SPOTM 2021 calendar

Post by andygolfer » Sun Nov 08, 2020 8:00 pm

We admins have been discussing the 2021 topics for a while and this is what we have come up with, I hope you like the calendar - should be plenty for everybody there.

If the lockdowns persists and means topics such as the airshow one aren't feasible we will have a re-think close to the time of the relevant topic

January - ANY aircraft photographed in 2020 which has not won or been 2nd or 3rd in either photo comp, i.e. not already in the hall of fame. ( this was very popular and easy in 2020 but for Jan 2021 we have made it any aircraft rather than airliner to help offset the lockdown effects)

February - Iberian countries i.e. Portugese or Spanish registered airlines past and present

March - any civilian registered Boeing 767, it first flew in 1981 so let's celebrate 40 years of this workhorse of the world fleets

April - Civil registered corporate or government airliners

May - 'grounded - unlikely to ever fly again' - you can hardly ever say never unless it's a skip full of metal

June - Any Canadian registered aircraft

July - former soviet bloc aircraft which are based on a soviet bloc era design - let's see some old classics from the east!

August – Any UK registered helicopter, autogyro or other rotary winged type

September: Bae.146, another one that is 40 years old in 2021 - first flight was ‎3rd September 1981

October: an aircraft displaying at a 2021 airshow

November - An aircraft on a grass aerodrome

December - an all encompassing biz jet topic – 'any biz jet photographed in 2021' - that’s an easy one for biz jet fans

hope you like the list and please post and questions or comments here thank you

Nice selection, pity I haven't been out and active for years so will probably only manage 6 or 7 entries at best. Shame about December being 2021 photos of biz jets only as mine all date from the 1970s :)

Another great selction of subjects - thanks team!

With regards to January's comp, does the photograph have to have been entered in the 2020 comps or can it be a "first-timer" entry, if that makes sense?

Thanks
Ian

no Ian, it can be any 2020 photo as long as it hasn't been placed in either photo competition
