Manchester Airport Spotting

Planespotting at Manchester Airport (MAN / EGCC)

Today I went planespotting at Manchester Airport at Terminal 1. Before that I was seeing my sister off who is currently on the biggest adventure of her life, she’s flying from Manchester - Abu Dhabi - Bangkok. From Bangkok (one month later) she will spend 6 months in New Zealand! Anyways. It was fairly dark and wet so some photos have got what looks like wiry lighting from flood lights and taxiway lights. (It was cold and I was shivering) Anyways I hope you enjoy, nothing special. I’ll probably try and spot at Manchester during the daytime, hopefully next weekend since Manchester will be getting an arctic blast!
