Hi everyone.  Here are a selection of shots I took on 2 separate days from the Runway Visitor park at Manchester Airport.  Not a very fancy setup, merely a kit lens, as well as the typical inconsistency of British weather as demonstrated.

 

20/4/2018

 

CS-TTS, Air Portugal

D-AIAH, Condor Flugdienst, now sporting standard Thomas Cook Group livery

An alternate angle:

Followed by Lufthansa's D-AIUA

EI-DLC, One of many Ryanair 738s

An attempted close-crop

EI-GJM, yet another Ryanair 738

Flybe Dash 8 Q400 in old livery

Another Flybe Q400, except G-ECOI formerly flew for Brussels Airlines, hence the colour scheme.

G-KKEV in Flybe's new livery

And the highlight of the day for me personally, TUI's G-OOBN making the turn off Runway 23R

Helvetic Airways Fokker 100.  Spot the captain waving.

Finnair E190LR

Another rarity: a Dornier Do-328JET

Closing off with a Dutch baby Boeing.

Lighting wasn't that great after the sun a few days before, but the proximity makes up for it.

 

OE-LDC, Austrian Airlines A319

Here's a rare one.  An ERJ-145LR owned by Pan Européene Air Service.  I'm assuming its for corporate charters.

The highlight of the day slowing down on Runway 23R.  PIA's AP-BGJ, B777-200ER

While the B777 takes an exit further down the runway, Easyjet's OE-IJA manages to slow down in time for the high-speed turn off nearer to the viewing spots.

While the PIA B777 lumbers along slowly

Mum and son

Jet2's G-JZHP.  Jet2 was apparently ranked as the best airline in the UK early in April.  A bit mind boggling to be honest...

Easyjet's G-EZRI  eyeing a departing Lufthansa Airbus sibling.

And a non-sharklet A320

The sole Speedbird I spotted that day.

A new one for me: B738 with split-scimitar winglets.

Close up of the scimitars.

Compared with the traditional B737NG winglets.
