A plane over Dowson Road

Planes regularly fly over the rooftops of Dowson Road.

Many of them are getting ready to land at Manchester Airport but this one is heading towards the North and gaining height so is probably on an outgoing flight.

See more skies at Skywatch Friday.


  1. Interesting to see the row houses..I bet the planes are noisy...Happy Sky Watch and Merry Christmas

  2. I beg your forgiveness for my cutting and pasting my comment, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise.

    The magical elves that constitute my staff have demonstrated their lack of respect in either not showing up for work at all, or those that have all seem a little worse for wear (if you catch my drift). All they seem to do is sit around smoking cigarettes that, frankly, smell funny. In addition, they play cards and tell dirty jokes rather than do their jobs! Consequently, the reindeer are all filthy and out of shape.

    Despite my best efforts, the couple of chooks, arthritic wallaby and three peculiar wombats that I’ve drafted in just don’t cut it as replacements.

    Anyway, all the way down here at the bottom of the world (A.K.A. Tasmania), and from myself, Jen, Henry and Ezra, please have a Merry Christmas/ Winter Solstice/ Summer Solstice/ Hanukkah/ Festivus/ Ashura and a happy New Year!

    I hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs, your stocking is stuffed full of lots of tasty treats and not coal and that all your pumpkin pies/ prawn cocktails/ currywurst are all as tasty as can be!

  3. Interesting photo, the plane adds a dynamic element.

  4. An interesting counterpoint between the plane overhead and the street scene beneath.

    I hope your health is now more or less back to normal. Merry Christmas!

  5. Nice shot Gerald. They used to fly directly over my backyard on their way to a landing about 9 miles away. People complained about the engine noise so they stopped coming over our town and if they come over at all it is beyond the edge of town. Most are rerouted to a different landing strip so it is rare if one comes over nowadays.
