Fairwell Farnborough

By lifesnapper  
Hi all, sorry I'm a bit hit and miss at the mo', and off again in a couple of Hours, but this is my 4th and final set from the Air Show. This Year it was very much about the A380 Airbus, as you can see from the images. Sadly the the Weather played a big part as to what I was able to Photograph and what not, and the Rain won the Day in the end and I was forced back inside one of the buildings before getting a soaking walking back to the CoachSad
Anyway, I hope you're are all keeping well, and I'll be uploading again on Tuesday with 'A Canterbury Tale' ( Olympic Torch)
Thanks for all your kind comments and votes on this rather heavy series, and don't worry, the Farnborough Air Show wont be back untill 2014Smile If we all survive 'till then of course Smile
All the best to all,

John Smile

A stunning set of images, which for me personally show a great deal of forethought in their compilation.

Good set, V10 is a cracker, though I suspect that V14 will be popular... Wink

Ah, thank you Nathan, and you're so right, I spend longer putting my images in what I think is the right order, than I do any other part of the process. Thanks for noticing Smile

Another expansive appreciation of the event, John, and you spoil us for choice today: you have recorded so many aspects so well and fully.
If I tried anything like V 14, I'd in all probability get caught doing so and receive a whack from Mrs. RonnieAG into the bargain.WinkWink

An interesting set from Farnborough,
Nice to see the A380 out in service, i took early retirement recently and the Trent 900 engine which powers the plane was one of the last development engines i worked on Smile

As a bit of a plane boffin myself, I find my attention and interest inexorably drawn to the lines, shape and form of the supersonis model in V14, John. Rotate, pull back on the stick and take off!Tongue

Thanks a bundle everyone, and thank you Graham P for making me aware that I'm not the only Aerospace Man on this siteSmile Sadly though, my retirement is a little way off yet.

No 1 is an excellent detail, well done tbh my Internet is far too slow at home to look at them all but the first ones are all worth their own post!

V14 has a fine looking shoulder bag.
