What’s flying over your house #3

At 1530 today I heard something approaching and went out expecting to see an Alpha Jet because it was not very noisy and was surprised to see a Mirage 2000 at about 1000ft tootling  along fairly slowly heading west.

Are they allowed to have NOTAMs nowadays?  Would have thought they had to be called NOTAPs, Notice To Air People.

Just now, G-ILDA two seat Spitfire, over Swanage and Studland.

 

 

What better way to spend a beautiful evening than a flight in a Spitfire...?!

I did a beer & other drinks delivery to RAF Coningsby Officers Mess this afternoon. It was Families day today.

So Relatives and guests of those serving there could be invited to see the base and watch the flying display.

I then went up the road and delivered to the Leagate pub.

So I got to see, at low level*, the BoBMF Dakota, Hurricane and a couple of Spitfires, plus a loony in a Pitts special trailing smoke and doing some mad aerobatics.

Not to mention the Reds (I live up the road from Scampton and they regularly threaten our chimneys!).

Families day was always good when I was in the mob, Your nearest and dearest could see what you did and where you worked.

 

*The Dakota was stooging around at about 200 feet. A lovely sight.

Not my house but the Austrian holiday chalet I'm currently occupying - an AH-1 Cobra! Most likely a Red Bull one.

 

Cheers,

@PhantomBigStu If the weather has breaks you have Turkish C-130E 01610 heading your way from the E

Clouds holding firm though least it has stopped raining and little bit of suns peaking through, seems to be a quiet military day, only can see a US rivet joint and RNAF f-16 over the Netherlands edit and a RNAF kc10 of the dutch coast

Can see 51 going up the coast on ADSB, dunno what happened to 41 unless its already landed at MZ, guessing the rest will go the same way, avoiding me, cheers for the heads up.
