Photo of the Day 17th September 2023

Side view of a twin engined jet airliner taxiing from right to left. The planes body is in a natural metal finish, with a blue, white, and red stripe running from nose to tail, and red "American" titles on the upper forward fuselage. There are a pair of capital letter "A"s, one red, the other blue, on the tail, with an image of a stpooping eagle between them. In the background, various large building line the airfield, with a pair of planes, in front of them, one plane on each side of the frame, both facing to the lower right corner. Threes are visible through the haze in the distance. The overall scene is a bit hazy and grainy, but with some strong sunlight from the left, with bright speckles on this planes forward fuselage, and a strong shadow on the ground.
Unknown registration Airbus A300-605R, American Airlines, at London Heathrow, some time in the 1990s.
I was hoping the RAF VC10 in the background would gicve me a clue as to the date and/or registration, but no.

Side view of a twin engined bizprop parked facing to the right. The plane is mostly white, with a blue and red stripe running along the body. The registration "G-FIND" is displayed prominently on the upper rear fuselage. There is a black and white image of a hill with a lighthouse on to on the tail, over "Air Corbiere" titles. The body has a lot of squared off windows in the passenger cabin, getting smaller and more angular as they move to the rear. In the background, strips of grass are seperated by taxiways and runways, with a black metal fence barely hidden behind bushes seperating the wirfield from the brown brick building pretty much next door. On the upper right of the frame, an orange windsock is pointing to the left, indicating the wind direction.

Side view of a single-engined light aircraft parked facing to the right and slightly away from the camera. The plane is mostly white, with a thick red stripe running along the fuselage, and the top of the nose in front of the cockpit painted black. There are 3 red stripes running along the top of the wings, and 5 red stripes on the rear half of the tail. The fixed hundercarriage has white spats with a single red stripe over the wheels. The registration "G-BRDD" is on the tail in large red letters, with smaller "CAP10 N.224" titles right at the top. The cockpit has a large sliding bubble canopy, which is closed, with one side of the instrument panel clearly visible. In the foreground, an orange plastic mesh fence is held up by black metal poles, one of which has started leaning. In the background, another single engined light aircraft painted red and white sits opposite this one on the right of the image, while metal fencing beyond that seperates the crowd from the planes. Beyond that, large white tents on the right of the frame, one with a banner along the top reading "Airshow programmes", and various vehicles including an ice cream van and a green guel tanker are on the left of the frame, with tall trees beyond that almost obscuring the grey sky.

Side view of a 4 jet-engined cargo plane parked facing to the left, with it's nose door raised to take on some cargo. The plane is mostly white, with a grey belly, and a red strip running along the fuselage. The tail is also white, with a red chevron pointing to the left, with a couple of red diagonal lines behind it - if anything, it looks like a 3 fingered left fist, with the thumb angled slightly downwards. There are thick black "Martinair" titles on the upper forward fuselage, with thinner "Holland" titles immediately after, with thick "Cargo" titles on the upper mid fuselage. The engines are silver, withthe red martinair logo and "Martinair" titles. The there is a set of blue airstairs next to an open door in the side of the fuselage, with a small blue car parked at the bottom of the stairs. There is a cargo lift raised by the open nose door. There is a refuelling truck parked between the 2 engines on this side of the plane, with the wheels of a similar truck on the far side visible under the body. In the foreground, the roof of one of the terminal buildings fills most of the lower part of the frame. in the background, tall lighting poles stand in front of a black building with red trim nestled in trees, with more trees in the background, vanishing into the hazy grey cloud cover.

The roof of Pier C is at the bottom of the photo – at one point, this was part of the extensive viewing deck, but sadly is long closed.
