Kestrel's Spotting Thread

Hello everyone its been a while!


I haven't been spotting for a few years now due to lack of time caused by work but as we all know due to Covid-19 the aviation industry is in tatters and this caused me to be on furlough since March and in signifigant risk of losing my job in the coming weeks. The silver lining to all this though is that I have had shed loads of free time which I've began utilising to explore my previous hobby of planespotting again.



My first trip was to EGCC a few weeks back but I forgot to charge my camera so got 0 pics


My second trip was yesterday evening. Royal Flight's 777-300ER VP-BGK was operating ZSOF-UUEE-EGCN rammed full of PPE. Thanks to a kind tip off from ThomsonAirways737 I decided to head down. Unfortunately the sunset and perfect lighting I had envisioned didnt come to be and it ended up being a thunderstorm.


Heres my offical Flickr for spotting https://www.flickr.com/photos/189540...posted-public/ (the one photos are linked too is just for dumping pics)

Re: Kestrel's Spotting Thread

Great catch in this Royal Flight 777! I've seen it dash around Europe for the past few months. We've only been getting the Nordwind 777s at AMS

Thanks guys, I believe a Nordwind 77W visited DSA a couple of months back too.

Re: Kestrel's Spotting Thread

Another one from yesterdays trip down to Doncaster. The rest of my shots weren't up to scratch so wont be shared, so this will be my last post for a few weeks untill I head down to EGNX.


Wizz Air A320 HA-LYS operating EGCN-LRCL departing 44 minutes late, I assume due to weather.

Re: Kestrel's Spotting Thread

Weather seems to have reverted back to typical British everytime you head to the airpot. I was watching the British GP which seemed to have unusually good weather

Indeed it does, the storm wasnt even forcast untill halfway to the airport


I was watching the GP too, must admit the weather at Silverstone was an anomaly and will likely be a storm next week


Good race though, not a Hamilton fan personally but fair play to him for the last lap!

Well wet weather races always spice things up. I was sh*tting myself the last lap, what a lap that was. Not necessarily a Hamilton fan (I'm Dutch, duh), just a fan of good racing.
