This section contains a selection of images of visiting aircraft from airports around the UK. For the most part, they are commercial, but almost all of them are either unusual types, wearing new or unique liveries, or first visits by an airline or airliner to a particular airport. So if you are out and about and see something unusual, please send in your photos. As most of the world now works with digital media, photos can be sent by e-mail to Please ensure that you provide details with any images, especially the relevant date, location, airline names and aircraft identity.
