How I love technical delay on mid-night departure flights, seldom have to the chance to see the BA whalejet in day time.
A daylight British Airways departure from Hong Kong is very unusual these days. This flight was delayed by about 12 hours and is seen here departing off runway 07R back to London.
On short final for runway 27L, with the clouds making a great backdrop.
Speedbird 269 touches down on LAX's runway 24R during the Golden Hours of spotting. BAW's scheme may appear dull in normal daylight, but with the sunset's golden light, it looks splendid. (1024px)

In the late evening she climbs slowly under a full load of passengers and fuel.
Speedbird coming in from Heathrow right before sunset.
1st take off with new colors.
