          Good question! But not so easy to give you an answer! You just never know what's going to turn up at PIK and when.

              Mondays and Thursdays are my favourite days to visit on spec with three scheduled 747 Freighters on both days but there are often more with tech stops and "Reach" flights putting in for anything from an hour or so to fuel or staying until the next day for crew rest.

              Last Monday (14th Feb) I saw 6x 747 Freighters, 3x USAF Hercs, 1x CAF Polaris and an RAF Nimrod doing a low approach and go around.

              Today there were three 747's (2xPolar and 1x Atlas-full colours) so it does vary. Also the nice AN12 which I shot on Camcorder so will do a movie clip of that later. Plus numerous Ryanair with three today carrying extra titles.

              On both Mondays and Thursdays there is an Air France Cargo 747 which is usually a -200.

                Thanks for that guys BTW Kaplan forgot to say they were very nice photos I especially liked the golden glow of the sun.

                Keep them coming mate and Fred can't wait to see your video shots are you putting them on your website?

                  I have uploaded 10 new video clips but didn't get the time to check them all out to make sure they load okay due to being at Prestwick yesterday so will do that later today and add the page code with them on it. The last of those 10 is the USAF Herc that had a tail strike (not too bad though).

                  I Camcordered the AN12 landing yesterday rather than used the Digi camera so got the distinctive AN12 nose down on short finals before landing. Will add that one next weekend.
