Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Just had TF-AAL come over us quite low (low enough to see it was a 747). It looks like it's been doing some Doncaster to Beijing runs the last few days. It's nice to see and hear something other than the air ambulance for a change.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

RAF A400M Atlas is supporting channel border force ops from today.

Might as well use them for something if there's nowt to shift.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

So the RAF has a Shadow R1 spy plane circling five miles above our heads, meanwhile a large helicopter that isn’t showing up on the planefinder app is circling much, much lower. Freaky biscuits.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

A bad Photoshop? The engines don’t look evenly spaced at all. Or is that a trick of perspective?

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Thought I'd share a few pics of these BA 747's on my last trip to Kemble.
Thankfully, G-CIVB will be preserved and escapes being turned into saucepans and pepsi cans.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

747's have been making low and slow passes over Cardiff as they head to the junkers.

Re: Plane Spotters Corner

Really depressing to see the end is near for the passenger 747's.


Luckily my local airport East Midlands has quite a few of the cargo 747s that regularly come in.
