My trip to UK via Amsterdam

A couple of weeks ago my wife flew out on Etihad via Sydney to join me here in Abu Dhabi for a few days before jetting off to Manchester via Amsterdam on KLM A330 from AUH.

I spend a couple of days spotting at Manchester,Barton and finally Amsterdam and even though the weather was bad in Holland on both occasions with fog on arrival and heavy rain on departure the trip was good with some pixs to follow.

Here a couple of pictures at Amsterdam Airport on the 9th October

 Followed by a trip to Manchester Barton Aerodrome on the 5th October.

And finally a trip to Manchester Ringway on the 6th October
