"Soufampton" - are you taking the p*ss? :D

Superb shot James, there are a few airlines I don't recognise as local but who knows what the future will bring :)

Good pic of what is a very busy airport for its size. Always startling to be passing by on the M27 when an aircraft comes over at almost rooftop height above the traffic.!

My only reservation is that you'd struggle to get a 737 out of EGHI unless you took several rows of seats out, and banned all those non-weighed 'cabin' size cases.. the runway just isn't long enough to operate safely in all types of weather..

I heard that the largest aircraft in there was a 757 but it must have been a struggle to get it back out.

I think there are plans to extend the length closer towards the railway lines which will help, but the south end of the runway is set.. the M27 motorway runs right at the end of it, and close enough that there is an EMAS-like section to prevent overrun.
