I'm just after a bit of advice if anyone can help on this one. I'm flying from Blackpool to Malaga in a few weeks and want to select my seat so I can try and get some nice photo's on take off. I'll be flying with Jet2.com on one of their 737-33A's, G-CELJ seems to operate most of the flights. Fingers crossed for a sunny morning departing on runway 28. I want to try and get a shot of the engine/wing with Blackpool Tower in the backbround as we climb out over the beach. The big question is, which seat to choose. I need an 'F' seat to give me a window on the starboard side. Rows 7/8 are already booked so that leaves row 6 or 9. Which one should I go for, seat 6F or 9F? Will row 9 have too much wing in it or is row 6 too far forward?
Any advice would be appreciated.
Equipment: 2x Canon EOS 50D; Sigma 10-20 EX DC HSM, 50-500 EX APO DG, Canon 24-105 f/4 L, Speedlite 430EX

I have no idea what the config of Jet2 737's are but most 737-300 have a window missing at row 6-7-8 so I would call and ask.
This caught me out once flying across the Rockies with UA, was quite excited by a daylight flight with a forward window seat, only to discover that there was no window!
If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!
