On that date, the MAN flight was operated by A6-EAA and not A6-EKR!

Emirates do use the A330 into LHR sometime, presumably when one of the triple sevens (200-or-300)
is in for maintenance or theres lower pax loads or something. They use the A330 inot LGW and inot BHX too, so it could be any of the four, though if Mr Tapperaell has found a spot to take shots like that at LHR i want to know about it, becasue it would really make for a road trip down to LHR a deffintae probability !

Yeah there's a few others as well. I seen one of an AF 320 that said LHR, but the a/c was behind a board saying Runway 24L, since when has LHR had a 24L??? Aint it 27L??

I recking it is Manchester. If you do a search for British Midland, you will see a few photo's by Mr Taperell that are actually Manchester and not Heathrow as the caption says.

Also, if you compare the background scenery to other Manchester shots, you will be able to spot trees and then hills in the background.

I'm from Manchester and from the hills in the background it certainly looks like MAN. And that is an A330....

If you look at the layout of Heathrow, unless the a/c was rotating VERY very early on 9R, there would be no chance for greenery and trees to be in the background. Also, for the shot to have been taken while the a/c was departing 27R, there would not be taxiways in the foreground...

Actually, A6-EKR went into MAN on the 27th Oct.
Therefore GF-A330 and others are probably right!



David/MAN: visits to MAN since 2000: 1

It looks at about the right place for a shit at Man as well - just near the pub is where the a/c shots can be taken - and just where that is touching down.

I cant think of anywhere else that has a good spot like that.
the only thing is, that EK55 is due to land at 11.30 Am, and that shot looks like its at the end of the day when the light is failing.

does anyone know what time the a/c arrived on the 26th october?

What a prat! I wrote that by accident.
Also, there isnt a lot of flap extended, so it must be departing...and would have therefore been taken from the aviation car park.

Another give away is the grass, its very green as its recently been layed alongside the new 2nd runway. And a final point, it doesn't always rain in Manchester! Today we had clear skies and sunshine, although it was ice cold!

Its MAN, its afternoon and its taken looking south over 24R from the aviation viewing park and looks like the a/c is departing. I shot a bmi 330 and Delta 777 a few weeks ago at the exact same spot, with the sun at about the same position and the 24R board beyond.

Certainly not Glasgow - you'd never catch an Emirates 330 there.
