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 ...

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...

Re: Kemble Storage - 02-07-20

Good mix and very good panorama shot of the heavies :clap: :clap:

Interesting that the Aigle Azur A320 is moved out the scrap line to where 4L-TGN used to be, probably getting clogged up so having to move things around out the way!

Re: B'mouth, Kemble & Cardiff

Stunning shots! Absolute brilliant 747 shots, shame it's looking rough but the One World 747 is well captured with that well worn and weathered look. Can you get round most of Bournemouth in a car? Last time I was there was a good 6+ years ago and only once, seem to recall turning up to some gatehou...

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 :???:

Love all the FexEx MD11 shots, captured very well, also like the Swift Air Embraer with all the engine heat haze, well captured that :thumbs:

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: FedEx MD-11

To be fair that is still excellent shots!

I do like the second one, but even the first one is very good, not sure everyone likes close angles but if they are sharp like that then I like them, a bit different, brings out the detail, even handy reference if you are doing a model kit of one!

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 ...

Re: Large Passenger Jets Arrivals

With thanks again for the heads up, TF-AAD landed at Kemble 13:05l. No flyover or anything from this one, just straight in approach as it started to tip down with rain! 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 ...

Re: SPOTM May 2020 - Retro and special schemes voting poll

Well deserved win, that was a cracking shot, but there was so many very good entries and mad schemes, it was very hard to choose 3!

Am I loosing the plot as I thought there was another BOAC B747 entry as well :???: :???: I can't see it!

Final Corsair B747 F-GTUI arriving at Kemble - 15/06/2020

Despite not being a million miles away from Cotswold Airport, I've never seen anything arrive there, never mind a 747 on it's final trip. Having missed the other two due to weather, I went out for Corsair's very last B747 for storage, F-GTUI. Having seen the video's of the other two Corsair 747 arri...
