Lately I’ve been very busy at work, with high passenger numbers as of late as a result of high demand, and unexpected events taking place leading to massive disruption, I’ve certainly been kept hot on my heels, with little time to spare!
Now with kids back at school in the UK until Christmas…not that I’m counting 😂, we’re in a quieter period of time of fewer flights, meaning less passengers departing and arriving.
As some of you may be aware, I work at London Stansted Airport in Essex
(host to yesterdays FNF event).
I found some time after completing duties and when I was operationally free this morning to take a quick photo which I later cropped, centred and colour graded of a Jet2 B737-800 preparing for pushback onto the Alpha taxiway behind, taking 189 passengers to Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands!

I have never been able to take pictures and post them from my work, but now as I’ve got a little bit more time as the summer season has drawn to a close, I’m hoping I can get more pictures and share them here 😊
Hope you like this photo, watch this space for more
(if I can and operationally have the time)
