Well myself and Jon (BHXlocal) went upto BHX today - weather reports were mixed but we were expecting an overcast day mostly with some mist apparently!

Fortunatley though a large gap appeared in the cloud producing some beutiful golden light - so here's some of my shots from today, there's only about 12 here but I took closer to over 100! :D

Enjoy! :)

excellent pictures future pilot. I like them all especially the FCA757 and Air India close up. I really must get broadband for viewing threads like these (hint hint dad :D )

Absolutely superb mate, love seeing your shots!

On a slightly related note, what did you ever do with your shots taken at DUB in July?

Beautiful shots!! Nice to see an old friend in there, and the AI close up looks good. I like the way they paint around the windows in their aircraft, looks very ornate.

Thanks for all the replies :D

Tom, re: the DUB shots they came out OK but not great so never uploaded to JP.net although I may try again. I just never got round to uploading them here
