Had a job in Warrington so, along with Mr. E-GPK and a non member, we spent most of the day at MAN, then off to Liverpool (to follow) weather/lighting a bit poor in the morning, but, brightened up not bad in the afternoon, the wind, however, was mental all day with numerous go-arounds being performed,and some way dodgy landings too!!:

"Challenging" is indeed very apt....credit to some great piloting skills in getting them on the deck(without scraped wings)

My guess is that this year is the last chance you will get to fly on a B747SP. They are now 30 years old and are about to be replaced.

Don't waste the opportunity - otherwise you will live to regret it!

Hi Scott,
I had heard that you had been on you're travels
Like the Air Transat, seems to catch the eye for some reason
