Some menu selections include a generic aircraft model, as well as more specific variants of that airliner.

Note: On final for RWY09 at Norwich, just crossing the A140 road with the terminal and maintenance facilities on the left hand side. If you look closely you can just about see the Red Arrows parked up, as they were using this is a base for their...
Note: I love summer flying - here we are crossing the north Norfolk coast at the popular seaside resort of Cromer, visible below with it's pier. We were about to join downwind to land at Cromer-Northrepps airfield.
Note: First shot in the database of Marshland airfield, one of the only airfields in the UK that is situated below sea-level and hence why I wanted to drop in here for a quick visit on my tour of East Anglia's farm strips.
Note: On final approach to 'Wallis International', a farm strip near Peterborough. You should be able to make out the small grass strip, which has quite a challenging approach over the farm house and trees. The airfield is in a lovely location,...
Note: After a quick stop for lunch, we had to move on to our next airfield as we were trying to tick off 10 new airfields in a day. Plenty of interesting aircraft on the ground at Fenland, visitors along with residents. At the bottom of the shot...
Note: I've flown in to plenty of airfields, but this place in Cambridgeshire was pretty unique to say the least! Literally a grass strip cut out of a farmer's back garden, this was our parking spot whilst we stopped for a drink before spending...
Note: A fitting end to a brilliant Winter's day flying, approaching home with blue skies and almost unlimited visibility. We're on short final for RWY02, having flown back down from Peterborough Connington.
Note: The Fens from above - this is a natural marshland in eastern England which was drained several centuries ago for agricultural purposes. Most of it lays below sea level, hence it looks pretty wet!
Note: Final approach to RWY02 at North Weald in the last light of the day. We've made the most of the winter sunshine and had a day out in Kent, visiting the grass strips at Headcorn and Rochester. The worst bit is getting out in to the cold in...
Note: Final approach for RWY21 at Lydd on the southern Kent coastline. You can just about see Dungeness nuclear power station which makes for an interesting approach from the opposite end, trying to avoid the prohibited area.
Note: As we head over North London we can clearly see the London Liverpool St - Stansted Airport railway line - the airport is just visible in the far upper right hand corner. Taken as we ascend to our cruising altitude with Cpt Dan Nicholson at...
