RE: Air Blue Starting Birmingham

The config for the AirBlue 340's are 342Y, and also on a side note, since they became AirBlue planes, they seem to be on the ground more than in the air!

Trying Out Virgin's 'Little Red' MAN>LHR>MAN

31st March 2013 Hello! I happened to be on a day off on the 31st, so I thought, why not. Obviously being a day off, I had no plans to get up at a silly hour, so the 1st flight at 07:35 was out of the window. Booked myself on the VS3042 which was the 2nd flight on their schedule, arriving at <acronym...

RE: Using Different 'F' Values For Night Photos

Ok, thats a great help thanks, I usually shoot at F8 for night shots, but the long 30 sec exposure puts me off a bit. I don't want to shoot any higher than ISO 100 though.

Hi Airbuseric,
We used our contacts originally to reserve the exit seats on one row, but once on board, no-one else outside the group sat on any of the other exit seats, so we moved and all had a window each.
