Quiet a few interesting and unusual visitors to Doncaster Airport this month. Here's a few of the highlights:

IL-62, second visit in the month on the 30th October (and fourth visit of the year)


and here it is parked up on stand, 25th October

I missed the arrival (on a Sunday no less!) of the Silkway Il-76 on the 29th October

Air Atlanta Icelandic's 747 TF-AMP has been in a couple of times over the month, here on the 23rd October

and again on the 15th October

and again on the 2nd October

Sprint Air's ATR72 SP-SPE popped in in some bright autumn evening light on the 15th October

On the 2nd October I managed to catch the brightly coloured Air Alliance Air Ambulance taxiing on to the stand

Thanks for looking, Lee.

very nice Lee, spoilt again at Doncaster this month.

As nick said the '62 landing is excellent.

That Saudi 747 could do with a tidy up, looks like it's seen much better days

thanks for posting them

I think the Saudi 747 is in the Air Livery hangar at Manchester having a paint job.

Great to see former Soviet types still coming to these shores.
