Luton 21 Aug 2019

A few hours spent at Luton. Those familiar with Luton know the metal fence near the hotel area. Close packed upright strips less than one inch apart. No good for a SLR camera. These are taken with a Canon Ixus, the lens small enough to get some results, sometimes, with a bit of cropping. Need a bit ...

Re: UR-CZZ An-12 at Bournemouth

Very nice.
The background tree's (rather than normal airport buildings) really set it off.
You must have had a good spot for photos.

Re: Old Warden 08-08-2019, more gathered Moths

Always nice to see De Havilland aircraft. Used to enjoy the Woburn events.
I actually like the NC854 best, they are unusual with the twin tail.
Nice shots.

Re: Bristol Balloon Fiesta 2019

I enjoy seeing HAFB - the range of imaginative colour schemes, and the special shapes. I have been to the fiesta three times, enjoyed the balloons, but not how crowded it has become. Fairford RIAT used to have balloon launches - morning to have something to look at while queuing, evening to stop eve...

Re: Gatwick in the 90s

Always like a bit of nostalgia, airlines long gone.
Recognised all but the B737 Air Atlanta lease to Aviareps.
The backgrounds contain interest too, a Saudi B727, Air Ops Tristar, etc.
Thanks Mark,

Interesting memories - always nice to see old photos. Thanks Ian. Re the old Air France livery- F-WTSA went into Heathrow in October 1974.

Re: G-MGPS Leonardo AW169 in Bedford, 13/07/2019

Done a bit of digging.
I wonder if it is actually night vision equipment to enable single pilot operation.
Noticed the same mounting on pictures of G-KSST, the Aw169 of Kent Ambulance.

Re: G-MGPS Leonardo AW169 in Bedford, 13/07/2019

That's a nice catch.

Any ideas, anyone, on the under nose torrent mounting ?
Trying to work out if it is camera / spotlight / night vision etc. I could understand those being on a police H/C, but interested what it is on a medical ship.
Cheers, Pete.

Nice to see some air to air pictures. Was your lucky day !
Always liked the SF-260, so streamlined. The military versions certainly look the part as a ' fighter'.

What did you go up in ?
