              Fantastic shots! A great job, Comet.

              Seems like Grey was proved wrong with that 747SP then.

                  The 747SP is a dream. I wish I would get one once.

                    Wow a huge amount of great shots Comet, and you sure bagged some interesting things.

                    Im going to be really pedantic and say "The first BA is a 146-200 and not an ARJ"

                    I profusely apologise

                        In what way, LFC?

                        Some nice pictures there, Comet. But please tell me you saw the Air Italy B757 working for MyTravel!!!

                        I was going to PM you about it, but you've turned them off......

                              Things happen i.e an aircraft change last minute, due to a technical prob, or maybe they wanted to bump up the capacity by puting the SP on the route for that paticular day.
                              So i dont see how Grey was proved wrong, all he said was usually Syrian operate an A320, its up to Syrian what they want to run

                                  Thanks for the comments

                                  Yes Grey, I did see the Air Italy but it was too distant to be able to get a photo so I had to make do with just getting that one on video. The SP was a true catch, I was totally chuffed when I saw that beauty landing! My Mum had offered to buy me a flight on it for my birthday but we couldn't between LHR and MAN.

                                  Sorry for the mistake about the BAe 146, I couldn't see the reg clearly to be able to check it up proeprly so I just made a guess.

                                  And I will be going to BHX on 4th September and flying from there on morning of 5th September, so I hope the weather will be decent and let me get a few hours in because I won't get there until the afternoon (useless train timetable and no train from Scarborough until 09:26 on a Sunday instead of 06:33 like it is midweek.) I don't know what I hope to see in BHX because I've only done Tuesday afternoons there before.
