Lovely - I think we have a Cessna floatplane in Loch Lomond and that's about it.

my dream is to become a pilot, and i would really want to work for saudi arabian airlines
1Colin Hunter (10 November 2006 - 03:55 CET)
Aha yes looking good Tony. Nice early morning light. well done.
1Martin Krupka (7 November 2006 - 00:26 CET)
Oh yes, another 767 for Flyglobespan. I'm looking forward to seeing it here in Scotland soon.
2Colin Hunter (7 November 2006 - 00:35 CET)
Oh yes that would be a very long delivery flight Auckland to Orlando non stop. Hope she
serves you well in Scotland.

Nice shot Colin. Is there a beach on the other side of that fence?
2Colin (7 November 2006 - 00:27 CET)
A very muddy one as that tide goes out further. In the far off distance below the trees
there would be some sandy beach. The runway is on reclaimed land.

I remember the last time I saw one of these. I'm sure the earth moved. Well maybe not but
it was certainly loud!

hahahahaha hehehehehe this pic is classic
1Petr Popel (27 October 2006 - 13:15 CET)
A nice shot Martin , last week I saw two these planes at Cork.
2Martin Krupka (27 October 2006 - 14:13 CET)
I was lucky with this picture. At EDI you can take a shot of cargo plane only in late
evening during summer and this one was taken at 6PM in May last year. After that I have
never had the same luck again. I hope they will not retire soon because they make
Edinburgh airport traffic more interesting.
3Alistair Bridges (28 October 2006 - 00:28 CET)
I liked the shot too - good prop blur.We don't get Electras at Glasgow.
4Kevin (1 November 2006 - 14:13 CET)
I hope the Electras dont retire aswell, they leave their oily trail as they whistle 700
feet over my house through the night and dawn, last night there were two Atlantic
Electras, a Safair Herc, and Exin AN26b and an old Friend Ship parked at EDI's freight
terminal, RETRO HEAVEN bring on the Props!

Tony - flew these out of the old RAF Turnhouse and a series of ATC camps throughout the
UK, in the 70's - have thrown up in them, after barrel rolls, near the Forth Bridge -
those were the days! (reminds me - must dig out my old ATC Flying Log - Varsity, Hastings
- Oh God , I'm sounding like my grandafther.

Is this operating from a grass strip ? Says a lot for the undercarriage - must have been
quite a sight. Alistair
2Martin Krupka (24 September 2006 - 10:34 CET)
Yes, this airplane was operating from grass strip. Length of the runway was pretty short-
1100m and temperature that day was around 30 degrees Celsius, which are not ideal
conditions for this training jet. It was something you don't see every day.
1Tony Marlow (20 September 2006 - 18:07 CET)
Great shot there, Alistair. You caught a unique moment. Welcome aboard!
