Re: SPOTM May 2021 GROUNDED

I may as well kick things off with my recent photo of G-AOVS. I think this is as unlikely to fly again as you can get!

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: 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...

Re: SPOTM January 2020 - ANY airliner photographed in 2019 which has not been placed in a photo competition

I think the only airliners I photographed last year were the Dakotas at the Shuttleworth Flying Festival on 2nd June, so here's N103NA "Flabob Express" tail up as it departs as the first of seven Dakotas in the stream take off.

Re: SPOTM December 2019 - Winter Wonderland, a civilian aircraft with snow or/and Ice

I'll go with one from Luton too. G-EZBV on 11th February 2012. I seem to remember the temperature being -8°C on this morning. People all over Facebook were moaning about the cold and staying in and I put on my snowboarding gear and went to photograph aeroplanes! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/4...
