Heading eastwards over Northants this morning was a Jet Provost T4, of all things!  :o

Unfortunately it was in silhouette so I couldn't see the scheme, but it was a most unusual type to see these days. There can't be more than 3-4 of them left flying in the UK!
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! :)

What charming little aeroplanes those Cirrus are!
 

Indeed, very attractive  :thumbsup:

Yes, very pretty.  :thumbsup:

Interesting, that the He-162 engine pod arrangement has made a comeback.

the US Army's 3rd Airborne Cavalry is on rotation in Europe to relieve the 1st CAV.
for the past 2 days, UH-60M Blackhawks that were being unloaded in Zeebrugges have been flying over my house heading for Chievres AFB.  :mellow:

Seen over my Niece's house.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Re: Seen Over Your Friend's House Saturday

While standing outside in the sun (!) on Saturday I heard the growl of a couple of big piston engines.

Thinking it may have been the P-51 and P-47 from nearby Sywell,  I searched the skies only to see two Spitfires in a 90 degree bank, one a Mk IX and the other a Mk XIV or XIX.

GLORIOUS!  :thumbsup:

In Carlisle again looking after elderly mother/mother in law (both over 90) but managed a day off to go into the Lake District. Several Hawks over Derwentwater and a very smoky Hercules over the Solway heading towards West Freugh. Now that regular air services have started from Carlisle airport, my mum reports the 9:40 am to Belfast over her house every weekday morning.

Early yesterday afternoon, three Canadian CF188 Hornets came over the house, breaking into the circuit here at Prestwick. They were accompanied by a CC150 Polaris (Airbus A-310 tanker). Don't know whether they are heading east or west, but they were noisy!

To-day the three CF188s departed, looked like they were heading east. Yesterday they were downwind right hand, breaking to land on the easterly rwy. which brought them over the house.
To-day PWK was on westerlies so they took of with a left turn out which yes brought them over the house again.

Pair of LC-130s flew over today, heading from NY to Christchurch, for their annual deployment. Pretty sure the first one was an old-school H, loud and low ( too cloudy to see her ) the second one, was definitely sporting the new 8 bladed props.

CANADA KICKS arse !!!!
