NHS Spitfire and DHC Beaver at Cumbernauld Airport

As part of the great north tour, the Spitfire and Beaver used Cumbernauld Airport as a base. As the weather was great this seemed like too good an opportunity to miss,so off to sunny Cumbernauld for me. Very limited view from both of my chosen locations, but nice passes and rolls before landing and ...

Re: A400M off Dover

Yep, still patroling at c.500ft. Just heard it confirmed on LBC that this is regarding the small boats.
Photo opportunity for Preti Patel. Odious woman that she is.

Re: President Trump

I'm sure he's a burger and fries type of President, although thats probably part of his charm( I use the term very loosely) to attract votes. Almost more laughable are his denials of enquiring on the process for additional presidents to be added to Mt Rushmore, which he then supports the case with t...

Re: An-225 and Qatar Emiri C-17 Prestwick 02/08/20

Thanks for the kind comments, it was a gravity defying sight to behold! Talking to the airport ploice at Glasgow last week they estimated 8,000 people attended Prestwick! Certainly felt like it trying to negotiate the traffic! All good fun!.

Looks like a fantastic tour, really interesting set and commentary. I never realised the YF-23 was so weird looking!

An-225 and Qatar Emiri C-17 Prestwick 02/08/20

Hugely understimated the interest in the An-225's pit stop at Prestwick today,I've never seen the place so stacked. The mound was probably not the best to get shots due to the volume of people, but a great sight nonetheless, heres a wee selection. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50181159468_3bc4...

Re: An-225 (and others) at Prestwick 2 Aug 2020

Have to agree, never seen the place so busy, even when there's been an air show on, quite a spectacle though and nicely caught. I was at the mound initally and photography was, shall we say challenging. Great wee day though.

Nice set but looks like a Polaris, not a Poseidon. ;)
You are of course correct. Don't know what I was thinking, if at all, Photo is even titled Polaris.

It was late at night etc, etc...

I seem to have missed most of the recent military visitors into Glasgow recently, so rather pleased to have had the camera handy when this passed through earlier. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50097671836_28d2e1df8a_b.jpg ZP801 by Brian Macdonald , on Flickr https://live.staticflickr.com/65535...
