Re: Bristol - Sat 20 April 2019

A nice set of pics there Roger. The TUI B738 lining up inthe morning light looks great and a very low shutter speed on the Aurigny.

You didn't happen to get a picture of the Ryanair Sun B738 from Krakow, at a guess about 9:30ish, as my daughter was on it?

Re: Tiger Moth Gathering - Henstridge 20 April

Thanks for the comments on the pictures. Regarding the Gannet, it was a T2 not a T5 as I mistakenly stated. I spent a good number of years actively involvced in establishing the Museum of Berkshire Aviation on the old airfield at Woodley, nr Reading. In the early '90s we were keen to get hold of a G...

Tiger Moth Gathering - Henstridge 20 April

At short notice I attended a small event involving the gathering together of the six Tiger Moths that have been restored by Kevin Crumplin at Henstridge Airfield (HMS Dipper) in Dorset. These Tiger Moths are quite unique in that having been meticulously restored to their original fit and specificati...

Re: Premier Inn, Bath Road

Andy, I stayed at the Bath Road Premier Inn in June last year with similar intentions as yours, using the long day for late evening and early morning photos. I had a 2nd floor room on the south side, but the room window had a film coating on the outside which made photography through the glass impos...

Re: Photo of the Month winners , February 2019

Thanks for the votes.

I had no idea that the Beluga XL would make a fly through that day, so was just a stroke of luck on my part.

Re: Concorde-Long gone.

That's a magnificent set of Concorde images. I'm particularly envious of the two Singapore Airlines shots, was that livery just worn on the port side of 'AD'?, which you caught wearing both N and G- registrations. Also the old Air France livery shot - great. Whilst interesting, the Pepsi livery neve...

Re: Same to you pal!

That's quite unusual, quite often lots of waving from aircrew or puzzled looks from their self loading cargo.

I see it's registered to a shell company in Salt Lake City, otherwise you could have emailed the real owners with a memento picture.

Re: February Highlights Heathrow

This was on the ET711 which is scheduled for departure at 10:20 on Saturday mornings and 07:55 on Sundays. It doesn't run every week (I note for instance it didn't operate yesterday or today). My shot was on the 24th Feb and it had operated for the three weeks before that. Curiously it also didn't ...

Re: Gipsy Moth - circa 1983

That's a fine clump of Strathallan turf clinging to the tail skid.

I have a bad photo of the same aircraft taken in September 1985 at an event on the old Woodley airfield, now a large housing estate.

Thanks for posting the pics

Re: February Highlights Heathrow

That's a great set Dennis, which I must have missed when first posted on Thursday. The EL AL and Icelandair retros were good catches and well photographed.

I've not seen the Ethiopian departing before, is that a new time slot or was it running very late or early!!!

Heathrow 09R Departures

Many thanks for the comments back on the BA retro BOAC banking shots i posted on Tuesday. Now I've had chance to catalogue, sort and process my other photographs from the day out. Firstly, I've never seen the park at Feltham so busy with enthusiasts on a weekday, usually I'm all on my own but on thi...

Heathrow - BOAC 747 Banking

The BOAC 747 was off to Dubai today with a 12.35 departure. Not the best route for a banking turn out from 09R, but as I was up in West London and the weather was good (not great as there was lots of atmospheric distortion) I went along to the park at Feltham, along with numerous other photographers...

Re: Bristol - 23 Feb 2019

A good set of pictures Roger, particularly like the first of the Easyjet in morning light - you said you'll get there early.

Looks as though you had a good selection of biz jets to add to the Easyjets and Ryanairs.

Re: Sunset at LCY - Feb 15 2019

Nice pictures Mike, the backdrops at LCY add furtherinterest to them.
Looks like you can only operate into City if you fly E-Jets these days!
It used to be almost exclusively Dash 7s and then BAe146s, times have changed and as you say it appears to be Embraers these days.
