MancAvGeek is proud to announce that the site is now officially part of The Fediverse – posts are now federating across various parts of several Distributed Social Networks, to varying degrees.

The best results are with Mastodon, but a couple of other apps (most notably Pleroma) work pretty well – and as most of the Fediverse runs on those, most people will be able to see and interact with this site.

Lets see your photos!

This isn’t about Manchester Airport, or even about Spotting generally – but there are so many people worrying about putting photos up in the various Social Media groups when there are so many excellent photographers out there posting stunning shots.
The current banner for one FB group (Ryanair 737-200 parked at a snowy T2) is an old shot of mine – not because it’s any good (I’ll be the first to point out all its flaws), but because I was the only person to enter the banner competition.
I claim no particular skill at photography, nor at photo editing,but these images capture a moment in time, and I hope that people find them interesting, or bring back memories – and judging by the comments and conversations on some of them, I occasionally succeed.
So come on, everyone – share those photographic memories – some may critique your skills or abilities, while others (like me) will appreciate a trip down Amnesia Lane.
My usual drivel will return in 3… 2… 1… 😉

D-BIRT, De Haviland Canada DHC8-102, Augsburg Airways, at Manchester Airport, sometime after December 1995.

I think this was taken from the end of Pier A, which would make it 1st March 1996, on my way to London Gatwick.
