Re: Stansted airport - a guide for visiting aviation enthusiasts

Andy, thanks for assembling and posting this guide. You must have spent an enormous amount of time and effort in putting it together. I hope to make use of it in the not to distant future when I am next down in the London area.

Manchester 27 October

Despite the weather, I took the chance and went out to runway 5 Right yesterday. It was a crisp morning with patchy frost which remained on the ground until about quarter to ten.

Not sure who has taken over, but nice to see Air...

Re: Kelowna British Columbia 25-9-2018 , drive by pics from a coach

Andy, that 727 N231FL got my interest as it looks airworthy but I see it was deregistered in 2017. What a shame. Thanks for posting.

Re: Vancouver 02-10-2018

Andy, your photos are a lot better that anything I've ever achieved from inside a terminal or aircraft. That runway shot at the end makes me wonder just how cold the airport surrounds must get in winter.

Very nice set there, Mike. A good assortment of aircraft, all well captured. I particularly like the 20 Year scheme on the EasyJet and the pair of Avanti's. Thanks for posting

Thanks, Euan. Martin, I think of the ASL 737 as a little ray of sunshine, that brightens up the day - even when it's dark and miserable.

Martin, thanks. We have had some beautiful sunny days this summer/early autumn. I am so pleased I went out last Saturday because this Saturday we look as though we are in for heavy rain. At least it will give me time to thin out my last couple of months worth of photographs and clear up some space o...
