What's flying over your house? Thread #2

Recommended Posts

Lots of Chinook, Apache and Merlin action over the last 2 days, with the odd Wildcat thrown in. Exercise on Salisbury Plain maybe?

Had a couple of Apaches go over yesterday afternoon, so nothing out of the ordinary.

Being on the flight path between Middle Wallop, Odiham and Bramley, I see the odd one everyday, and Chinooks all the time, but was getting at least one an hour from 0600 to about 2000. Maybe see a Merlin once a week but seen several both days, not moaning I love it, but it is unusual.

@Airgunner it's rare that I don't get at least one Apache fly over, going roughly east-west or vice-versa. After wondering where they were coming from, I decided to track one on ADS-B and they're coming from Wattisham and going to Middle Wallop. My village just happens to be right on the flightpath.

 

Very occasionally I'll get a Chinook or a Lynx or more often, a civil helicopter.

A FIN! Shock, horror. First time I have seen one around here in years, apart from the flypast last year, and probably the last time I will ever see one in the air.

ZJ186 (an Apache) has just flown over, probably off to Middle Wallop. I noticed on ADS-B that ZJ692 (Sentinel R.1) was more or less overhead at the same time, but at 41,000ft.

An F35B just gone overhead on approach to Leeds-Bradford. First time I have seen one do this, although Tornados were fairly regular visitors doing touch and go's. Very noisy and sounds quite different from Tornado or Typhoon.

Not long had an An-12 fly over. Well, it wasn't exactly *over*, as it was some five miles south and at 20,000ft, but I still heard the blighter!

Tipsy Trainer G-AISA flew over earlier this afternoon. A charming, little aeroplane!

A pair of Apaches quite low over Rothwell (the West Yorkshire one) heading southwest. Not common around here compared to the Chinooks.

A USAF KC135 doing touch and goes at Waddington late morning today.

Not quite overhead but a couple of hundred metres to the north, two Mirage 2000s ( the first this year ) heading west. Due to the lack of foliage on the surrounding trees, I watched them turn hard left just before the local town and head off south.

Two USAF V 22 Osprey! Very rere in Kraków, Poland. First time I've seen them in air (in both configurations).  Not exactly over my house, but over my working place. Some people made photos of  them:

Used to live under the flight path of the bbmf was always great to see them go over on the way to shows, now it’s just the local plod that circle over my area at random intervals  wasting fuel

Apparently the farewell vic of Tornadoes over our house in Wirral yesterday and heading at high speed for Wales (Valley - Mach Loop??).

 

I say apparently because I was at work and missed them 🤬

I have ADS-B open and will be tracking the Tornado vic as it flies between Duxford and Thurleigh, in the hope that it goes over (or near) my house. It's a slight possibility, but I won't be holding my breath!

No idea at all! I was just going to check for anything that might look likely.

We're on! ZD744, ZD716 so far, callsign TRNDO02 for '744.

 

And ZA601.

 

Or maybe not! The serials keep changing on ADS-B!

 

Well, I can say for sure that they didn't fly overhead! The flight tracker proved to be utterly useless, so I stood at the window with my bins, just in case.

Not a sausage! 🙁

I must admit I've not seen a thing! Got bogged down with a work thang. I can't see anything at all!
