Ruslan around*..

Post by ursa_major »

Images from the past 2 days:

Arriving in misty conditions just as the sun dipped behind the fog bank on Friday 11th - images shot ISO400:

Nice 'streamers' from the flaps
Image

How much tyre smoke? The light was terrible for this one, almost directly into what light there was and the mist was really rising across the airfield.
Image

Much better weather & light for departure Saturday 12th - images shot ISO100:

Big b***er innit?
Image

Over the hump and airborne
Image

On it's way

Good to meet up with Gary P & Andy again this morning.

(* I know this is a civ, but it's on a mil freight charter. As it's not an airliner, and there's no 'civ freight' section, and it's operating out of an RAF base for the RAF, here will have to do!)

Great pictures, I can see now where Boeing/Rolls Royce got the idea from for the engine reverser sleeves on the new 787 Dreamliner! lol :wink:
