4 from this morning, exceptional light so I grabbed these before going off to gather some info for my forthcoming meeting with the police and MAG re spotting facilities (wish me luck!), probably my last outing of 2017....

and a couple of Cargolux B.747-8F LX-VCH departing, this didn't bank as much unfortunately.

thanks Mark, meeting is in 3 weeks but I was gathering info and taking pics in the Belmer road area with one of my team members to prepare ideas today so we can present some proposals at the meeting.

Well done Andy! Superb shots there :clap: :clap:

They are all good but if I had to pick one I'd actually say the third shot, the Cargolux 747 with the wheels retracting, very good angle as well :)

thanks James I was rather surprised how well that first Cargolux came out as it was about 3km away but he climbed a bit too quickly and didn't bank as much as the Panalpina so I didn't get a topside.

The -8Fs don't bank as steep as the 400Fs generally so I think I will need to go back to my previous spot to get better shots of those. I think I've spotted somewhere on a footpath in between which might be better too. :)
