I was supposed to be flying from there this very afternoon but scrubbed as the weather was so patchy across E Anglia. Next attempt Saturday. For the next few weeks I am based there. Do come up and make yourself known if you see me. Moggy

Hi there Moggy, Yes was a strange afternoon, Started nice and sunny with light winds then the clouds came over and the wind got up! I started over on the approach to 22 at stansted got fed up with only snapping EasyJets and Ryanairs so thought I would pop up the the old faithfull! Always manage to have a chat to someone up there everyones always friendly! Today was the pilot of the Pitts (G-CUPP) who took 45mins to dig it out the back of the hangar and another 15 to fuel her only to be called into work! LOL! Will keep an eye out for you! I always hover around my car a silver ford focus estate, Good luck for Saturday! off to the Air-Britain fly-in at North Weald?? All the best!! Si,

The only thing that sounds nicer than a big round engine is a big V-12 regardles of make.

Hi there Jamie, I took those photos with a Canon EOS 600D with the standard 18-55mm Lens, Have just bought a sigma 70-300mm APO DG Lens for it, Loving the Carvair picture on your posting! I helped find with some info for a book that was published a couple of years ago in American called The ALT-98 Carvair By William Patrick Dean, My Ex-Manager Terry Leighton worked on them at Southend and Stansted and kept hold of some photos that were taken whilst they were being built and maintained, The author put our names in the book as a thank you for sending the photos and e-mails to him in the states,
