Saturday 19th June Air UK's Fk27 Friendship
G-BHMY & Casair's newly reregistered Shorts SH330 G-OCAS were of interest on
Monday 26th July Nipped up tonight to
shoot British Midland Douglas DC9-15 G-BMAB departing as (BMA339) to
Heathrow, and also one of my favourite aircraft in the shape of Balkan Airlines Ilyushin
IL18D LZ-BET!! This particular aircraft served with Balkan Airlines until it
being withdrawn from use in the late 1980's! It was last reported at Sofia
in a sorry state in 1996!!
Sunday 22nd August. A Scandinavian
double this afternoon produced, LN-PAD Be200 Super King Air of Partnair and
Holstrom Flyg PA31 Navajo SE-GIS.
Saturday 28th August
The only two shots i kept from the 1982 Airshow were of Dominie XS731 and
Saturday 25th September. Nor Fly
Convair CV580 LN-BWN arrived and departed the next day!
Monday 27th September. G-BIEZ Be F90
King Air of Eagle Air Services was a regular visitor to Teesside Airport in
Saturday 30th October. Managed to
shoot one of the locally based Polar Airways aircraft this morning, Viscount
G-AOYI was still in basic British Airways colours with the Polar titles. Not
much else of interest on this murky day apart from Dan Air HS748 G-BEKC.
Wednesday 3rd November. "Looking like an ex
Libyan Arab Airlines machine" N299W Falcon 50 arrived a couple of days ago
and parked on stand 2!
Sunday 14th November. Not a lot today
apart from most of Casair's fleet, which were well positioned for a souvenir
Saturday 20th November Polar Airways
Viscount G-AOHT & a couple of EMB110 Bandeirante's were the reason for two
visits today!! Centreline & Euroair were a number of oil related charters that operated through Teesside in the
80's! EMB110 Bandeirante's G-CTLN & G-HGGS were the aircraft on this evening's visit,
operated with Euroair until it unfortunately crashed near Inverness November
Tuesday 23rd November. Not often you
get two types of Falcons on the ramp at Teesside together, D-CBUR
Falcon 10 is seen parked next to the big bother F-BOXV Falcon 20, while a
Dan Air HS748 G-ARRW waits its next passengers!
Saturday 11th December. Not the best
shots!! "But hey" not every day we get a Concorde in Teesside!! The first
visit of the supersonic airliner at Teesside as G-BOAF arrived to do a
supersonic charter in between doing subsonic flights from and to Heathrow!
Saturday 18th December. Two aircraft
going no where in a hurry!! G-AXCP BAC 1-11 was leased for a short time to
British Midland from Dan Air and parked up for the weekend, while British
Midland Viscount G-AZNC was stored, and eventually became part of the fire
school here at Teesside!
