  1. Hi guys, Sorry for the lack of input for the forum lately, I've been very busy at work and with school. For those who don't know I currently work at Gatwick as a customer service host and promotions agent. I managed to pop airside the day Gatwick reopened just after the spat of heavy snow fall. However the area was under freezing fog for quite a while and visibility was severly reduced. Sorry for the glare in some of the photos, these were all taken inside the pier 6 bridge. Pier 5 (BA Pier) BA 777 tail BA 777 on pusback Taxiway and apron areas Easyjet A319 taxying Easyjet just after pushback Virgin 747 on Pier 6, not too often I've seen this! And lastly, a rather iced up BA 737 getting towed to a new stand after a recent snow shower And as an added bonus. Here is a picture of a Virgin 747 & BA 777 taxying underneath the Pier 6 bridge Thanks for looking!
  2. Hi Stu, Having been to Scotland many a time I can safely say that all year round the weather is a tad on the cold side! However the summer months will obviously tend to be alot warmer that others. I'd say the month of April is a fab time to visit if your only looking for a spring visit! Though winter in Scotland maybe present all year round, you will definatley notice the scottish winter creeping in from around August so wrap up warm!
  3. It's still so so so incredibly easy to defeat the secuirty systems at airports its unbelievable. This 100ml liquid rule is absolutley pathetic. Its incredibly easy to beat! It's no suprise bomb threats are in circulation on flights
  4. Hi guys, Before I even start, I'd ike to say a quick sorry for not contributing much recently. I am currently at the very tail end of my GCSE's and I also have work to attend to. Hopefully you shall see me more on these forums in the near future. Overall working at Gatwick means that during weekends when I usually film there, means I'm usually sick of the place before the weekend, so filming there for the time being has taken a dramatic decrease. However my youtube channel is still updated with video from flying, and my most recent includes some spin training and flight videos. Anyway, straight onto topic. I work for a company at Gatwick called Blackjack, and we basically assist with passengers and airport projects ETC helping them out. So this means I generally work at secuirty just making sure you naughty chappys don't bring too much liquid onboard the aicraft and I also help promoting things. One of our recent projects was to help the launch of the new look Gatwick airport. This involved building a temporary sandpit in South terminal arrivals and ploping some of our tidy looking babes and chaps onto the sandpit in some rather nice beach wear. The idea is supposedly to promote destinations ETC......Well.....I'm either too busy looking at other parts of the picture, but I cant really see where it promotes it.....but hey......9 hours just generally making sure everything was going smoothly....I couldnt really complain ..... Anyways.....if any of you are flying out of Gatwick this summer or anytime soon, let me know
  5. Sorry this note is pretty late and you've probably all made plans for the weekend, but I've not been on the forums much latley :blush: But if you live in the vicinity of Gatwick in Sussex and Surrey OR even further then pop along to the annual Gatwick Aviation enthusiasts fair at K2 Crawley. There is a large selection of photos, videos, DVD's, Models and much much more available to buy! The event takes place THIS Sunday the 25th of April If your popping along, let me know as it will be great too see some fellow forum members
  6. Hey guys! Thanks very much Dai - Luckily I speak some basic welsh so I knew what that meant, but I think it was slightly obvious anyway! Sorry about the lack of forum input lately guys, unfortunatley school work has too take some sort of priority at this time of year
  7. Shame I wasn't around to be able to film this at Gatwick yesturday as this is a truely awesome sight too see!! http://forums.airshows.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=21902
  8. Current situation: LGW is Easyjet heaven with 38 of their aircraft parked there. Luckily I didnt go filming today then at the airport! Would of been faced with nothing to film and full of boring Easyjet
  9. Looked like superb weather for flying there and looked like a great flight! Looks a very tidy airfield to fly out of and certainly looks alot less hectic than Shoreham does! I currently undergo around 2 trial lessons each year at Shoreham just for enjoyment and too see what its like. I am in the exact situation as you, exams this summer and then sixth form in September and wanting to get a PPL ASAP. Finding the money is a pretty hard job and it's the only thing stopping me at the moment
  10. Well as promised quite a while ago now, here are some new videos for the start of 2010. Heres a recent shot from filming at Gatwick nearly 2 months ago. What you see in use is the same camera I have been using for many years now along with the addition of a Rode Videomic and a Sony telephoto lens for some more close up shots. Oh and a rather idiotic unattractive boy Anyways. Here are the few videos to start off with. First is a shot with a BA 777 taxing head on. This was a fairly lucky shot as the taxiway they normally use parallel to the runway their using as a temporary taxiway was closed Theres also a version of this with a 747, just visit my channel and you should find it on the recent videos j5UkuaMiTL0 And then here is Gatwick in slow motion. You may remember I done one early last year. Well since then I have managed to create another and it seems to be quite a bit better. 9T_59ZwWqaE Well thanks again for watching, and I hope to keep you more up to date as much as possible, but as it's my final year in school, that has to take priority
  11. Have a tidy day my fellow welshman ...well seeing as the day has nearly gone....I think it's best if I say noswaith dda instead P.S sorry for the lack of forum activity recently. Unfortunatley school work has taken priority, but aslways check my youtube channel as I update every week
  12. Looking very tidy at the moment. Should be good to see the end result!
  13. Happy bday ads! Adam is currently in New York the lil jammy
