Re: SPOTM January 2018 - Touch down or lift off

A golden oldie from me, and the usual apologies for the quality of the old negative. :roll:

Re: SPOTM calendar for 2018

Re: SPOTM December 2017, The HS.125 series up to Beechcraft

None of my 125 photos are very good so I'll just throw this one in to make up the numbers and set the ball rolling.

Dan Air

Time for some more nostalgia, here's my small contribution. BAC 1-11 and Comets at Gatwick probably 1978, Dan Air / IAS 707 at Kai Tak 1976. https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4541/24854799888_a90ac8d48e_k.jpg Dan Air 1-11 by Ian Pursey , on Flickr https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4540/38010581384_d69c4d8...

Just to make up the numbers this month as I'm sure there will be more of this beautiful aircraft - but it's the only photo I have of a Monarch aircraft. :blush:

Re: SPOTM September 2017, TAILS - a photo of aircraft tails

Decided to change my entry as this one is clearer and more interesting. A pair of Canadair CL44 with tails swung at Kai Tak in 1976.

Re: How to Post Photos from your Flickr on Civilian Aviation

Thanks for all the help, I've now got Flickr and have used it for my July SPOTM entry - and it works! :clap: :thumbs:

Just means I've got a lot of work to redo everything I've used PB for :roll: (expletives deleted)

Just got the message so having to think about Flickr or getting my son to build me a website. Just wondering though why we have to use a hosting site and not upload direct from own computer like Facebook?
