    Had a trip to BAE Warton on friday and got some rather different planes than usual to point my camera at
    the mighty Antonov had a bird strike on the font window, so was supposedly going to be grounded for a week, but luckily for me it took off the day I was there, albiet the weather was rain/sleet and extremly cold and windy

    All could do with levelling out a bit to be honest :)

    I like them all but its just a shame the first doesnt do the AN225 justice to show off how bloomin huge it is!

    Shame about the weather. I'm sure these would look a lot nicer on a sunny day. Can't be helped though.

    The weather let me down when I went to Manchesters Viewing platform.. Although those planes are very nice. The cargo transporter (AN124) is just such a weird and beautfiul shaped plane. It doesnt really matter how you capture it. Its still eye candy

    Very nice, just a shame the typhoon is on a massive angle, but can be sorted.

    I notice you are a bit of a EGCC (Manchester) spotter then?

    I will be up a at the viewing park and other roundabout locations with my camera :)
