This is my first report, and pretty much my first proper urbex trip with photography. Visited with wevsky and space invader - thanks to wevsky for letting me tag along. :)

I know this site has been done a good few times, but I just wanted to share my pictures.

Now for the history. This is a Boeing 747-200 built and delivered to Kuwait Airways in 1982. It is registered N309TD, a number it was assigned when it first came to Manston. It is currently owned by an American company who bought it for its scrap value. A search online revealed it was previously registered 9K-ADD, and was repeatedly leased to Garuda Indonesia Airways.

This aircraft arrived at Manston two years ago. A few months after arriving it was towed across the road to the aeroplane 'graveyard' where there are four aircraft at the moment.

Now for the pictures, enjoy! :)
