Saw this leaving Detroit on Saturday. Pretty sure it's Hairless Joe from the Yankee Air Museum.

I wonder if it was coming over here for the big D-Day drop tomorrow?
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

We keep seeing the Presidential helicopters over London. They've finally moved on from the CH-46 Sea Knight to the CH-47 Chinook. Seems strange to see US Air Force Chinooks over London.

I wish I'd been at Mildenhall this morning. The USAF flew 8x MC-130 and 4x MV-22 as a commemorative flypast.

No photos, sorry, but to-day is certainly RAF day.
There is an Atlas (A400) in the overhead doing instrument procedures.
Earlier there was a Phenom 100 doing circuits, first time I have seen one of them.  :thumbsup:

Couple days ago saw a C-5M coming in for a landing... it was a couple miles south of me and almost directly in line with the road I was driving down. Looked like it would land on it. Pretty amazing coincidence... one landed here some months ago but I missed it flying.

Also a couple of days ago: two C-295s a couple of minutes apart, following the lake shore when I was wasting time in a park right next to town center. Not very high. They appeared too suddenly over the trees, for trying to get pictures.

Was a day for private jet's, Citationjet, PC-24 and a Challenger 600. All arrived amongst strong wind and heavy rain so it's doubtful they were pleasure flights...
