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.
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
Thomas Cook A321
Helvetic Airways Fokker 100. Spot the captain waving.
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.
That's all folks! Thanks for viewing!
