Aviation Retail Direct (London)

well, went up to ARD today with malcolm spear, as i had a week off from work! they only had i.f b.a negus 747 in for me, malcolm picked up EIGHT models! so took the usual several pics.























THE REST OF PICS CAN BE SEEN IN THIS LINK. THERE IS ALSO A VIDEO CLIP OF THE BACK AREA OF SHOP!

Login to a private Photobucket.com album

after that we popped over to heathrow, just as they switched landings to the FAR SIDE plus weather was poor. so even with 10x zoom on camera this is the closest we got.
