i would have thought they would have retired all them by now or was it on way to an airshow/museum.

Mr Mistoffelees,

stunning.

It must be about 5 years since I last saw one of those, there used to be two of them come up the dales on the same flight path and low and a real joy to see.

Something wrong with the photo.

I am not sure, not a photographer myself but it just does not look right. Have a closer look at the lighting the focus etc. or has anyone else any views, maybe I need to go to specsavers but to me there is something about it though I can't say what.

I think that there are two things which could seem a little odd.

The depth of the gap in the clouds seems rather large but I would not be able to comment on that because I have no knowledge of how they would behave in such a situation.

The second is that the propellers on the port outer engine have their blades lined up so that it looks as if there are only four blades instead of eight but the propellers contra-rotate which means that you will get them lined up in that manner in some photos.
