Getting out with the camera to try new things, I heard about the A380 turning up at Manchester for the first time last night and decided to pop round, original plan was drive out there about 11ish plane landing at 12:25. Prebooked car parking last night and heard on the radio this morning it was busy at 8:30am so got up, showered and off we went arrived at about 9:30.
Anyway had a bit of work to do while there phone calls etc so shooting was limited but got a few. I won't bore you with the many shots of 777's and 737's
Airbus A300 Beluga flew overhead as we waited.
The A380 finally turned up (on time)
A380 on its way in, just as the old big bird passed the viewing area and got in the way.
Due to the 474 no chance of getting the rear wheels touch down but I did get the front wheels smoke, shame I cut the wing tip off.
The sad sight of concorde in prison as the A380 came past.

The A380 getting on its way again
Sadness, The last time I was at the viewing area, concorde came in for its last flight.
