'Port Hawkesbury'

Along time ago, possibly late 60’s early 70’s, I was a ships agent working for a company called Scottish Ship Management Ltd.

During this time I was involved in providing normal agents work for a ship called ‘Port Hawkesbury’ owned at the time by CP Shipping, Canada.

She was the first 250,000 D/W vessel to discharge at Finart, Firth of Clyde, Scotland.

Are any members aware…

Comments on photographs

Come on guys and gals we all like a wee bit of encouragement and it doesn’t take too long to make a wee comment, or even a click on ‘I like’

A reciprocal comment should at least be the norm.

Listening to New York and Newark air traffic.

I have read that some members are disapointed with the feeds from New York sectors.

Tonight I listened on line to the following, and was really not surprised to hear the vast amount of aircraft at these airports,as opposed to what we see on planefinder.net.

This is not a moan but if you like to hear air traffic control follow this.
