    A few more nostalgic BHX photos from me (I hope you're not getting bored).

    Firstly Air France Concorde F-BTSC (BHX's first Concorde?)
    For this, we were stood in a field that is now part of the terminal complex. Sorry about the quality, I think I was using a Zenith E with a Chinon 90-190 zoom lens. Why I chose B&W film, I have no idea

    [​IMG]
    Note also, the Transavia Holland B737-200 and the Caravelle (airline not known) to the left of the picture.

    A couple of shots of a TAP B707 from the old terminal. I assume this was operating holiday charters to Portugal.

    And a Finnair DC-9-10/15, possibly operating for BMA

    Continuing with the old terminal

    Onwards to the new terminal

    Here we have a BAC One-Eleven 400 and a ROMBAC One-Eleven 500

    Great photos. The Cyprus Airways A310 arriving was always exciting!

    Thanks guys. I've enjoyed sharing them and have many more if you are interested. No point them being sat in a photo album in a cupboard when there are people here who would enjoy them (I have no problem if you want to keep personal copies, but please respect my copyright with regard to posting elsewhere).

    I think you are right. The tail logo matches this which I found on a web search

    Makes me wonder if the 737 and Caravelle were there to return passengers who had booked Concorde one way (either CDG-BHX or BHX-CDG).

    At risk of being accused of pedantry, the BA 763/752s went to EWR, not JFK...

    Great images, I was there for the AF Concorde standing down the Aeroclub end with a few regulars, an interesting conversation cropped up when the SST taxi'd down the western apron to the end stand, and parked at a diagnal angle, I was told the reason for this was the airport at the time did not have a SST tow bar, so she had to park in a way so she could depart under her own power, I understand they kept the next stand clear so she could swing round on departure.

    JFK was the airport that BA served from BHX.
    Latterly the flight went on to Toronto.
    Newark has only been served by Continental/United.

    No, BA186/187 was to EWR...
    I’m 100% sure on this. This was back in the days when it went via GLA on 3 or 4 days per week on the 763.

    Not sure about what happened when it was a daily 752 or when the flight numbers went mental and I couldn’t even remember YYZ! That could well have been JFK but still think it was EWR!

    The 767 before it went to JFK too. BA never flew to Newark from BHX!
