Post by andygolfer » Thu Sep 17, 2020 8:28 am

This is the SPOTM (Special Photo Of The Month) competition for September 2020 and the subject is 'any Boeing 747 variant registered in the UK (i.e. G-****) and being operated by a British airline or company at the time of the photo' thus marking the end of the operation of these amazing aircraft by British operators :cry: :cry:

The subject of your entry should be a photo of one or more Boeing 747 variant registered and operated in the UK, it must be airline or VIP operated or a retired example of the same

2. The photo may have been taken on any date, it does not have to be taken in the month of the competition

3. The image can be photo-shopped to some extent, levels changes, cropping, sharpening etc. are all acceptable. The photograph must retain it’s initial subject though, don’t make it something it’s not. HDR images are not acceptable. If you are unsure, please PM a moderator.

4. The competition will remain open until 23.59 (UK time) on the 7th October 2020- please note new extended closing date to enable anyone with a last minute entry some breathing space.

5. Voting will be conducted by a poll open to all the membership shortly after the closure of the competition.

6. 'Rule 6...' There's no rule 6 Bruce'

7. The decision of the moderating team is final.

8. All images must be posted in line with the usual CA posting rules (size etc.), please read them if you're not sure how to post.

9. The rules may be subject to change, and these will be posted on this thread.

11. Do not comment on other member's photos.

12. A brief description of where and when the image was taken would be nice too.

here's mine, that classic look! My favourite of the retro schemes G-BYGC in BOAC colours in September last year. Sad to think I won't ever see those glorious colours again
