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

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. ;-)


Aww! Love that photo of the 2 prop planes at the start


Top class photos as always. Salut


Those are some really nice photos


747 irl don’t fly to egbb. Only the a380 does.
