Re: DC-8

That DC8 is coming up to 51 years old ! Starting with Finnair in 1969, it went to the French AF, then Air Transport International before Samaritan's Purse. Probably the only DC8 active ? Others registered - NASA has one and Governments of Gabon and Togo, and the private VP-BHM but are they active ? ...

Re: Olev Antonov Museum Kyiv, Ukraine.

Very nice to see. I do not normally lug my DSLR on holiday, so quite happy seeing 'record' shots. Quality of digital camera's is improving at such a rate. For me, I it works seeing a general overview of what is in a museum, both civvy and mil. Your mils pics would be appreciated on FC. 57 red Tu-22M...

Biggin Hill 18 Sep 2019

A couple of hours at Biggin. Apparently, the day before hosted "Aerocharter" which meant a few extra biz. Lovely blue sky, but horrible heat haze on the "bump". (And wish they could do something about the road cones !). Pete. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48760758062_35d6be8619_b.jpg B737 G-SW...

Re: 100th Anniversary 1st Aerial Flight England-Aussie livery Fokker 70

You certainly get some interesting paint jobs through Norwich. I enjoy your regular updates.
This one is a bit drab for me, lacking colour, but probably meant to be sympathetic to the time period.
Still a nice catch.

Re: LAA Sywell 31-8-2019

Thanks everyone. The first rally I went to was Cranfield in 1990. I drove through a gate, stopped and said to somebody "Where do I pay?". They replied "Just go in". Don't know if the early one's were free, but I have paid ever since ! I enjoy the general freedom to wander, see the aircraft up close ...
