Tuesday 5 August 2014 - China Southern Airbus A330-243 B-6058 operates final charter to Beijing

China Southern Airlines Airbus A330-243 B-6058 rotates off a very wet Runway 15
operating the third and final flight of a short series of charters to Beijing, China....

.... it had earlier arrived in the half light at 0542 nearly an hour early!

.... and had a "Follow Me" vehicle to ensure it found its way

.... to Stand 56C

.... while it may have been a grey start to the day a couple of hours later it was sitting in the sun!

This flight was taking the second group of Chinese tourists home after their UK holiday....

.... China Southern Airlines Flight number: CZ3002

Unfortunately by the time Airbus A330-243 B-6058 was on its way to depart the rain had arrived....

.... so as it lifted off Runway 15 it produced a cloud of spray

.... before climbing away to Beijing - again nonstop from Birmingham!
