    Fantastic photos Kevin I was self employed at the time so I I was able to spend loads of time to watch the coming and goings mostly from what is now car park5 (cost a fortune in parking ).Missed Air Force One though.

    Thanks again.

    That's a possibility, Rollo.

    Also in view is the nose of a Turkmenistan B757 in the old blue colour scheme. Behind the aircraft is temporary fencing, which would indicate that apron expansion construction work was going on. Would this time with the Ryder Cup?
    At the time, I was told that the Concorde service from JFK to BHX was in fact a rescheduled JFK-LHR service and not a charter so that BHX had a scheduled supersonic service from JFK (even if it was a one off). Can anyone confirm or correct this?

    The Framework Plan for UK Hub Central talks up the growth in maintenance at BHX which is interesting. Little talk of cargo.....maybe we could become a national strategic facility as the number of bases grow. Centre of aviation engineering....

    With the way that MAEL have been gaining contracts I could definitely see that happening, especially if the much rumoured third bay ever gets built.

    The one spanner in the works is Boeing's own hangar planned for LGW. I imagine it could/would be much more efficient for the likes of Virgin and Norwegian to get their 787 work done there when it opens? I guess we'll see.

    Love the photos but the way i feel right now after losing icelandair, better hold onto the military flights as that may be all we have left.

    Thanks for posting.
