Martin Cheers Martin-yes I remember trips to London behind 86s from Preston in the 70s and 80s-its hard to believe they're over 50 years old- also still like to see them doubling up o...

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

I’ve decided to go with this one purely for nostalgic reasons. This was the first Boeing 747 I ever saw, photographed with my first SLR camera, on my first ever trip abroad! PH-BUB “The Danube” at Amsterdam Schiphol in April 1971 (delivered to KLM on 4 March 1971). https://farm8.staticflickr.com/782...

Re: BO-AC is back, Heathrow 19-02-2019

OMG it's like going back in time! Just imagine if we could have photographed all those lovely aircraft back then, with the cameras of today, with limitless amounts of digital shots instead of film!
Absolutely brilliant, Andy.

Re: Manchester on 14 December

Some lovely early morning light on those shots. Every credit for getting out that early. Thats the only problem on that 23L path at this time of year though- if its mild theres's loads of mud and if it's cold its frozen solid! Roll on spring and summer!

Re: Bristol-Lulsgate - Rain, wind and sun

Fantastic shots with some really impressive backdrops. Really like the first and last ones. and the take off one of OE-LQJ (Easyjet) in the sun with the dark skies behind is a cracker(who would have thought Easyjets could be so photogenic and interesting!).
Thanks for posting them.

Great shots. Still think for the UK tour they should have replaced the shark nose with that of a Womble. Preferably Uncle Bulgaria!!
Cheers acw367 - somehow I don't think Great Uncle Bulgaria plastered over the nose would have had the same effect - interesting thought though!
