Wow, I am flattered, many thanks to you all for your kind words.
Unfortunately my recent house move has made me broadband-less for a few weeks, while I have had to jump through hoops to get ntl to install it...........It should be in Thursday, thankfully, and that is why I have been absent for a while............and of course missed this nice thread.
That BWIA photo almost didn't make it into flight. I went away to Manchester for a couple of days shooting and when I got home there was an email from Max saying he needed to hear from me ASAP to use the shot..........I phoned him on Saturday afternoon, and by Wednesday it was in.
The shot was the first time I have shot departures from there and was a bit of a gamble, but luckily the A340's awful departure performance allowed me to get some nice shots. Right place, right time
