Great photos of an aircraft I'm yet to see. Any ideas on flight path?

I really want some decent photos of this, I only have photos from a Paris airshow but didn't have a wide enough lens so got the whole middle section :lol:

Superb photos of yours though!

Seen it at East Mids twice, once in the old colours and once in the new! :tongue:

The first time was incredible because I was stood on top of the grass bank at the DHL end and it took off and was no more than 50ft above my head as it went over me - I remember the noise getting louder and louder and thinking how much louder it was going to get!

By the way, that head on shot is a corker!!!!

I remember seeing it take off from EMA on a glorious late autumn morning, a few years ago. The air was gin-clear, and though it never deviated from the runway heading, we could still see the '225 nearly 15 minutes later! :cool:

Does it show itself on FR24? It might be worth a look this evening. :question:

Been there, done that...

Apologies for the quality. Shot at Farnborough using a shoulder-mounted full-size VHS camcorder 20-odd years ago and eventually copied to DVD (and then mangled by Photobucket....).

Many thanks for that, I'd forgotten just how jaw-dropping that display was. :shock: :clap: We've seen 737s shown off with less gusto than that!

(Of course I was very young at the time! :dummy: :lol: )


adamp89: absolutely correct on both counts! :smile:
