Airbus Industries A380

The Airbus 380 made it's first appearence in Scotland on Saturday with low passes at Edinburgh, Glasgow and Prestwick Airports and I went to Prestwick to see it make two circuits around the Airport.

A sizeable crowd appeared on the "Mound" to see the A380 Demonstrator and I decided to stand some way back so that I would be a little less underneath as it was always likely to follow the centreline of the Runway while making these two passes and this also gave me the oppertunity for a Pan of the crowd who came to the Airport to see it.

In this Clip I have added some crowd scenes either side of the display showing those waiting for it's arrival and the leaving after the aircraft had departed for the next leg of it's display elsewhere so it is comfortably longer than any of my other Clips at 3 Minutes and 44 Seconds with a File size of 21.4 Megabytes.

***Once the Movie opens if you double click on it the display will be full screen removing the Borders, personally that is how I prefer to view them.



This update has been a long time coming with my last Movie Clips having been Uploaded some three months ago so I am making up for that with 16 new Clips added to this page.

I now remove old Clips when I add new ones rather than have lots of Clips that are no longer regularly viewed so I will continue to remove about the same number that I add from now on.

The last Clip added on this page is a Convair 580 from Palmer Alaska and I intend to add more new ones from there in my next update plus a few from Anchorage so watch out for those coming in a future update.

Air France Cargo 747

These days the Air France Cargo Flights at Prestwick are mainly operated by the Airlines new Boeing 777-200 Freighters but occasionally a Cargo 747-400 does it instead, this one was taxiing out and departing from Runway 31 on a sunny afternoon.

Moskovia Airlines 737-700

This was one of the highlights in what had been an excellent 4 or 5 weeks of interesting visitors to Prestwick and Glasgow and was one I thought would end up not coming through at all.

The Aircraft had technical problems and was delayed for 10 days and each time it re-filed from Jacksonville Orlando to Prestwick the times were poor usually late being evening or the middle of the night so when it was finally fixed there were further delays resulting in it's arrival just after Midday so a very good result to see it come in and depart again almost 4 hours later after it's Fuel Stop.

Aerovis Antonov 12

I was at Prestwick for the Moskovia 737 and it turned out to be a very good day with 3x C23 Sherpa's of the US Army arriving for a 2 day stop and as a final bonus this old Antonov 12 arrived to uplift some Freight and it left a couple of hours later so I was able to record it in and out.

Algerian Air Force IL76

Certainly one of the best visitors of the year to Scotland this IL76 was a classic versions that was banned from European Air Space 5 or 6 years ago under Stage Three noise Rules but this does not apply to Military operated aircraft.

The IL76 was here to uplift a Jet Engine for an Air Algerie Airbus 330 and it parked beside the Freight Sheds to load up the Engine and left later during the afternoon.

The IL76 taxis past me after landing on Runway 13 as the sizeable crowd on the "Mound" click away with their Cameras.

Algerian Air Force IL76

Now taxiing out on departure and unfortunately the rain had started for the first time of the day just after it appeared from behind the Terminal Building, rotten luck with the weather and normally I would switch off my Camcorder in this but it was a very special visitor so I continued on until it had departed.

Algerian Air Force IL76

Departing from Runway 31 and you can see the smoke belching out of it's engines as it does a short warm up before Rolling.

US Air Force KC135

Taxiing out to depart from Runway 13 while on it's Mission to refuel Fighter aircraft, it was very overcast on this day so I went to the North side to see it leave a spot of little use when the sun is out as it is directly in front for most of the day.

US Air Force KC135

A different KC135 arriving at Prestwick to land on Runway 13 and here to join the first one already parked on Apron Hotel.

Having rolled past me after landing on Runway 13 the KC135 taxis past while taxiing to Apron Hotel where it stayed for the night.

US Air Force KC135

One of the two KC135's on the move at Prestwick this day and they were apparently here to refuel German Air Force Phantoms on their way to the United States, this one was landing on Runway 13 having departed earlier in the day and is as seen from an angle that looks down the Runway at a distance.

Grumman Goose (Alaska Museum)

Our visit to Anchorage coincided with the "Alaska Airmen's Association Trade Show" at Anchorage Airport which is held on the Fedex Ramp and this still Airworthy Goose from the Alaska Aviation Museum at Lake Hood was one of the exhibits due to taxi across to the Airport from Lake Hood.

The only problem was how to get it past the Alaska Airlines 737-200 (another Museum exhibit) just out of shot on the left, the space was very tight so it was interesting to watch them figure out how to do it which involved opening up the Hanger and putting the Wing inside to squeeze past the 737 while pushing it back.

Grumman Goose (Alaska Museum)

You don't see a 66 year old Grumman Goose (Built in 1943) start up every day so this was one not to be missed for my Camcorder, I didn't have my Tripod handy so it is handheld but still steady enough as it was quite close to where I was standing.

Grumman Goose (Alaska Museum)

Having spluttered to life with a few clouds of smoke the Goose taxis very close past me as it heads to the Crossing that will take it into Anchorage Airport for Parking on the Federal Express Ramp.

Con Air Convair 580

We had a great visit to Palmer Alaska with clear skies, fantastic scenery and really interesting aircraft to see including this Con Air Convair 580 which was positioning in from Canada to be based at Palmer for the Summer Season on Fire Fighting duties.

I didn't have time to put my "dead cat" wind protector on top of the Microphone on my camcorder but the wind noise is not too bad.

After landing the Convair taxiis in for Parking as the guys get busy taking photos of it while I stuck with my Camcorder all the way until it shut down and then walked over for some photos.
