Yesterday we went spotting to Manchester. The weather was overcast but mainly dry. It was a good spotting day with some good baggings.

Fantastic shots! A great job, Comet. :D :D

Wow a huge amount of great shots Comet, and you sure bagged some interesting things.

Im going to be really pedantic and say "The first BA is a 146-200 and not an ARJ"

I profusely apologise :D

In what way, LFC? :confused:

Some nice pictures there, Comet. But please tell me you saw the Air Italy B757 working for MyTravel!!!

I was going to PM you about it, but you've turned them off...... :(

Aint that a stupid thing to say LFC??
Things happen i.e an aircraft change last minute, due to a technical prob, or maybe they wanted to bump up the capacity by puting the SP on the route for that paticular day.
So i dont see how Grey was proved wrong, all he said was usually Syrian operate an A320, its up to Syrian what they want to run ;)

Thanks for the comments :D

Yes Grey, I did see the Air Italy but it was too distant to be able to get a photo so I had to make do with just getting that one on video. The SP was a true catch, I was totally chuffed when I saw that beauty landing! My Mum had offered to buy me a flight on it for my birthday but we couldn't between LHR and MAN.

Sorry for the mistake about the BAe 146, I couldn't see the reg clearly to be able to check it up proeprly so I just made a guess.

And I will be going to BHX on 4th September and flying from there on morning of 5th September, so I hope the weather will be decent and let me get a few hours in because I won't get there until the afternoon (useless train timetable and no train from Scarborough until 09:26 on a Sunday instead of 06:33 like it is midweek.) I don't know what I hope to see in BHX because I've only done Tuesday afternoons there before.
