Here you go @nicochile2. Finally got round to Part 2!

This time, these shots are taken from the free car park on the Elmdon side of Birmingham Airport (BHX/EGBB). This spot overlooks Runway 15/33 and the terminal, with the cargo apron directly at my feet! Hope you enjoy these shots :)

I understand these shots aren’t nearly as good as those in Part 1. This is mainly because of the weather, and the lack of my will to edit…

Very nice pictures!

Spotting EGBB in IF is exciting too: we get a lot of the 747-giant and Airbus-hugely-out-of-proportion-380’s. ;-)
