Manchester - cold, wet and miserable

Post by MikeG23 » Wed Nov 22, 2017 8:06 am

The E-3D Sentry was due to leave Mcr yesterday at 1400 having had a new paint job so I decided that I'd go along to grab a few shots. Arrived in plenty of time despite the freezing cold wind and forecast of rain. All I got was frozen, wet and disappointed as it was a no show, but I did get these instead.

Well, I think you did well in the weather conditions. Nice to see an Etihad B787.
Thanks for posting.
