Re: Photographer(s) Feedback on the new site

It seems from my recent experience that images are being re-sized & compressed upon upload. I added 5 each set at 1024px on the longest side yet they were all interpolated to 1280px on longest side. It also seems the opportunity to remove the awful compression applied at upload has been missed i...

Thanks for the reply Mick. It would be good to receive an update as to how the developers get on with reducing the compression, if not removing it completely, in due course.

RE: MAN Runway Use?

Thanks Karl, very interesting.

Does the 380 use 05 R for departure? If it uses 05 R out of hours for landing I'm now wondering what it does for departure?

I guess this must all be down to taxi ways and the route to its stand.

Looking at tomorrows forecast they will be using 05 Right and Left. The early arrivals will come in on 05Right which is great for photography - then at sometime during the morning (perhaps 10am?) they will switch to 05 Left. The 380 will therefore land on 05 Left and will depart on 05 Left. Hope thi...
