I went Plane - Spotting today!!

Hey people,

Today I went to EGKK (London Gatwick) to do some plane - spotting. I live near by the airport so it was only a five minute drive. During my time their I took some pictures of a whole range of aircraft including an A330 - Bae146. I took the pictures with a standard, normal camera and I don't know if there is a way to show these pictures to you on Flyaway. I'm not sure how so if anyone could tell me that would b great.

Altogether, I took about 40 pictures in all - obviously I will only show you the best ones. I got a good amount on approach, on takeoff and also planes holding short of the runway awaiting clearance.

I managed to get a picture of a Virgin Atlantic 747 should look good and also one of a Fly Emirates A330 - I think. On the tail of the A330, Fly Emirates, there was a little sign representing the Football World Cup ion Germany. This is obviously a rare paint of that aircraft.

So.. It would be great if someone told me how i can load my pics onto this site then that would be cool - and remember, I didn't use a digital camera, I used a normal, standard one. Very Happy

Thanks alot guys,

As i read you have a normal(film)camera.
So you must scan your pictures in order to have them in data files and them upload them.Do you have scanner?

Well you have to find someone who has a scanner or you can ask from the photograph shop you get them to put them in a CD.

Glad to hear you got some photos SteveT, I look foward to seeing them as Gatwick also used to be my local airport too and it turns out I used to live about 10 minutes down the road from SteveT Exclamation

On the tail of the A330, Fly Emirates, there was a little sign representing the Football World Cup ion Germany

Lol, it wouldn't happen to be this one would it? Although the sign is on the fuslage not the tail. I took that pic myself when I was plane spottin in New Zealand so prehaps it was arriving from Gatwick??? (BTW- I also have a photo of an Emrites A340 with the Germany 2006 vinal)

the plane that you posted is a 777 so it's obviously not going to be the same as the one that other guy spotted is it, his being an a330
