Mfd 1995. Del 02/95. "Goslar". My very first aircraft photo taken in Germany. I had arrived at the spotting deck at Hamburg about 5 mins prior to taking this shot. I was in a true state of shock, never before had I had the oppourtunity to be at such close quarters to so many great European shorthaul aircraft (especially German ones!). I was keen to conserve film (only went equipped with 6 rolls for as many hours) but when I saw this this shot ememerge I couldn't help myself. Granted the light could have been better, but I really do like this shot, and not only for the sentimental reasons!
