Nice capture, and a pleasing colour scheme too. I don’t recall ever seeing one.

Re: The UK Airshow Review Podcast

I think it also felt a bit strange hearing the voice of someone like Tommy - who i've had pretty heated disagreements with in the burning cauldron of 'Off Topic' yet I like to think that on the fence line we could have a reasonable chat and go home at the end of the day feeling like airshow-mates. ...

Re: Manchester airport development

Interesting.. Where do you get the old maps from ?

I tend to use the ones from National library of Scotland when i want to kill some time looking at how places have developed.
