Manchester Antonov AN-124 plus others

Post by MikeG23 » Mon Jan 08, 2018 4:53 pm

Went to the airport this morning to catch the departure of the AN-124. It was doing a quick turnaround ferrying parts to Stockholm for a stranded Thomas Cook Airbus A330 G-OMYT. It came in at 10am and left around 1230 (due 1200). I missed the arrival as had other things to do, but got there about an hour before departure hence some other images from the morning as well. Freezing cold but the light was really good. All Ops today on 05L. Warning - there's a lot of images ! !
