Qatar Airways took delivery of the first (production) one last week.

Fingers crossed we'll get a look at it over here soon.

I think it might be a bit gusty up in the Western Isles.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Strange that they wouldn't have tried to turn away from the mountains for a crash landing. No distress call either, perhaps a complete failure of all communication & control sytems?

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Pilot incapacitation seems to be the hot topic on flight forums.

Very sad incident especially with all the exchange students on there.

Very sad too that sick jokes are in evidence already.

Sick jokes already - what if it was one of their loved ones/friends who died.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Getting back onto the plane spotting side..

Just bought a Sony hx400v that I was offered at a cheap price so with the bike and airshow season in full swing hopefully get some decent shots especially with both Duxford and Shuttleworth being within 30 minutes on the bike.
