Stansted 30/08/2020

As Andy mentioned in this thread , he and I responded to a request to photograph the last flight of an easyJet captain before being made redundant. As usual, I am lot slower than Andy in preparing my images, so some of these may seem familiar from Andy's post. I hope you enjoy them anyway. Rarest vi...

Re: stansted 30-08-2020 - on a mission with Porkscratching

It was great to see you again Andy. I was very pleased with the quantity and variety of movements, despite COVID-19. You've got some great angles as usual, especially the Falcon 2000.

Wonderful to see airshow photos being posted again. It seems nobody has anything negative to say about the event, which is fantastic. Well done Shuttleworth.

Lovely shots LondonEye, especially the cargo one. Here's a couple from me, of the BOAC retro-jet with some friends at Fairford last year: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48356954547_db40b5d59d_h.jpg BOAC Retro-Jet with the Red Arrows by Nick Challoner , on Flickr https://live.staticflickr.com/65...

Lovely Andy. Very handy that footpath! Have you ever been gliding? If not, next time you go ask them for a trial flight (COVID-19 allowing). Most gliding clubs are very friendly and will try and fit you in. It's a wonderful experience.

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.

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...

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).
