Manchester - Trident 3 - G-AWZK

I reckon this counts as nostalgia and slowly heading to be a wreck if no-one does anything to maintain it better.

A visit to Manchester 22/8/17

Manchester 18-10-16 - Wet and very very cold

I knew it was going to rain this afternoon, which is why I went so that I could get some decent spray shots. What I hadn't bargained for was a driving wind and freezing cold - remind me not to do that again ! ! ! https://c8.staticflickr.com/9/8571/29776361103_4f0b7137f4_b.jpg 20161018-DF1A6773.jpg b...

A sunny Manchester afternoon

After quite a long time away from the Airport the bright sunshine and clear air were sufficient to prompt a return,, this time to Runway 2 (05R) https://c2.staticflickr.com/9/8313/30068679705_784167219c_b.jpg 20161002-8W9A0899.jpg by Mike Grundy , on Flickr https://c2.staticflickr.com/6/5829/3006871...
