What's flying over your house? Thread #2

Recommended Posts

Just had a formation of five choppers go over, a Sea King, two Chinooks followed by two Apache all in a V formation. Did several orbits over the Goodwood area then came straight over the house.

I'll upload some pics when I'm on the computer.

All hell broke loose at 15:22, thought the windows were going to shake themselves out of the frames.

Looked out to see...

What's happening with West Sussex? Are we being invaded?

We're suddenly getting a load of military traffic; SeaKing HC4, Chinooks and Apache yesterday, Herc's today.

Getting the Wattisham SeaKings around every day. I think they are getting as much time as they can before we lose them forever.

Had a very interesting visitor at Glasgow on Monday afternoon, an Aermacchi M-346A which as far as I can find out is based on a YAK-130 (this what I thought it was initially). I managed only a very poor pic out the office window just as it was about to go out of view.

The aircraft was registered CSX55152, I don't know where it's from or who's it is. It left at 1402 using the call sign "IAM152". So far I've told it was on its way to Iceland for crosswind tests and evaluation. One things for sure though it goes like s@&* off a shovel! I heard it on take off and turned to see it depart, the pilot kept it low and the acceleration and speed was blistering to say the least.

A new one for me, and impressive to boot.

Fishing on Slapton Sands last night and a Pusser's Merlin was lumbering about offshore early evening. I heard it before I saw it. Not as interesting as the Dipper I saw on the River Tavy yesterday, oh and the grey wagtail

It's an Alenia company demonstrator on it's way to Keflavik for crosswind landing trials. Should be on it's way back in about a fortnight.

Scarlet, Motley, thanks for the extra info, the pics on FC were a tad better than mine!

Defo a smart looking little machine, still can't get over how nippy the wee thing was on departure, certainly the quickest thing we've had through Glasgow in a while.

Thanks chaps.

What looked like a Fiesler Storch (or maybe a Criquet?) flew over Bletchley heading east at around 1440 - but not picked up on FR24

Barely had enough time to remove my lens cap, let alone muck about with settings on my camera, but these chappies were plodding along over Telford about midday today...

I never get tired of hearing the Wokka. Two together sounds even better!

We had a Griffin scoot over a couple of hours beforehand, but I didn't manage to get a shot of that. That no-doubt was from Shawbury, but I'm not sure where the Chinooks were heading to/from.

Daryl.

I live in Kidderminster and we probably get a pair of chinooks fly over once a month. Often wondered if they were going to or from the secret squirrel place in Hereford.

We also often see Hercs and other military helicopters going over.

A couple of months ago - actually probably more like 6 - we were walking the dog at Trimpley resevoir and we had a low level pass by the Red Arrows.

But the best I've ever seen was when I lived in Banbury, in the early '80's when we had a group of 4 B-52s fly over, very low, on their way to Upper Heyford; at least I thought it was Upper Heyford they were going to.

Been very busy round here with USMC egg whisks buzzing around. Saw a SuperCobra Monday then yesterday a UH-1 Venom and then a brace of Chinooks half an hour later. Only had my phone on me so not worth snapping pics as too far away.

Looking at Flightradar 24, just going overhead now is a Spring Airlines Japan (never heard of them until now) 737-800.
