Postcards from Europe

My parents have just come back from holidaying on the Greek island of Skiathos, sometimes referred to as the St Maarten of the Med. Being the good sort that my old man is, he got the camera out whilst waiting at the airport for the flight back to England and took some shots to snaps me what I was missing out on:

Selfies in front of the Thomas Cook Airlines A321
Captain only landings on the 1628m runway
Another Thomas Cook A321 in the heat haze
Enter Air 737, wearing Polish flags
Thomas Cook B757, the biggest type to land at the island

And again, from the port side
Germaina B737, the ride home
I also pinched a few other snaps from the SD card from his travels that I thought may be of interest to the browsers of the blog, mostly from Heathrow before the outbound flight back home.
