Re: SPOTM May 2020 - Airliners in special and retro schemes

As I've got absolutely no photos of retro schemes, I'll go with G-EZUI in easyJet's special orange scheme for their 200th Airbus, taken at Luton on 01/04/2012.

Re: Lockdown Garden Spots

Not posted for a while, so rather a lot this time. Since the easing of the lockdown last week, GA is very noticeably back. 7th May N109FE 2014 Boeing 767-3S2F(ER) from Dublin to Stansted as Fedex FX5201. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49920423373_1002e16579_b.jpg 9th May TF-AMP 1990 Boeing 747-...

Re: Lockdown Garden Spots

One from Sunday. PH-MPS 1990 Boeing 747-412 (BCF) from Miami to Schiphol (although FlightRadar said it was going to Stansted, which did seem rather unlikely when it was still at 35,000 feet over me in Bedford). First time I've ever seen a Martinair aircraft. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49796...

Nothing at all yesterday, a couple of light twins today. Also the Magpas air ambulance again, but I won't bore you with more pictures of that. G-BWLF 1979 Cessna 404 Titan out of East Midlands straight over my garden this morning. Looks like it did some survey work over south Hertfordshire and Essex...

Lockdown Garden Spots

Re: Airships

I've always been an airship fan. One of my childhood memories is a SkyShip in FujiFilm colours that I saw flying over from my back garden in Luton and a Cessna flew past and gave a wing waggle. This was back in the late 80s/early 90s when Luton Airport had a lot less airliner traffic and still had a...
