Great lighting at LHR yesterday, love the winter sun Big grin

Heres one which might not make it to the database but I love this shot! I dont think the screeners will like it maybe a bit too dark for them and a bit too much motion. But its come out just as I saw it and im not changing it for them!!

Paul,

I [must] have an almost indentical picture of that blummin' Varig 777 to you. Only problem is that I have to wait two weeks for the Kodachrome to come back  Sad Owwww... I wanna digitial camera!!! Now, where's that D-30 topic...  Big grin

Seriously, I can't imagine how we could have both been around the end of 9L and missed each other. The last a/c I shot before I decided that the light was getting too iffy was 9V-SMU. Lovely light though, I agree - I shot a lot of film.

Andy,

I was parked on the road that isnt the perimeter road, you know the one that runs north south to the west of the airport. Im the one with the "strange" car Big grin

Paul,

I was parked on the northbound side verge of the dual carriageway just to the west of the perimeter road. I didn't notice a "strange" car (not that I understand what you mean by that!), or indeed anyone wafting big lenses at anything flying down final to 9L. So near and yet so far...

Now I have to post my K64 to Kodak and sit and wait...  Sad

Paul,

I have been trying to shoot VRA or VRB for a while now and keep getting foiled. I had food poisoning one weekend when I was planning to get them and then when I went the next weekend the sent PP-VQM instead. I just figured I was fated never to get a shot. I did manage to see it from Chris Sheldon's car as we drove back to T2 last weekend which I suppose will be the closest I ever get  Sad

Andy,

Well thats where I was too! Do you have a nice looking greyish coloured lens if so you were closer to the flightpath than me. As Gary says im the one with the grey hair although its really short at the mo so doesnt show up too much  Wink/being sarcastic The dodgy gearstick has gone to be replaced by this dodgy looking car


Cheers

Paul

Paul,

Good day wasn't it!!! I well pleased, as aside from the great light and the Varig, there was the ANA Pokemon 744, the special livery Gulf Air A330 and the Pause to Remember 757, none of which I'd done before.

And yes, that was the Canon 100-400 IS lens... Nice toy, if expensive!

I've done the slightly further away thing on a number of occasions before, and was deliberately trying to get some "in your face" front on shots to try out the extender Canon gave me for free when I bought the EOS-3 (100-400 + 1.4x extender = 560mm!), which is why I was nearer the lights than normal.

You might also have seen my pointing it straight up on a few occasions as there were simply loads of interesting contrails yesterday, wasn't there. However, I didn't see anyone else with any serious camera gear (I was looking). Shame... Maybe next time!

Andy

PS: Intruiging car!

Your right good selection of interesting aircraft first time for me with the Pokemon, Pause to Remember and the Dubai SP.

I was looking at the overflights too im at 750mm and have a couple of nice shots, US Air A330 an unknown A330 cant quite work out the reg but its ??-??? format possibly TAM ?? and a really nice Cargolux 744 which Im tempted to upload.

Were have to meet up next time.

Cheers

Paul

The car is great uses a 1.0ltr petrol with IMA battery assist so feels like a 1.6 when you drive. Best thing is filling up costs 23.00UKP then 500+miles later you fill up again!

I've seen the Varig 777 twice now, and both times it has been out of my reach. But hey, no worries, sometimes J and I feel we have to let you guys get a few pics of a new visitor in first before we go out and shoot it properly.... Big grin

Actually, I was only commenting to J on Sat. that I'm now more interested in being creative with the "regulars" than spending a long time seeking out the new and interesting stuff... ...so I guess I'll catch up with the Varig sometime...

Hi Chris

So you want to be creative with the regulars......I just hope Jason doesn't mind your advances Big grin

I think Paul's shot of the 777 is pretty nice.......he knows how to handle a digital Big grin

Hi, I saw the Varig pics in the database, yours, and was very impressed! That plane looks pretty good in Varig colors, although I will miss their MD-11s...  Crying
I saw the CO 767-400 at Gatwick too, nice one! Big grin

Well I have to admit to being surprised the 744 made it in first go round. I was waiting for a too dark or such like rejection, I must be in the good books Big grin Either that or im loosing faith in my own shots!

Chris I like to set a low standard to make your shots look even better Big grin

Gary,

I think your time in Singapore with the 'ladyboys' has clouded your judgement Big grin
