Now thats a good interesting photo.

Ill be on one of those Emirates planes in a couple of months, did you know that they have cameras one in the nose of the plane and one looking down so you can see the outside view from them on you seat back video screen.

Shot this a couple of weeks ago from my bedroom window in Winstanley. Just as I was putting my camera away I glanced through the window and saw seven different aircraft in various parts of the sky over what is one of the largest housing estates in the country. It is inevitable aircraft will fly over heavily populated areas, but there are times when I wonder if we are reaching saturation point over Wigan.

Nice one. No ash in sight!


Comment by Jon on 26th May 2011 at 11:31
Great photo. Like the other plane in the background too.


Comment by David on 26th May 2011 at 11:40
The airline might be interested in this excellent shot!


Comment by Dave C on 26th May 2011 at 12:11
Fantastic photo as usual


Comment by Thomas Birch on 26th May 2011 at 13:48
Nice shot Jeff get more pictures on .


Comment by rebian on 26th May 2011 at 16:43
Good shot & exposure


Comment by John Morris on 26th May 2011 at 17:02
Nice shot Jeff. Pertaining to your comment, when I lived in Winstanley I took our dog out about 08:45 when the planes were arriving from America. One morning I heard a roar of jet engines being put onto full power and looked up to see a commuter jet in a tight turn and a Lockheed Tri-star looking like it was going to gobble it up. Scary!

Nice photo Jeff.
Are you any relation to Peter Haydock, who came from Abram.


Comment by Dave Johnson on 26th May 2011 at 18:15
Mick, the nose cameras were in use on First Choice long haul jets eleven years ago.


Comment by tricia on 26th May 2011 at 18:58
I must say as I don't like all of this new fangled technology - give me a steam train any day.


Comment by jeff haydock on 26th May 2011 at 19:40
Yes Ken, Peter was my cousin, i lived in Bickershaw until I got married.


Comment by dot on 26th May 2011 at 20:40
Brilliant, clear shot with great interest. Well done.


Comment by John on 26th May 2011 at 21:20
Jeff, was your father a HGV driver and was his name Don?


Comment by jeff haydock on 26th May 2011 at 22:17
Yes John.


Comment by Jean F (Wales) on 26th May 2011 at 22:28
Wow what a picture! Beautiful.
We get a lot of lowflying aircraft here as we are in a lowflying area . On a wednesday, especially when the local market is on ! they frighten the visitors to death !
These are the RAF training planes and they make one helluva noise when they come over you .....you dont get any warning...they are so fast....and quite scary.


Comment by Shirl on 26th May 2011 at 23:58
Taken from your bedroom window? Wow, fantastic, on many levels.


Comment by John on 27th May 2011 at 14:07
Thanks Jeff, when Bickershaw was mentioned and you're name, I just put two and two together. Don drove a DAF artic for Kwik Save, reg PDM 73V.


Comment by Ron D on 27th May 2011 at 15:54
A bit of good photography.


Comment by Ken Eden on 27th May 2011 at 18:49
I played in a band with Pete 1969 - 1975. Fond memories.


Comment by John on 28th May 2011 at 12:59
Tricia, have you seen the steam train on page 24, passing through wigan North-west station...lovely.
