Two Apaches just over the house and now flying around North Berwick area, Osprey coming up to join them from the south according to RadarBox.

And is this a Boeing Stearman Kaydet?

It does appear to be one, though I'm not sure about the Turquoise color ? I always pictured the blue being a bit darker than that unless pre-war.

It was notably active 5 minites at Staverton as I cycled past.

A Piper Cub.

I must have been there at the same time chap.

I saw exactly the same activity.

Had breakfast and sat outside in the car. You may have noticed the car. A little black MX5 with a middle age Midlife Crisis sat in it!

Pity we didn't meet up, we could have talked archery.

I'll look out for you in future!  Tee-shirt & shorts on a black hybrid bike.

Rather noisy military exercise going on over south Wales today, didn't get shots of everything but managed a few of the pair of Apaches as well as a Navy Merlin. Getting ready for target practice for people breaking lockdown I take it> Sadly missed the Gazelle(?) and Chinook that was flying about at hundred feet or so off the the ground!

Last week our local paper had a paragraph telling people of unusually heavy helicopter activity in the area due to a large military exercise. So far- nuffink. Did see a C-130 and heard an A-400 yesterday.

Yesterday at 1630 we had a short but fierce squall go through from the west and two minutes later a Mirage 2000 past very low heading west, presumably he’d just flown through it! That’s what I call earning your pay.

MD 900 Air Ambulance (G-CIOS) flew low over us sounding rough, and then landed a couple of streets away in a school playing field. It's taken off now after about an hour, so presumably not evacuating anyone. Didn't get a pic as it was chucking it down.

It's been an interesting few days over here near RNAS Yeovilton...

 

These chaps turned up on Friday, for some reason, every time the F-35s turn up to Yeovilton they fly low (~500 feet) over my house before going to Yeovilton (even though I'm a few miles from Yeovilton.

 

 

This was followed by "unusual" activity on the airfield over the weekend, 846 NAS sent a couple of their Merlins off, I think two 159's went too and a Chinook from 7 Sqn was about. Both squadrons had some "trade" this weekend in the Solent.

Just had a Typhoon directly overhead at lowish level, from the heading I am assuming  a touch and go at Leeds Bradford. First one I have seen for a while.
