The Beluga XL at Hawarden Airport

My first visit to Hawarden Airport to witness the Airbus Beluga/XL aircraft.  It is a very odd looking aircraft and yes it does really conjure up an image of a flying whale!!!! Manged to see two aircraft XL2 and number 5. From land on to launch there is a turn around time of about 60-90 minutes at Hawarden,  to be loaded with Airbus wings and other parts which are flown from Broughton to France. Here are some of the images (heat haze may affect a couple)
