Freebird Airlines 638


Recommended Posts

The pilots may have been trouble shooting a problem or waiting for instructions from the company.  

Either way it was probably necessary they stayed close to the Airport if there had been no reason they would have been on their way and not wasting fuel!

I used to live adjacent to the Airport in Norwich and enjoyed the comings and goings, nothing like listening to a jet engine at take off thrust it never got annoying for me, even the Helicopters coming and going you get used to.  

Screaming kids and barking dogs however drive me insane!

Used to work at Ferranti Wythenshawe, about 1/2 mile from one end of Manchester airport, all machining had to stop at certain times, this was when the BOAC Super VC10s were winding their engines up for full throttle take off, after a few days working there you didn't notice any noise, even Concorde, not because you'd gone deaf, but you just got used to it! Went to Coltishall one year with my family, I was the only one not woken up by the engines!
