Manchester Southside 16/09 - Runway 23R rotations

Hello all, As the broken Dakota blocked runway 23L for the remainder of the day (well there was a good 1 and a half hours before the operation was due to change to 23R for take offs) I stayed put and tried some photography of stuff lifting off from 23R (and some reverse thrust landing's too) and was...

Re: Heathrow 09L arrivals, 18-09-2019 from Colne Park

Brilliant set Andy! That last one is very good :lol: Great catch of the Aeroflot special, I still have yet to see, and the LOT hired in 737, the first time I saw that I thought the livery was a 737 house scheme, especially when I thought it said 'Next Gen'! Lovely Chinese stuff, the new China Southe...

Manchester Runway 23L Other liners and a Dakota - 16-09-2019

Hello all, Following on from the heavies, here is the rest of the other stuff. Generally the normal stuff, but I did like the Ernest A320 that turned up, never heard of that before! Also for a first visit and all day's to pick, I turn up the day the BBMF Dakota call's a mayday, so most unusual catch...

Re: Liverpool 14/9/19

Very nice set! Sun might be the wrong way but the Mersey makes a brilliant background in these shots! Nice catch of the Jota too. Was up there on a coach not long ago but was working as a courier, there was 6 hours I had spare, but wasn't sure if I could get from the Mercury Hotel to the Airport and...

Manchester Runway 23L Heavies - 16-09-2019

Hello All, Finally made my first visit to Manchester Airport on Saturday 16th September, with a 3 hour drive leaving at 5am, stayed at a lodge at nearby Wilmslow for a 2 day session especially it being a way up from Wiltshire for a day out, so was worth staying. Parked at the Airport Inn and paid th...

Cracking shot's Andy as always :thumbs:

That Virgin A350 look's strange, mind you so does the BA one. Strange in the way of not used to seeing the liveries on this, will become normal eventually though!

Re: London Heathrow Bank Holiday Monday 26/08

Thank you, very interesting!! Were you near the road?

If you saw someone with a fold up chair, and wearing a black Airbus A350 T-shirt, that was me, if you were much further down the tree line from the road you probably didn't see me :lol:

London Heathrow Bank Holiday Monday 26/08

Hello all, Not been on here for quite some time! And apart from Fairford RIAT I haven't really been anywhere recently plane spotting, only do RIAT because I get a discounted ticket at work on our coach (any plane spotting I have done has been on working away trips, so logging rather than photos) Nev...

Hello all, Couple of questions as I'm looking at booking a hotel for 14th September for one night for a weekend spotting at Manchester, not been before, but looking for one with free cancellation the day before in case the weathers bad.

Birmingham Car Park 5 on the day

Hello all, Can you turn up on the day with a car for Car Park 5 or is it pre-book only? Website mentions a lot about pre-booking but nothing that specifically states 'pre-booking is not essential' On a drive up north on Saturday and depending on the weather I'm thinking of pulling off the M42 into t...

Dusseldorf Heavies 06/03/2019

A partially dull day on the 6th March but some nice heavies, nice to see the two Eurowings/Brussels Airlines A340's too, and have a good close view of the Emirates A380 which makes a A320 and B737 around it look like toys :lol: All taken from the viewing deck https://live.staticflickr.com/7923/33661...

Brilliant mix there Andy :thumbs:

Cracking shots, didn't even know there was such thing as a Atlas Global 330!

Love the KLM Cargo 747, looks a bit more 'fresher' than the old livery that was getting rather battered on these

Those backgrounds make the photo's look interesting, love the Kalitta 747 and the Frontier A320 shots, nice shot of a new Delta A350 too :clap:
