SMOKEY SUNRISE TOUCHDOWNS- Up Close Landings- Runway 05R- Manchester Airport

Another beautiful morning across the UK saw perfect conditions for a trip to the airport. With the longest day of the year approaching and with sunrise times now before 5am it offers a great opportunity to catch some of the early morning arrivals as they arrive from their various long haul destinations. The airport comes alive between 6am and 10am with a steady stream of arrivals, making it one of the busiest periods of the day. During this time most of Manchester's 'heavy' aircraft arrivals arrive, with all the flight from the USA arriving during this time in addition to the number of Eastern and middle eastern arrivals. Runway 05R opens promptly at 06:30am, just in time for the start of the heavy arrivals.

We returned again to one of our favourite spots at Manchester, a location which offers stunning views of aircraft touching down on runway 05R. Coupled with perfect lighting it was a morning which did not disappoint.

Stay tuned for Part 2 of arrivals later in the morning.
