P Is For Plane

Amongst those planes is a Gloster Meteor.

Coventry Airport 

Yes, Coventry does have an airport.  No major passenger flights come and go from this airport, but today there was a special departure heading for a museum in Cornwall.  In the photo below is a small jet going to the left (just before lifting off).




It is a Royal Air Force Gloster Meteor T7.  It is described as being the world's oldest twin-engine jet that is still airworthy.  Built in 1949, it has been spending the last 20 years being restored.

Since this might work for a 'P' for ABC Wednesday, I am slipping this in a day early.  For more 'P' photographs, please follow the link to - ABC Wednesday.

Terrific old plane - what great timing too (mark of a photographer:), it's not easy seeing planes like this here. A nice choice for P!

i watch with anticipation when planes take off, and the excitement when it lands.

Lulu - I was going to pass on P but then thought if I was at the airport, why not. I am amazed I got anything...I was miles away. Sweet comment...thank you.

Luna - I am the same :).
