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...

Had something of a mini air display over the house this afternoon.

Four warbirds flying out of Sywell a few miles away having some formation practice.

And as I'm on a rest day with not much else better to do, I grab the camera and with my dad in tow we jump into the car and head over to Sywell.............

click here for the photos......

Heres a sample in case the link screws up again...................


Lets just say im rather made up to have this lot on my doorstep. Some of them are now resident at Sywell including the Grace Spitfire ML407.

I've used your link Martin and all I see when the page opens up are the words '36 images' and nothing else ---
