December 19 with some interesting visitors for the NATO summit that was being held in London at that time. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49888248756_167e943ac0_o.jpg Turkish Government 747-8ZV BBJ by Nick Challoner , on Flickr https://li...

Re: N609UP B.747 over Rayne this morning (13-05-2020)

One thought - is GA flying allowed now, I wonder if the local airfields will start to become active? Not yet unfortunately. Andrewsfield quoted this from the CAA in an email they sent out earlier today: Dear all, We wanted to provide a brief update on the current status of the government guidance a...

Nice shot Andy. Looks like it has a tasty livery - be great to shoot it on the ground one day.

Re: Back to the 90s at LHR/LGW

Again, a great selection of shots, bringing back fond memories. My favourite a/c among them is actually the Saudi 727-100 in the background of the KTHY MD-90 shot! Looks stunning in that Saudia livery (as pretty much everything did).

Re: British Airways Viscount 800 G-AOYG Turnhouse 1976

I'm sure I remember reading there were two different types of propellers fitted to Viscounts. I thought it was quite early in their service history though, not as late as your photos.

That's a great selection of photos, bringing back many memories. Doesn't the DC-10 look fabulous in Caledonian livery?

Re: London Stansted, 23 August 2019

Thanks Wallie. Yes, the Loganair livery looks lovely on most aircraft, but does work especially well on the 340.
