With apologies to Grey Area..... A few outbounds. Still not up there yet but finally beginning to see the light. Regards, kev35

Thank you for the kind comments. BHX Local. For these I was at the far end of long stay 1. The courtesy bus takes you up to long stay 1 so get off at bus stop 6. I usually park my car a few rows further back alongside the armco barrier. Gives you a nice view of 15 departures and 33 arrivals. For the spotters you can easily read the registrations if both inbound and outbound aircraft from there, often without binoculars. Anyone staying there for any length of time be advised it's one hell of a trek should you have to answer a call of nature! Next.... a batch of Boeings. Regards, kev35

Beauties Kev! Especially the third Avro :D Can't wait for my own trip to BHX, just hope the weather will be better than it was last time I was there.

Three on the ground. The Lufthansa shot is very poor but can anyone tell me what the lights are beneath the nose? I've never seen them before and I have taken literally hundreds of shots of aircraft in that position. I think that's the lot for this time. Regards, kev35

It looks like those lights belong to the taxiway..perhaps ATC just testing the lights or helping the LH find it's way..

Forgot to mention. The language and stle used by one controller was very different to the norm. As an aircraft was flying from Honiley they asked if there were any ATC speed restrictions. This is the answer they got.... 'No speed restrictions, you can fly as fast as you like........ I'll bring you thundering over the airfield then a turn to bring you on to a six mile final.' The crew acknowledged the transmission but said they might need a bit longer than six miles for a high speed approach. Regards, kev35

Coanda. That's actually a trick of the light. The sun is the opposite side of the aircraft and the light illuminates the inboard aspects of the nacelles reflecting light back onto the fuselage and onto the outer aspect of the port inboard nacelle. Note how the outside of the port outer is darker? Regards, kev35
