BBMF Dakota was a fine sight to see over Waddington mid afternoon today.

Just had an A400 go over but still identifiable in the rapidly falling dusk , at height but still noisy and makes for a very rare military sighting of any kind in this part of the world these days.

Just found this thread. I drive from Boston, Linc's to Great Blakenham, Suffolk each day for work so I often have an air show as I drive. Yesterday (or Wednesday, I have a bad short term memory) I saw 2 pair of Tornadoes over Boston flying back to Marham. I shall miss seeing them. So far this month I have seen Apaches out of Wattisham so I am told, F-15 Eagles over Thetford from Lakenheath, C-17 Globemasters and something 707 based (maybe C-135) over Bury Stedmunds. I am fairly sure I saw a 747-400 over Thetford last week, it was low and slow but I might be mistaken. Plus I quite often see Typhoon/Eurofighters from Coningsby, C-130 Hercules (often very low) from I don't know where and V-22 Ospreys over Holbeach where I live. Looking forward to seeing the BBMF in the summer over Holbeach.

A friend of mine saw a trio of Chinooks over Holbeach at 14:15 yesterday. Any ideas what they were up to? I sometimes see what looks like a Gazelle heading out to RAF Holbeach but have no idea what 3 Chinooks would be doing over us.

Probably popped in for tea and cakes from the little red painted place just up from the services club.

Great tea and food in there and the ladies are a jolly bunch.

Saw the BOAC retro B747-400 overhead Wallasey this morning.  Cloudless skies and a clear view with binoculars.

I'm currently on a jobsite ( location withheld due to security ) My company is pouring Concrete for the new runway.

When suddenly, the hanger next to me opened up, and these started to appear...

I live on the last floor of a flat, and because of that, I'm able to see B738s and E190s flying overhead. I sometimes see and hear the MD-83.

I also get to see some helicopters.

Came over to the south of me quite high, I know they occasionally visit East Midlands, but I think that they are on freight runs as EMA is a sizeable freight/parcels hub.

A Tiger Moth flew over earlier this afternoon, taking advantage of the almost summer-like conditions over Bedfordshire today.

Interesting,  heard a 'different' sounding prop job a few times the last couple of weeks, always around 1430hrs, heading from West to East, both the last two Tuesdays, this Thursday as well.  Think at least one other occasion.  Only seen the cab once but was without my 'scope, assumed it was an A400 but could very possibly be an AN-26 I guess. although AN-12 would be a closer silhouette.
