BHX 12th November 2019 - Samaritans Purse DC8 N782SP

With such a rare visitor overnighting at Birmingham Airport whilst en-route back to the USA we made a quick run down to see the Samaritans Purse DC8 N782SP,

A nice bonus of West Atlantic's B737-300 Freighter G-JMCL being parked in a good spot!

MAN 28th October 2019 - Etihad B787-9 A6-BND

Another chance to try and catch a shot of the Etihad B787-9 A6-BND in Manchester City colours, sadly the sun had different ideas ..... whilst it flew all the way down the approach in the sunshine the cloud blocked it out just as it got level with me!!
At least this shot will do until another opportunity arises!!
