Well... It looks like Tom and I were among a few Key people at MAN today!

Without really knowing it at the time, a lot of my shots today have a common theme, and that theme basically is capturing the giants that inhabit our skies at angles rarely seen in the typical side on shots, that convey an impression of just how huge these aircraft really are. First are a few random shots from the day, then the heavies at the end (including a certain rather large Russian).

The first one by the way is my first ever shot of the JET2 146!

Enjoy!

This was also my first time seeing the AN-124. I have to say seeing that monstrous aircraft taxi right in front of me was just simply amazing. Thanks to Mark L for tipping us off about that one!

Anyway, I hope these shots made interesting viewing!

Fantastic shots Paul, must say I love the 'people' shots but my favourite has to be the 24th with the AN124 folliwing the 'Follow Me' car. Just a great angle showing the size comparison! :D

A very interesting selection, Paul. :)

You've even managed to capture the elusive HLXPAX absconding from his gainful employment in that shot of the BMI A330. :D:D:D

LANCE

Even i had to make a special dinner time visitation for a certain "BEAST" and well worth it it was to.

Just a shame that i was spotted at that time as i only stayed on that mound for about 2 minutes then went on taste the delights of a cheesburger with onions for lunch ;) ;)

The usual amount in used tenners will do the trick, Chris. ;)
