"I said right rudder" taken at Leeds/Bradford airport in UK. The airport is notorious for the runway slope and hump, together with a permanent built-in cross wind because of it's alignment. Oh, and yes it is landing, it doesn't come out so well in the still, but we watched the tyres and leg distort as it touched down! Taken with my EM1 mkii with the Panasonic 100-400, processed in Affinity, Topaz sharpening and de-noise.

I like turboprops. My first memories of flying in them were the Fairchild (Fokker) F-27s that Aloha Airlines used way back. I also flew in USCG C-130s up to and over the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands to Kure Atoll and Midway Atoll back when I was a marine biologist for the state. Still among the most fuel-efficient of aircraft.

Interesting attachments to the skids. To prevent sinking too deep in snow? Some sort of trapeze hanging below too.
I expect you are correct about the skid attachments.
Given the Helicopter is the only way up or down, they carry dogs, mushers, tourists, food, equipment, garbage etc. up and down (not so much up for the garbage I expect), so the trapeze may have some function with regards to getting all the gear up and down.

Hi Richard, I think I have probably flown in this Britannia, I remember flying with Monarch many times out of Luton to Belfast, also to RAF Gutersloh, and RAF Wildenrath late 60's and also early 1970's. The military often chartered from Monarch and later from Britannia Airways. If you had a wing seat you could look out and see the rivets in the wing revolving in their holes.

Hi Stan,

there aren't many left in the UK unfortunately. There's one at Cosford painted in RAF Transport Command colours which looks in need of some TLC. There's one at Kemble (where I'm hoping to visit once we're allowed out again).

This one at Duxford is beautifully preserved.

Here's the colour version:

Those were not taken with my Olympus cameras, it still fits in with the theme of the thread.

Taken at the Punta Gorda Airshow, November 2019.
