Hope you had fun. ...Jump to post
I had this photo rejected for having part of the aircraft cut off... Does this make the photo rejectable? somtimes it good to close up on parts of the aircraft. for instance the nose.. I am putting this photo up for constructive critique to try and help me see it from other peoples point of view... ...Jump to post
There is something called the accessory drive gear box which is driven by the spinning of the engine. Normally mounted below the compressor section this turns a constant speed drive.

How many people on the forum actually have the JAR66 licence or the old LWTR licence? and how many people just know information in this much depth off the top of their head?

In the latest edition on Airliner World an article was talking about how the 7E7 would have a bleedless engine, it got me wondering, what is a bleed air valve?

Okay, may seem like a dumb question to some, On an aircraft, I often hear "the packs" referenced. I know they have something to do with the air conditioning system can anyone please explain to me why they are called packs, what they do and how they work <img src="/discussions/graphics/smile.gi...Jump to post
At Jetphotos they treat photography as a hobby and not as a professional skill. Maybe some of the photos leave something to be desired, but they arent SO bad that you dont wanna look at them. Check Air2Air over there, great photographer <img src="/discussions/graphics/smile.gif" ALT="Smile"> h...Jump to post
I got a few ideas, I will explain later
Yeah, I reckon that there will probably be 50 of each photo each from a different photographer hehe. I may have to try and get a camera by then.
I reckon that this will be the largest event that manchester has ever seen.
Great . I dont like Man Utd either.
Condolences to those who do
I cant wait for this litte event, its going to be a great occasion. If any one wants to come to <acronym title="Manchester - International (Ringway) (MAN / EGCC), United Kingdom">MAN</acronym> but they dont live around the airport and they dont have anywhere 2 stay. Then as I posted, me and some m8'...Jump to post
It opens at 07:30am, but the que to get in is going to be about
10 miles long so you wont get in till 09:30am. I would suggest going to another spot.
Yeah hehe, Hopefully I will have my camera by then :PJump to post
If they are, then lets hope it doesnt rain!!, All those cars and a muddy field wont help hehe, but then. It will give us something to laugh at inbetween landingsJump to post
Jason, I think only yu and Shaun are the only 1's crazy enough to WANT to sleep in a terminal hehe, so no worry about not getting a good peg hehe.
I on the otherhand will be camping :P I havnt been in a while, so I will just take my tent and some crisps and enjoy a night under the stars hehe
You dont really need the viewing area, /me thinks that its just because there is a cafe there that people go there, but you can just go a little further down, or even to the pub of 24R is in use as I posted. that makes the Viewing area not the best place then <img src="/discussions/graphics/sm...Jump to post
I will also be joining jason, for those with a car tho. We heard roumors from the viewing area that they will be charged £8 a car PLUS ENTRY FEE. IMO thats a rip off, especially when you can get to 06L for free, and even better for those that I know who can get airside!!!!. We were discussing taking...Jump to post
airliners.net got me into aviation The only problem now is that what has been said above: Its not only the pictures that make this site worth while, but just look at other large sites. http://www.webhostingtalk.com http://www.yaxay.com Now it maybe true that they dont use as much system resources as...Jump to post
We hope that its an italian team that get in the final. As the italians are massive footie fans so they will come in flocks.

If you want to get any pics, its at the storage area (Where it has spent most its life :/). May be a last chance before june to get some photos of it.

Thats a good thing as ATM, with the taxiway refurbishment, its the only place you can get close and it also means that in the afternoon <acronym title="Albenga (Villanova d'Albenga) (- Clemente Panero) (ALL / LIMG), Italy">ALL</acronym> traffic will pass DIRECTLY infront of the spotting area :P ...Jump to post
