First Photo Nearest Your Place Of Birth...

Fri Jul 04, 2003 1:55 pm

Hello all,

I'm getting kind of desperate for an original topic - so here goes - show us your first photo on Airliners.net which was shot closest to the place you entered this crazy world...

Not a difficult request - I would like to see the earliest Airliners.net photo you have captured - closest to your place of birth....

Maybe I have too much time on my hands - thank God or the Devil if I do !!

Here is mine - captured 3 years ago with my old 1mp digital Olympus.

The above photo is old - kinda out of date by today's Airliners.net standards...

Will you show me your's?

Nearest to my home (4 km's) is a heliport, but seldom anything lands there. This is my only picture in the database from that spot:

Well any shot from LHR would do for me, as I was born in Richmond on the flightpath - might explain a lot - a very early memory is my mother grabbing me and running out the house as it appeared a TU-104 was about to crash on us (it didn't - but I remember the noise of my mother screaming and the aircraft at full throttle - screwed up approach I guess).

Since then I've lived in various places in Canada and Ireland but now in Southampton I've nearly got back to where I started!

Cheers,

Colin

Well, I was born in Reading, Berkshire so closest would be Blackbush (!) but closest main airport would have been Heathrow.

Closest I can get is AMS which is about 10km from where I was born, but I don't have any pics from there on A.net, so the closest is LHR Big grin

Hammersmith so LHR or LCY but grew up in Putney right under the flight path and now under it a bit closer to LHR!

AMS for me too, as I was born in just about the same place as Dan  Smile

so Amsterdam Schiphol Airport would be the closest airport. But I do have a pic closer to my birthplace on A.net:

I was born near St. Pancras station London and I guess this is the nearest spot to there on the database.

Lovely picture, well done Thorbjorn!

I was born in Brussels, 25km from BRU.

Here is the pic my first one on the database.

Hi All

Ben, did you bring the 'brick' with you from Reading to Gatwick?

Just kidding, you are probably taller than me  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
