Post by andygolfer » Tue Jan 03, 2017 3:52 pm

This is the SPOTM (Special Photo Of The Month) competition for January 2017 and the subject is 'British Airways' – any aircraft in British Airways livery.

The subject of your entry should be a photo of one or more civil registered airliners in British Airways livery, the aircraft subject(s) must be registered as a civilian operated aircraft (or retired as such) when the photograph was taken.

2. The photo may have been taken on any date, it does not have to be taken in the month of the competition

3. The image can be photo-shopped to some extent, levels changes, cropping, sharpening etc. are all acceptable. The photograph must retain it’s initial subject though, don’t make it something it’s not. HDR images are not acceptable. If you are unsure, please PM a moderator.

4. The competition will remain open until 23.59 (UK time) on the 1st February 2017, to enable anyone with a last minute entry some breathing space.

5. Voting will be conducted by a poll open to all the membership shortly after the closure of the competition.

6. The decision of the moderating team is final.

7. All images must be posted in line with the usual CA posting rules (size etc.), please read them if you're not sure how to post.

8. The rules may be subject to change, and these will be posted on this thread.

9. Please also embed the images and not links to images, if you're not sure how to do it then shout up and someone will sort it out. It is permissible to change your entry before the closing date.

10. Do not comment on other member's photos.

11. A brief description of where and when the image was taken would be nice too.

If you have any questions please PM me

Good luck everyone.

well I deliberated for ages. I had a decent picture of a Concorde, a decent picture of a B.747 and a decentpicture of an A.380, then I thought - lets go for all 3 in one, 3 British Airways classics all in the same photo!

taken at Heathrow in February 2015...

I think this might be the only BA liveried airliner I've ever photographed - G-DOCB donated by BA to Cranfield University for research and training. Taken at Cranfield Festival of Flight on 17/09/16.
