We recently had a day out at the new Photography show in Birmingham.
We stayed over night at the Holiday Inn located near the airport and I took this shot late that evening.
We went to the top of a multi story car park to try and get some good views but there were other building blocking our view. We seemed to be waiting ages for the next aircraft to take off so I decided to look around for plane's that were parked around the perimeter.
Here below is a shot of a Monarch airlines aircraft that was being moved into one of the hangers for maintenance.
After waiting what seemed like an eternity for aircraft to take off an army of vehicles descended on the runway. It was a little shocking to see all these big wagons and low loaders instead of aeroplanes.
Unknown to us the last flight of the evening had already taken off, and the next flight was scheduled for 7am in the morning.
These vehicles were on route across the runway for general maintenance work whilst the airport had closed for the night.
