Rare Aircraft At Your Airport - What To Do?

Sun Apr 08, 2001 3:15 am

Hi everyone,
I just came back from my local (DUB) and ha the best photo session yet (since I started at X-mas). I happened to snap a factory fresh, few hour old Aer Lingus A320

and then the icing on the cake for moi, a SAA 744 . It was on a maintainance visit to the FLS hangar around the back of the airport. I have one problem though I took about 8 shots but didn't the sun happen to pop behind a cloud for the duration of its landing and then as soon as it landed it came back out. I did though happen to take twoshots of it parked on the apron doing engine runs. One with a fence a quarter way up the shot which is not desirable but unavoidable, and a clean shot with no sun. I want to ask you if I were to upload them here when i get the shots back would you prefer to see the one with the fence and sun or the one with no fence and no sun

I say both.

These 3 photos I took of Lufthansa's inaugural flight to Denver. It was bad weather, cloudy, foggy and cold; but it was worth it since its an event.

I'll upload them to today.

Kind regards,
