Had a great holiday, everything went good.

We got MYT's A320 KKAZ both ways. KKAZ was a nice clean aircraft. We departed on time from NCL and about 15 minutes early from Mahon. I might do a full report over the next week; in the mean time here are some photos.

Nice shots there. The line up of EZY and BA is particularly good.

Nice shots mate. :)

As regards to the flaps been set during pushback this wouldn't have occured. The pushback would have been fully completed by this stage (as you can actually see on the photo), parking brake would have been set, and then Flap would then have been selected (looks like Config 3 in this case).

Good. Mahon seams such a simple airport, total different to Palma.

Superb shots, glad you had a great time :).

Am I right in thinking that its normally G-SUEW based at NCL? If so you were lucky to get G-KKAZ!

Menorca is a very nice place, I would love to go back. Where on the Island did you stay? We stayed in Cala Galdana.

Some great photos there; I've never seen flight refuelling tankers with the airport name on the side. They're usually the refuelling co. ie. Air BP or Jet etc
