Re: SPOTM August 2018 De Havilland

DH106 Comet Dan-Air at Gatwick. About the early 80's.

Used to sit on the wooden fence at the side of the A23 between the terminal and the Beehive. Memories.

Nice to see some pics from a less reported field.
The Swiss must have been a surprise to see. Doing some heli-lifting ?

Cracking shots on all three sets, Nick.
Nice to see a clear shot of the MRJ. (Never flew on Tuesday).
The Wings ATR72 must have been a nice surprise.
Well done.

Re: Newcastle - Friday 27/07/2018

Nice to see Newcastle being reported.
My first visit was back in 1984 and there was a roof viewing area, giving pretty good views.
My second visit, in 1997, it was gone !

Taken at the Prague Technical Museum in 2003.

It is an Etrich Taube Limusina
Two for the price of one... a Pou-du-Ciel in the background.

Re: Beechcraft Skipper Kemble 08/08/2015

The Beech 77 is a rare beast here, but easily confused with the PA-38 Tomahawk.
I suggest G-BPPF, based at Kemble.

Re: Farnborough 17-7-18

No problem with the size, but thanks for suggesting. Mine tend to average 1024 x 678. I use both MS Edge and IE11. It only seems to effect IE11 ...hey ho ! By my reckoning, looking at Farnborough Spotters website, already at least 10 frames have departed before the weekend. Thanks for the favourable...

Farnborough 17-7-18

Farnborough Tuesday. Funny old weather. Quite overcast, sometimes bright, sometimes dark clouds. Hot with a breeze. For me, Farnborough has always been about seeing latest types, especially airliner and commuter aircraft. We all know, that nowdays, several interesting aircraft will leave before the ...

Yeovilton July 7 2018

A scorching hot day, another venue that I like. Difficult at times with light for flying shots. Most of these pictures will be pseudo military, by nature of the venue. A highlight for me was this MS760 Paris biz / liason aircraft, a rare beast. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/921/42397506435_e8d71a7c...

Re: London City, panning attempts......

You have done well there.
From the shadows, I guess the shots were afternoon, early evening.
I prefer Northside, but it can be a pain with the sun morning, midday.

Some of those wrecks have been there for years. So, the black & white G-LUND makes for an interesting picture. Well done. Those wrecks could make for a caption competition.
