Photolog Manchester Airport 15th May 2019

A gorgeous sunny day, and a day off work?
Well, it would be rude not to!

There were a couple of spots I wanted to try out, including the new T2 West car park – as you can see from the photo of the Olympus A321 (and the FedEx B757 on the gallery), photography there is difficult but not impossible.

All in all, a great day out taking the camera for a walk, even if I was aching after!

Photo of the day 2018-09-18:

EI-CNY, Boeing 737-230, Ryanair.

Lining up on Runway 24 at Manchester.

Like many of Ryanair’s early 737’s, ‘CNY was painted in the colours of one of their sponsors, this one bearing a close resmblance to a pint of Kilkenny.

Taken from the Airport Hotel, sometime between October 1997 and August 2001.
