Remarks: Parked on the apron after a pleasure flight between Blackpool and Fleetwood. This aircraft was built in 1944 at Loughborough by Brush Coach Works and delivered to the RAF as serial number NF875. She was purchased in 1945 by Iraq Petroleum Transport and began a career in the Middle East where she remained in service until 1964 then returned to the UK as a parachute trainer. She was overhauled and repainted in Navy colours in 1977 before moving to Duxford as an air taxi. It was here that she was re-christened G-AGTM and so became Tango Mike. The aircraft was damaged in a minor landing incident in 1987 and taken to Audley End for repair. She was bought in 1994 by Dave Geddes and fully restored. Tango Mike returned to the skies in 1996. I loved every second of my 30 minute flight aboard her.
Remarks: Airside view of the old Dalaman - Mulga International Airport terminal building as we power down runway 01 aboard flight OHY379 back home to Manchester at 0720. This photo was taken out of the window of an Onur Air Airbus A300B4-605R, TC-OAA from seat 10G. I beleive this terminal is now used for domestic flights. The new terminal is a huge imporvement over the old terminal.
Remarks: View of the front cabin of this big 'bus, taken from my seat (5C) on flight OHY380 from Manchester, to Dalaman, Turkey. This was my first ride in an A300, they have a great rate of climb and the flight was very smooth. The flight departed 90 minutes late due to a technical problem. Seat pitch is 30" so quite roomy.
Remarks: Cabin shot of this big 'bus as we fly back home to Manchester on flight OHY379. The Airbus A300 is a super aircraft, the climb rate is impressive. Photo of the rear cabin of the aircraft. I was sat in 10K for the 4 hour flight. We were approx. 60 mins from landing when this shot was taken, just to the north-west of Brussels according to the flight information screen. Onur Air are an adequate airline, but I wouldn't use them again unless they are last resort. Their aircraft maitenence and cabin procedures is something to be desired! (ISO800 f/6.3 @ 1/6th)
Remarks: A view down runway 01 at Dalaman - Mulga International Airport as we line up aboard flight OHY379 back home to Manchester at 0720. This photo was taken out of the window of an Onur Air Airbus A300B4-605R, TC-OAA from seat 10K. a First Choice 757-200 is on stand at the new terminal building and a Pegasus 737-800 is on a remote stand. Landing and take off at this airport are unique, there is only one way in and one way out due to the surrounding terrain!

Remarks: Wing view taken a few seconds after taking off from Dalaman - Mugla International Airport, Turkey (DLM / LBTS). Banking right while climbing for our 4 hour flight (OHY379) back home to Manchester at 0720, just after sunrise. The Airbus A300 is a super aircraft, the climb rate is impressive. Taken from seat 10K. Onur Air are an adequate airline, but I wouldn't use them again unless they are last resort
Remarks: View from my seat, 9C. The seats are green leather and quite comfortable. Top Gear was on the IFE at the time! The flight was uneventful, very smooth and lasted 4 hrs 40 mins. This photo was taken 4 hours in to the flight so we would have been in Turkish airspace at the time. The landing was nice and smooth and bang on time. This is my second trip with FCA this year, one long haul on their 767-300's (G-OOBM and G-OOAN), and this short haul flight. FCA are a very good charter airline IMO
Remarks: Lined up, ready for take off on runway 24L, departing as FCA767 on a test flight before going in to service 2 days later. I flew to Varadero, Cuba on this aircraft on 3rd March 2006 (FCA048). The Star Class interiors are excellent, great job FCA.
Remarks: View of the Star Class cabin aboard alpha-november at 2am, somewhere over the Atlantic as I head home after 2 weeks in Varadero, Cuba. Taken from seat 20A on flight FCA049. The Star Class cabins are very spacious with thier 33" seat pitch and comfy leather seats. The seat back IFE is great as well. Well done FCA, flights were first class (ISO 800, f/3.5, 1/13th)
Remarks: Cabin view from my seat, 21G aboard FCA's newest 767 to their fleet, ex Vietnam Airways. About 4 hours in to our 9.5 hour flight from Manchester to Varadero, Cuba (Flt No: FCA048) so I'd guess we'd be just over half way across the Atlantic by then. The Star Class cabins are very spaciaous, 33" seat pitch and the leather seats very comfortable. IFE is great as well.
Remarks: The view from my seat, 21G aboard FCA's newest 767 to their fleet, ex Vietnam Airways. About 6.5 hours in to our 9.5 hour flight from Manchester to Varadero, Cuba (Flt No: FCA048). We are following the eastern coast of America, just passing New York City which is in the background.
Remarks: A view of Terminal 1, part of Terminal 3 and the control tower, taken from the south side of the airport. A British Airways A320-100 is being prepared for its flight to LHR along with an Eastern Airways BAe Jestream 41 and a Bmi A320-200 (Canon 350D + 75-300 IS USM)
