MAN 3rd October 2020 - Blue Islands ATR42 G-ISLH

 Blue Islands operated their ATR42 G-ISLH this morning instead of the usual ATR72, seen here taxiing out and departing a very wet and murky Manchester.

Cornwall 26th & 27th September 2020

 A long weekend away with my Wife down in the South West allowed a couple of new airports to be added to my log book, Our route took us past Newquay and Lands End with a few photos grabbed along the way.

Newquay is not good for the photographers as there are no spots that allow close up views of the stored airliners sadly, the following were just record shots taken from the fenceline on the Saturday evening.

A pair of Interjet A320 Neos are currently stored along with a trio of Thomas Cook A330's, a trio of Alitalia A321's and a Love Fly (Russia) B737-800.

Over on the museum side was the ex Qinetiq BAC1-11 ZH763, a blast from the past for me having first logged this frame as G-BGKE at Manchester back in the mid eighties!

The Sunday morning saw us visiting Lands End and we made a quick call at the airport (incidentally this is closed on a Sunday!) while passing, a pair of Isles of Scilly Skybus Twin Otters were parked outside.
