Manchester - Voyager & Friends

A quick dash down this evening after hearing the recent Voyager visitor was on its way along with possibly the LOT Dreamliner that was in for a new windscreen. The 787 didn't leave, but the Voyager did in the fading light.

I also picked up a few civvies against what was a pretty decent sunset.

I saw a message that it'd been given clearance to start about 2230ish, no idea what time it got off. The Voyager was about 2115, hence the fading light. I thought the LOT 787 was going to go just after the Voyager but it they were just pushing her back to the main apron so they could get another jet into Monarch.

It finally went out just after 11pm. It was almost as if they were waiting for it to go totally dark!
