Had a jolly along to Farnborough today to see some of the validations for next weeks Farnborough Airshow.

Most of the shots were taken from the Swan Inn/FAST roadway.

Enjoy.

This Boeing 737 called a Mayday and within seconds of landing, was surrounded by the emergency services.

Lucky bugger Nige!

Not being familiar with Civvie stuff - what's the deal with the 737 nosewheel? There looks to be something hanging off the back of it - is that a design feature or the cause of the mayday?

Probably a stupid question, but I just can't get my head around what's going on there huh
