Rare darts at Southend

Post by PorkScratching » Wed Apr 29, 2015 8:08 pm

A couple of Dart powered rarities photographed at Saarfend back in 2001:

The quality isn't brilliant due to them being taken on my first digital camera - a 1.2MP Fuji compact! I also photographed them with my film SLR, but haven't scanned them yet.

I'll take content like that over image quality any time! Never even seen an A3- frame.

Nice Photos!

I think the YS11 In your pictures caught fire when a 'stray firework' hit it....
Only the fuselage burnt...
Shame we don't go many of them around these days!!

Wonderful pictures, and only back in 2001 !!! I'd have dated them way before that , didn't even realise there had been a YS-11 in this country

Got any more?

Thanks for the comments. Shame about the firework! Marpleman I don't have any more I'm afraid - I'm not a regular at Southend, but having learned they were parked/stored I made sure I took a detour when I was in the area to get some shots, as others have said you don't photograph aircraft with A3 and 9U registrations very often! And I really wanted to make sure I had some photos of a YS-11 in my collection too.
