Re: 737 variants -100 to -900

Please don't ask me which marks these are as I have no idea. All were taken pre-1979; LHR and GTW are 1977-8 and Kai Tak are 1976-7. Royal Brunei, Malaysian Airline System, Air Nauru, China Airlines all at Kai Tak. Sabena and Aer Lingus at LHR, Britannia at GTW. http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr...

The other big trijet - the DC10

Apologies that my first photo has two DC10 in it :roll: Apologies also (as always) for the quality, but sometimes the content makes up for it. http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr148/waghorn41/forum%20stuff/DC10/ANA%20727_zpswtaowhtd.jpg http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr148/waghorn41/forum%20st...

The only photo of an Islander I've got, date must be 1972 or earlier. Taken at Sywell.

Re: HS125 - let's see them

Did the CAA operate any other 125 apart from G-AVDX? If not then I saw that particular aircraft many times when I was based at RAF Northolt. Whenever it appeared on the arrivals list we knew who the passengers would be, either Michael Foot or Tony Benn as they refused to fly in RAF aircraft.

Re: Boeing jet airliners

I've got a load of 707, 727, 737, and 747 taken at Kai Tak 1975-7. None of the newer stuff though. Will have a sort and try and pick some of the more unusual out.

Jetstreams anyone?

Lovely aircraft. Apologies for the quality but these were taken on (if I remember correctly) a plastic camera back in the late 60's or very early 70's. Location was Sywell and I think there might have been 2 or 3 lined up at one time (when I didn't have my camera...) http://i478.photobucket.com/albu...

Just a thought but wouldn't it be possible to add a comments thread for each comp so that people can post when questions are fresh in the mind? Or is that another admin nightmare...

Re: SPOTM March 2015 - Trijets

Apologies for the quality, but it's quite a rare bird. Chinese Trident at Kai Tak in 1976. Couldn't always get down to the fence in time for photos so virtually all were taken from the window of my room overlooking the airport. http://i478.photobucket.com/albums/rr148/waghorn41/forum%20stuff/CAAC%20...

Re: a gaggle of CL44s

Glad you like them, unfortunately I haven't cared for the negs as much as I should so the quality is not too good after 39 years. All taken in 1976 from the window of my room at RAF Kai Tak.
