Edinburgh Airport


On Wednesday 23rd August, during a busy day sightseeing, I found half an hour to watch some of the various comings and goings from Edinburgh Airport. Knowing that 757s are slowly disappearing, the main aim of this brief visit was to catch United Airlines 757s, which continue to frequent Scotland. I was lucky enough to catch a pair, one of which was sporting United Airlines' newer livery.  

Despite the main viewing area offering generally backlit photos, the mound alongside the fence is seemingly the best place to catch the action. The Scottish hills make for a perfect backdrop, in my opinion.
