    Edinburgh variety 1990s

    Hello All,
    I would like to share with you a selection of images taken at Edinburgh during the 1990s, showing airliner types and colour schemes no longer around, most were taken on the 3 aprons I was employed at over an 11 year period, the rest shot from the former viewing gallery and around the perimeter. I hope to unearth some more later, but in the meantime hope these are of interest.

    Cargo lion pic

    OG,
    I decided on an elevated angle and climbed to the top of a handy set of passenger stairs, the DC8 was a substitute for the usual TNT 727, thanks for the comments, I will post afew more soonest.

    Some other notes on the first lot of images:- Caravelle (rugby charter) 1992, Aeroflot Il 86 its tow bar is being loaded back into the hold before dep, not sure of the year, Air Dabia 747 is the ex United AL example that had the unfortunate cargo door blow-out in Hawaii, pic from 1997, Tower Air 747-200 took a Scottish regiment to an exercise in the US departing direct to Boston, the Northwest DC10-40 was a Glasgow diversion due to fog, they bussed the pax from Glasgow and it is seen departing direct for Boston Logan 1993, the Transbrasil 767-300 arrvived direct from Sao Paulo and returned within an hour and a half having a second crew on board 1995.

    Some great shots. Love the Caravelle, and that head-on shot of the IL62 makes it look as though it really 'means business'.......and it did

    More Edinburgh 1990s,(a couple fm late 80s)

    Thanks to all for the feedback.
    MSR777, the Air Toulouse Caravelle is one of my favourites, these classic type were once commonplace at Edinburgh during the french rugby invasions!, I have afew more images of the type and will post a Caravelle special next as I think there are quite afew fans of this classic jetliner out there besides myself.

    Image notes:- 1. A couple Air Inter types, A300 at lift off 1992, 2. Mercurie just departing the terminal 1996 (my one and only sighting of this type), 3. Two from the late 80s, Air Atlantis B707, and I got lucky just in time to see this departing Jetstar, both from former viewing gallery, 4. Peach Air Tri-Star returning to Cardiff with rugby fans about to turn and line up, not sure of year, 5. Arriving AF 747-200 from Paris CDG, 6. Another substitution for the usual TNT 727, Canadian First Air, pic taken same year and stand as Cargo Lion DC8 1998, 7. Surpise visitor to the GAT/Exec apron, DH Dove G-ARHW, these were getting rarer even in the nineties, I just had to take this pic, I have not found out much about this particular aircraft and is still abit of a mystery to me!

    I'm really looking forward to seeing those Caravelle pic. I used to work with the type during the early to mid 80s. The owners were Sterling, Transwede, Transeuropa, and Air Provence. Some of the Sterling machines were of the Super 12 version, as were the ones belonging to Air Provence. All beautiful aircraft. The Caravelle in your pic was originally a Sterling machine.

    Caravelles at Edinburgh

    Hello all,
    Some Caravelle images taken at Edinburgh in the late 1980s early 90s, all were shot during French Rugby invasions, I was lucky to see some but not all Caravelle movements and they slowly disappeared from the scene by about 1993/4.

    Image notes:- 1. A Corse Air 6N parked on the Cargo apron 1988?, 2. Star AL 10B at the GAT apron 1992, 3. Air Service Nantes 10B arr/dep pics 1992, 4. Caravelle 12 of Air Provence parked on the old 08/26 runway threshold,5. A comparison in fuselage lengths of a MK 12 and a MK 10B, at the main terminal 1992,6. Air Provence 12 taxying for the 30 threshold of the secondary 6,000ft (1,829m) runway, 7. An aerial shot showing roughly the position of the 12 on the taxiway, taken from a Cessna 172 and before major airfield work 1998.

    Sorry, I just realised that you put that 'mystery' Caravelle info in your image notes. I must phone my optician
