Airline of the week this week is Continental. Let's try and keep contributions down to one or two shots each, so we can really pick our best this week!

I know there were a few suggestions in favour of BA World Tails. My only reason for not taking that on this week is that i didn't know how many people would have pictures of them (i know my only shots are pre-digital). Any thoughts on this?

Remember, for future weeks we need to think of airlines that people are likely to have seen across the continents... so regional LoCos and short lived airlines aren't really practical

Hmm i think some airlines will suit some more than others,and also pre-digital,but I suppose just wait & see how many respsonses to each topic appear.

Well those BA world tails were most certainly around after people started using digital cameras, and even if you have good old fashioned film originated stuff, what's wrong with making it 'digital' i.e scanning it ?

Anyhow, here's a couple of my Continental shots, including a passsing Easyjet too...

Perhaps not the best quality or most interesting motive, but got some good memories from this pic and that's what matters most.

This one is more interesting motive wise.

Great pics all. Anyone got any old-skool pics, circa DC-10 era? Or any more good short-haul pics?
