Re: Tartan ATR

That is a smart colour scheme- The red on the engines and the black on the lower fuselage really set it off- taken in cracking light as well.

Re: A couple from Fleetwood car show 21/4/19

Some great vehicles there in nice light- also like the little green Wolseley (C20) and the Ford Prefect police car (C11) on your Flickr page. See you managed to get shots of the Pennine Blackpool Express as well- I was on Kirkham Station for that.

Re: SPOTM February 2019 - Jumbo Jubilee - 50 years of the mighty Boeing 747

I’ve decided to go with this one purely for nostalgic reasons. This was the first Boeing 747 I ever saw, photographed with my first SLR camera, on my first ever trip abroad! PH-BUB “The Danube” at Amsterdam Schiphol in April 1971 (delivered to KLM on 4 March 1971). https://farm8.staticflickr.com/782...

OMG it's like going back in time! Just imagine if we could have photographed all those lovely aircraft back then, with the cameras of today, with limitless amounts of digital shots instead of film!
Absolutely brilliant, Andy.
