    The A380s's look wierdly small, more like 737 size on the photos, until you look at how small the cockpit glass is :)

    Were these taken over a few weeks ?
    I've heard it's a small time airport servicing London Village.

    Must have been a few weeks ago for the Queensland And Northern Teriitories Air Service A380, given the RR engine issue.

    The A380 is pretty impressive. It's footprint is almost square in that is as wide as it is long. On the ground the height of the tailfin tells you just how big it is.

    Somewhere I have a pic of a Singapore Airlines A380 berthed next to a 747-400 at LHR T3, which shows the scale. And an Emirates 737 next to an A380 in Auckland when we'd just got off the A380 from Sydney.

    btw johnaalex, have you ever been to the QANTAS museum at Longreach in Queensland? Well worth it if you ever get that way. But it needs to be on a pond hopper, not a jet service as the airfield doesn't take jets being as small as it is.

    The shots were all taken yesterday, Qantas resumed their A388 service the day before so I think this was the first one to leave LHR after the engine problem.

    Sadly I have not yet visited Oz, but one day I will...

    Blue sky - anothe PSE 9 option ;)

    A good place to park up to watch the planes is Cain's Lane, Hounslow which is right at the end of the southern runway.

    You will too...:laugh:
    Yesterday was bright but never above 0 degrees though
    I was at the Bath Road Airport Bowl with my 10 year old (She was having a little birthday Party) and stepping out could clearly see planes landing at LHR


    I see youve moved on to PSE9;)
    Ill bear Cain Lane in Mind, not too far from us. Wife works in Hounslow

    how do you know what colour his bedroom ceiling is:eek:

    John, I find PSE9 just as fast as pse8 on my PC try a clear out and defrag before install as that might help, mines a quad core i7 and 6GB trilinear ram which helps but a 'junk and tidy' clean up won't do any harm

    John - are you referring to specific features of PSE9 or just the cataloguing or everything ?

    ...and how slow is "very slow" and what are you comparing to PSE8 ?

    I went from PSE 6 straight to 9. My PC is not as powerful as yours, I have a 3 year old machine but it is no slouch on most things. I have done a defrag, but it made no noticable difference.

    Loading takes over 3 minutes and anything involving updating the catalogue (save or delete) takes over a minute.

    9911 at the moment. But the point is that this is not much larger then when I used PSE 6 which was quicker.
