Had an hour to kill at Exeter airport this afternoon, before flying back to Jersey. Though Aerobuses are not my thing I took the opportunity to practice some slow shutter speeds, and panning.

It was not an ideal place to do this, as the viewing area is glass enclosed and plays havoc with the auto-focus. Anyhow these are the best of a poor attempt.

Nice shots - I myself havn't seen G-STRI with the smaller Flybe titles yet, why the rest of their 737s have a larger logo upfront and not that one is beyond me.

Perhaps it might be wiser in future though to resize the photos to 600x400 so the compression does not have to be this high. Most people prefer a smaller pic of high quality than a huge pic of medium quality, especially when the photos are as good as the last FlyBE one!

The 748 is interesting too. Does it still fly?

the 742 is in storage and i think EAL have just got rid of it any ideas why there is an Channel express. Nice pictures there btw.

Nice pics, VP-CGL is a particularly good catch as its a pretty new reg. I'm sure that excites you tremendously!

In answer to the question the 748 does still fly I believe for Emerald (James, 748 as in HS748, not mistyped 747 ;) )

It is doing Royal Mail flights EXT-EMA five nights a week.

EXT-STN-BOH-JER-EXT at present. The worst looking one of the fleet there G-SOEI :dev2:

The easy A319 was a BRS Divert I presume?

Yep, I took time out last night to re-post them from photobucket.
