Southern Air B744F at St Athan

Yes you saw that right, 2014 is going out kicking and screaming. Landing from Kentucky at 1030ish this morning was this (technically former) Southern Air Boeing 747SF N400SA. Here's the photos.

Also managed to snap the China Eastern from the bridge, bit of a murky one though as it often is in the Vale of Glamorgan!

Thanks Ben, it can't take off from the small runway at Saints and the parts are already listed for sale online... It's in for the chop!
