A380 at Manchester     Dave Rose, Ian McMaster and Aidan Williamson       12/9/10


Its been a few weeks since Emirates started their daily A380 service into Manchester and we wanted some shots of the thing before the weather got into the "grim" category. Manchester has been pretty poor this year on the variety front and we have never seen it so quiet, they were only using 23R so that says it all. We spotted from the top of the multi storey dodging some early showers and it got steadily brighter. Etihad have changed to a 77W which made a nice change along with Singapore who have also upgraded from a 772. Manchester has a steady stream of transatlantic schedules, 2 American 757s, 2 Continental 757s, a Delta 763, 757 and a US Airways 333 so its not all bad!!

We moved down to the excellent "Tatton Arms" for some landing shots, the car park became very busy with "That Big Airbus" watchers ready for the scheduled arrival at 12.35pm. It duly appeared on time to much "phewing" and "my gods" from the crowd!!.

We left shortly after as the schedule looked remarkably rubbish!! calling at Leeds, Multiflight's corporate 733 SX-MTF being parked on their apron. Driving up the A1 we spotted a C130 doing circuits at Leeming so popped in for a look, there were 2 plus a couple of Leuchars Tornado F3's, presumably from the recent Families day.

Thats it, a decent day out and a few photos (below)
