Re: Voting pole November 2019 POTM competition

There's a problem with the poll in that only one option can be selected, rather than two. I'll wait for you to fix it before voting!

Re: Flickr flippin' useless this morning

I think an subscription extension for subscribers would be in order, although I'm not sure their cashflow would facilitate it. I've had issues uploading for the past two evenings, although I haven't tried today (been at a somewhat damp Stansted).

I noticed that too. Fixed now though.

There's been a marked improvement in the speed of the site since the move, which is very welcome.

I haven't tried uploading this morning, but I did receive a message when I was browsing to say that they upgrade was complete but some parts of the site may not work properly and they would be addressing them as soon as possible. Seems like they have carried out a massive engineering exercise and tr...

Great photos. Shame you couldn't get to see more of the attendees, but two Beech 99s hopefully made up for that.

Re: Aircraft Long gone put good memories.

That's a fabulous collection. The Syrian Caravelle is probably my favourite. I've never collected slides (I have more than enough of my own photos, which I'm constantly adding to), but I can see the attraction of doing so.

Some shots from Heathrow back in October 2013. Not that long ago, but some of these a/c certainly can't be seen now. Not many passenger A300s left in service, even in 2013: https://live.staticflickr.com/5501/10634400624_715fb67676_o.jpg Iran Air A300B4-605R by Nick Challoner , on Flickr https://live...

Re: Guernsey Airport 80's & 90's

Ooh, some really interesting a/c there, some of which I remember from that period. I love the older biz-jets - Sabreliners, Sterling Corvette and the Gulfstream II and III. And then there's Tom Walkinshaw's Starship, and it's not everyday you see a Mexican Aerostar!
