You're right Mike, I caught it on Saturday coming in from Palma around 3pm. It's a former Zoom machine (ex C-GTSN)

here it is coming in to land ..... http://youtu.be/Fd-tr741go0

Spotting weekender in Lanzarote

Hola! Just back from a few days spotting in Lanzarote - plenty of sun, sea......and planes! I can highly recommend it if anyone is thinking about a spotting trip or holiday there. Sadly, a new double fence has gone up all the way around the perimeter since my last visit which has restricted photogra...

Re: Prestwick 14/03/11

Great shots Drew, the Dash 8 was a cracking catch

The An-12 will more than make up for that An-124 you were telling me about last week :thumb: Nice black plume of smoke belching out of the back of it in the second shot :lol:

Great stuff mate :clap:

Re: newcastle airport

Cracking set of pictures Pete. Liked the ones of the Jet2 737 with the engine cowling raised! Is the ex-UAS Bulldog based at Newcastle?

Re: Prestwick 06/03/11

Thanks Reggie! :thumb: It was the first one I'd seen in the new AF colours. Mach One, yes, I was a bit unsure about straying from Canon or Nikon, but the Pentax was getting really good reviews and I've been more than happy with it so far. I'd certainly recommend it for anyone looking for their first...

Re: Manchester 6/3/2011

Some really nice shots there, the ones from the threshold are great. You get a real sense of the A380's huge wingspan on on the third shot. :thumb:

Hi All, Here's a couple of shots from a grey and misty Prestwick earlier this afternoon. Highlight was this rather nice Air France Cargo 747F. http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5098/5503247493_b0f2633551_b.jpg Air France Cargo Boeing 747F F-GIUD at Prestwick on Flickr http://farm6.static.flickr.com/521...

Thanks Drew :thumb:

I hadn't been to Glenrothes for a while and it's always a good place to visit - even if there aren't any planes around it's worth going just for one of the legendary bacon rolls in the clubhouse! :lol:
