Now changed aircraft to TF-AAD but all other info above is still correct

UPDATE : due out at 2pm
(31st) out at 12:40pm.
So delayed until 12.40 tomorrow, or is that another one out, and one still due at 2pm today?

Rather windy and wet tomorrow!

Artwork Specials at Truckfest South West

Hello all, Not a truck spotter myself, as in I don't jot numbers, but I have an interest in trucks (especially the sound of a Scania V8 :Wow:) and going to Truckfest gives a chance to see some special schemes as well. Truckfest South West was on at Shepton Mallet this year, and turning up early on a...

Re: Big Jet TV - good or bad?

Most people would say turn the sound off, but that doesn't help as I like to hear planes taking off or landing, especially when a RB211 is involved. He get's civil aircraft wrong, I know for beginners you have to start somewhere, but didn't take me long to work out ID features. I'm not on about the ...

viewing locations

Hello all, Is it still possible to access the area past the security gates for a few minutes for number logging? Also I notice there is a fence round the B3073 assuming this is where most the BA stuff is parked and viewable. There seems to be a pavement, but can't see anywhere to park the car, is th...

Interesting! Indigo logos taken off at Baku I take it.

Apparently there seems to be some blog or site that lists arrival times, anyone heard of this? I can't find one :???:

Re: June 2020 photo of the month competition

My entry seeing as it's the only place I've been to this month is B747 F-GTUI arriving at Kemble for the last time, bringing a close to the Corsair B747 chapter.

Re: Saudi Arabian 747 TF-AAD arrival at Kemble for scrapping

Amazing footage that thank you!!

As I commented on the video, liked the capture of it throwing the anchors out, reversers on, brakes, the lot and slamming to a stop, and at least you got one last slight spool as it stopped too short, great capture!

Caribbean Airlines over the UK in 2015?

Just wondering has anyone ever logged a Caribbean heavy over the UK, not necessarily to a UK airport, just at least OTT. I have a log from Southampton from the 23rd April 2015 which has: - 9Y-LHR (OTT) On Freebirddb this flags up as a Caribbean Air Boeing B767. I was a bit stupid back then and just ...

Video to follow later, although had to cut it short so that the kit didn’t get wet :( For info if anyone planning on visiting for ...

Gosh I have load's to choose from, various points but oddly I am going to choose G-BYGC as well, with her doing a flypast at Fairford RIAT 2019 with the Red Arrows. I chose this because personally this was quite special, something that's not going to happen again, and a retro scheme that's not going...

Hello,

Yes it would have been about 1445 - 1500l heading north, north east. Only one showing it seems but livery doesn't match, can only assume it's been repainted in recent times :???:

Thank you :thumb:

The picture on Flight Radar shows it as white. I can only find pictures of this in white but they aren't recent pictures though. Has anyo...

Hello all, Can you turn up on the day with a car for Car Park 5 or is it pre-book only?

Re: SPOTM February 2019 - Jumbo Jubilee - 50 years of the mighty Boeing 747

Lots to choose from, but for this I had to pick something from Amsterdam Schiphol Taxiway Q. My favorite spot at the airport and my all time favorite place to watch a 747 roll by. Just having an un-obstructive view as this beast slowly taxi's by you with the wingtip not at all far from you is just, ...
