Re: SPOTM October 2019 - British holiday airlines of the past

Managed to dig out something to replace the Monarch, as I've posted that on here before. G-TCBB Boeing 757-236 at Grenoble on 10th March 2012, waiting to take me home from snowboarding at Les Deux Alpes.

Re: October 2019 photo of the month competition

I'll go with G-DRAM at Shuttleworth Race Day on 6th October for now. Might change it if and when I finish editing my photos from the day. Doubt I'll be photographing much else this month.[

Shuttleworth Race Day, 06/10/19

The weather was far from ideal, but thankfully the rain stopped early in the morning. The wind gradually increased through the day and put paid to several of the scheduled display items. However, as usual, Shuttleworth still managed to put on a good show. Some non-display aircraft arriving to start ...

Snowdon Squirrel, 14/05/18

I walked up Snowdon last year and have only just got round to editing the photos. We went up via the Rhyd Ddu path, and close to the beginning of the walk we found this helicopter. It was up and down all day with underslung loads of slate. G-HITI 2016 Airbus Helicopters AS350B3 Ecureuil https://live...

Re: Agusta 206 @ Scone

Nice shot although I'm not sure of the colour scheme, I think it looks a bit dated. Martin I think it's right that it has a dated colour scheme as it's a Jet Ranger. They've been around for years. I remember when I was a kid every helicopter you'd see was a Jet Ranger. They seem pretty rare nowaday...

They'd actually got a mile or two further than Cardington, but must've passed to a bit to the north of it.

I'll go with something a little different this month.

Balloon in Bedford, 14/09/19

Sometimes you don't have to go looking for aircraft, they come to you! I was sitting in the living room on a Saturday morning when my daughter said "I can see a hot air balloon". Expecting to see it floating somewhere in the distance I looked out and was rather taken aback that it almost filled up t...

Nice shots. I see that red Hughes 500 flying over me in Bedfordshire all the time. I believe it's based at a local farm.

Comet and Cub at Old Warden, 25/08/19

Had to go for a drive on Sunday to get the baby to sleep, so what better destination. Wasn't particularly busy, but I got there just in time to see Dodge Bailey bringing the Comet back from displaying at Little Gransden and giving us a couple of nice flypasts before landing. Quite a lot of heat haze...

Hi Pete. It's a spotlight. Presumably so they can see what they're landing on when it's dark.

Re: July 2019 photo of the month competition

In case I don't get around to photographing/posting anything else this month, I'll kick things off with one that would've been suitable for last month's SPOTM, G-MGPS Leonardo AW169 in Bedford on 13th July.

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

As I was loading up the car with concrete to take to the tip on Saturday, I saw a helicopter come over the house, bank round and start descending. Guessing that Bedford Park was the most suitable landing site in that direction I jumped in the car and headed there to find the Magpas air ambulance cha...

Not a lot of French stuff in my portfolio, but I eventually managed to find this one. F-HCIE La Compagnie Boeing 757-204 at Luton on 6th May 2015.
