Interesting aircraft from trips around the UK in 2009!

Southend Wednesday 04th Feb!!  First port of call on the way home after spending a long weekend at the WEF2009/DAVOS at Zurich Airport  was Southend then Stansted!!  Always something of interest at Southend "even though the Boeing 707's have long gone!!!!!" A nice surprise was getting a number of jet movements which included ex Ryanair Boeing 737-8AS EI-CSN off to its new owners "Garuda!" routing Southend-Cairo-Maldives-Jarkarta!! two of the three ex Aloha Boeing 737-76Ns left also to new operator Arik Air in Nigeria direct to Lagos!!  also departing after maintenance was D-AHFE Boeing 737-8 of TUIfly!!

London Stansted Wednesday 04th Feb!!  Nipped into a dark and cold Stansted with only VP-BAM Bombardier Global 5000 to show for the efforts!

Newcastle Tuesday 16th June!!  A visit up the road to Newcastle Airport for a classic! Got word of a DC8 due "in the shape of Air Charter Express 9G-AED!!"  It was due to arrive three days running and position out every day about 8pm!!  I had decided to visit on the Tuesday after checking the weather forecast for the three days!! "Top be honest" all three days looked dreadful with cloud and rain!!  Still DC8s are very rare indeed now specially up the north east!
