We present a selection of images of visiting aircraft from airports around the UK. For the most part they’re commercial, but almost all are unusual types, wearing new or unique liveries, or first visits by an airline or airliner to a particular airport. If you see something out of the ordinary while on your travels, please send in your pictures. Photos can be sent by e-mail to or. Please ensure you provide details with the images, especially the date, location, airline names and aircraft identity.
