Hey all,

Coventry Airport is pretty quiet of late, but we do still get some 737 ops with West Atlantic Cargo 737-300Fs and -400Fs coming in for maintenance or parking.

Firstly, West Atlantic B734F G-JMCY arriving from Bastia on the morning of Saturday 4th for some maintenance..

Some great shots there but particularly the compsosition in No 2 achieves the right amount of cropping and is super sharp :clap:
