Re: SPOTM July 2021 - aircraft based on a former Soviet bloc design

I'll throw this one in, could be clearer. Aeroflot IL62 at LHR 1978. (My LOT IL62 is a better shot but has a Luftwaffe Jetstar in the foreground...)

Re: SPOTM June 2021 - Canadian registered aircraft

Unfortunately I have very few Canadian registered and none are really worth putting up here. But to kick things off, one of my favourite shots. CP Air B747-200 C-FCRB Empress of Canada departing Kai Tak in 1976. After starting from the harbour end and roaring over the rooftops of Kowloon she turned ...

Re: SPOTM February 2021, aircraft of the Iberian peninsula past and present

I'll kick this off. Unfortunately I have very little Iberian area in the archives, my Iberia DC10 is too yellow. So I'll go with this hazy shot of a TAP Boeing 707 taken at LHR in the summer of 1977. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50940283477_caf1555006_z.jpg TAP 707 by Ian Pursey , on Flickr

Re: Northolt Nightshoot XI

Nice shots. When I was based at Northolt they didn't do any of this stuff, in fact I had to get permission to carry a camera at work and get the aircrews permission if I wanted to take a photo of their aircraft. Still, given the people passing through I suppose it was understandable even though ther...

Re: SPOTM 2021 calendar

Nice selection, pity I haven't been out and active for years so will probably only manage 6 or 7 entries at best. Shame about December being 2021 photos of biz jets only as mine all date from the 1970s :)

Had a few to choose from but this is the sharpest (but I might change my mind :D ) As there's another TAT F27 entry I've changed my mind :) So on a very wet day at Kai Tak in 1976, Philipines Government (?) F27. Ok the photo is a bit grotty but it's different... https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/5...

Change of mind. Slightly better quality, but only just, and a bit more exotic. Air Siam DC10 "Thailand's First DC10", Kai Tak 1976/7.

In and out of Kai Tak 1976

(in)famous for its over the roof tops approach and departure Kai Tak's single runway ran from the buildings of Kowloon out into the harbour, The harbour approach/departure was a lot less demanding :D Just to give you a flavour of those far off days, now Kai Tak has gone, here's a few photos from tho...
