And We’re Back…

After a short time away to change hosts, Manc Avgeek is back, and we’ve got a new blog (right here!), and a Wiki guide to all the best spots around Manchester and some other airports ( https://wiki.mancavgeek.co.uk).

We’ve also got our green lock up in the address bar!

The Wiki may end up being spun off in to its own site – I haven’t been to enough airports in the past couple of years for it to be anything useful for more than a few people, but we’ll see.

In the mean time, have a look around the main site, where hopefully I’ll be adding new stuff on a fairly regular basis – so many photos to edit, so little time!
