Enjoy your day, guys.

I'm stuck in the UAE due to unexpected reasons and have had to cancel my trip. Shame, as I was quite looking forward to it.

Glad you all had a good day and so disappointed that I couldn't make the flight itself. My Mr's was at work today and I couldn't get any childcare, although I did manage to drag the kids along to see G-CIVI arriving into NCL.

I also got a couple of pics of it departing, from my house, although its at about 3500ft but for those of you who my friends on facebook, I've tagged you

enjoyable trip today and enjoyed some good company.

respect to the cabin crew, it was like a supermarket sweep for them, they managed to serve a full PAX on the 747 during a flight which lasted 45 mins

Take off weight today was 270 tons compared with 380 tons for a flight to bangkok, 110 tons lighter wow, the 747's take off roll was quite incredible, and made the trip totally worthwhile.

I didn't really join in with the A.Net festivities to a great extent, but nice to meet EZYAirbus; Plymspotter and also to briefly chat with Bev and F4Phantom.

Great videos. To be honest, it took off much earlier than some short haul aircraft do.
I saw Bev and PlymSpotter on BBC Look North this evening and had to chuckle when the reporter went...Plymouth!!!!....hehe

haha, I missed that too. Shame, sure I can track it down somewhere 


Great flight, and great to meet everybody again as well as new faces. Made it back to High Wycombe just in time, heading back to Plymouth for a few hours this evening so I'll try and get my pictures sorted out then. Big thanks to BA for the event

After arriving on G-JECY from Gatwick, I had a nice chat with Duna320, BA319-131 and Brewox, a quick word with Pawsleykat & mom (hi there!) before going on board. Great experience, especially backward facing from 13K

I had a great flight up from LHR on the jumbo, but bit gutted now I didnt fly it back also as there was so many of us lot on board. Oh well, live and learn. I ended up heading to EDI on the East Coast train then taking an E190 back to LCY, great flight that was, only 30 pax onboard the little 100 seater!

Great to chat to a few of you guys!

Nice to have a catch up, even though it was very short.

Just got back to Plymouth from Oxfordshire, so here are a few pictures of the landing and boarding. I didn't really take many in flight, just enjoyed the trip.
