The Boronco has a slight blue cast which can be corrected with an editing program, alternatively shoot R...

The land of Cultural Learning's,October 2008 a wee bit late!

Hi, A bit late I know but as we were playing Kazakhstan today, it was a good opportunity to post them. I was fortunate enough to visit for work, which just happened to include a ramp tour by bus. All these were shot through a tinted window in a very bumpy bus. Present was nearly the complete transpo...

Re: Kish - Iran Air Show

Hi Martin,

I think you'll find no airshow this year, it's every other year normally.

The best guy to contact is Shary from the Iranian spotters group. I wouldn't bother with the Embassy, Shary knows the places to go or sites to see.

Re: A380 OTT

Hi,

Try here and follow the instructions, the view in google earth is better.

http://www.openatc.com/

for aircraft details click on 'list current flights' top RH corner.

and bare in mind the slight delay, so an A380 showing over London would be over Bristol in about 15-20 mins or so.

Re: Classic 737 at LHR?

Can confirm the only regular 737-200 now is YU-ANP operating for JAT, not the most inspiring of colour schemes. Although its not been so common in the last week.

What is possibly the top visitor of 2008 recently departed.

A nice vantage point but useless when looking directly into the sun. The one day I wanted it to be cloudy, never mind.
