Cracking photos Rob! I'd love to see your pics from November when 108 (and 106) retired! I need to get a better lens (and learn how to use my camera!) to get some better shots!!

Hi Rob.

'Togging' is simply a shorthand for photographing, a 'tog' being a photographer.

From my experience Photobucket compresses images horribly, rendering even the sharpest image soft. Of the free image hosting services I've found Flickr to be the best - even though I'm not sure about the new layout.

That's very useful to know Mike, I have always used photoucket.

Having always enjoyed the quality of so many pictures posted by other I just put it down to using my phone camera. I think Flickr will be investigated when time allows.

The engines have had to come out as part of the contract... they will go back.

Never had a GE's wallet. It was always empty when I got back but I always had a smile on my face :-)

Just been taking the IFR nozzle off 808. Cannot understand that as they want to keep her running. Plenty of nozzles elsewhere.
