Re: Kestrel's Spotting Thread

Nice shots, the Connie 747 is one of my favourite visitors to Amsterdam! I love all their liveries, but the DHL Hybrid is the best looking for sure.

Re: Kestrel's Spotting Thread

Some nice pics here, I really like the Kalitta 747! I love how the livery shines when lit by the sun

The Royal Flight 777 is also a wonderful visitor!

LOL really? Such a bland and boring livery in my opinion... the Kalitta regular scheme beats it by a mile!

Re: Kestrel's Spotting Thread

Next up is the Cargojet, this flight was one of the reasons I wanted to head down to EMA. As far as I know it operates to transport PPE between the US and the UK along with Amerijet and ABX. The Amerijet was one I would have liked to see but unfortunately it was arriving at 23:30 and I had a 3 hour drive home so wasnt staying that long

Re: Kestrel's Spotting Thread

Those 737 freighters are very nice, I believe you got loads of West Atlantics hopping around the UK. It's also lovely to see the DHL A300s still plowing through!

Yeah, theres still a tonne of them still zipping about. Most operate past midnight so I only saw the one unfortunatley. The A300 was amazing to see, the noise it makes is marvelous!

Re: Kestrel's Spotting Thread

Nice one Reese, the photos actually are still on the sharp end for these low-light conditions. You and your camera do a great job.

Re: Kestrel's Spotting Thread

Funny story with this one, while the DHL 33F was landing a police car came and started moving people parked on the grass, myself and the others assumed it would be okay since the red route wasnt blocked on stopped on per say. Anyway I was far enough away that it was pointless running back to move since the 330 was seconds away and once it passed I ran back. Upon getting to my car a police officer was writting me a ticket but upon explaining that Im not from the area and assymed it was okay since everyone else was doing it, she ripped up the ticket and let me on her way, not all cops are bad!


The issue was a UPS 767 was on finals and a mad dash ensued to make it to another location a few hundred metres away from where I was before it arrived, thankfully I made it, sort of...

Unfortunately I didn't make it to the fence in time to catch it touching down and ended up panning through the fence. Wasnt gonna share this one but spent a fair while editing and was the best I could manage. I attached the before image for reference.
