                According to the official updated schedule on the official web site, it is NOT going to Mumbai. The Indian stop is now New Delhi. The date it arrives at DEL is Apr 19.

                  Damn It !!!

                  Would've been difficult enough clicking her at BOM even if it would've come, New Delhi aaah forget it, cant risk getting whopped by the police there.

                        I am determined to get at least ONE shot in the DB from Islamabad Airport!! I have my 100-400mm and have just ordered a 2x teleconverter. I know there will be enough light to allow me 'some' decent shots from the rooftops or get locked up!!

                        As for clicking her it will prob be a big no no. I tried to get some shots around the perimeter last year. The Army guard the whole perimeter, there is a post like every 100 yards. So NO chance. Only possible shot is from rooftops.

                            As you can see my shots, I do frequent trips to Heathrow from Manchester on a Saturday or Sunday. It is a 530 mile round trip to be precise. Barring torrential downpours on Sunday, I will be there .

                              I would love to see shots of her when it makes the torch relay tour. Hopefully weather will be nice at LHR on that day. Ok, pardon me for asking this, but are these flights commercial flights?
