I'm cheating again!

AN-26 LZ-ABR on the pan @ Doncaster.

Does not look like this anymore though...

Had a paint job.

Well @ this time of year I don't get out much!

I'll never give up on the dream!

While driving East on the 27. Wokka seen over Fareham heading North at circa 4.15 today
I don\'t want a second childhood. I\'m still enjoying the first one.





I\'m retired.
I was tired yesterday, and I\'m tired again today.

Me again!!!

Actually saw the AN-26 flying.

Also saw the Duxford Buchon (Spanish ME-109) and Spitfire xvi displaying over the airfield  ;D

I'd seen them a lot closer while they had been in the hangar for BAe's graduation but the display was a real bonus!
I'll never give up on the dream!

Wonder if it was the same one I've just seen at 1740 heading South, maybe on his way back to base after visiting Imjin Barracks in Gloucester.

Wokka directly over my house in Bromsgrove this morning, not an uncommon site
Positive thinking helps!

SAR SeaKing crossed Heathrow south to north at 1105, heard the engine and considered it somewhat unusual - possible concerned with some house removals?

Not one, but two Chinooks passing west London over the Thames, towards Central London, 1026 passing Hampton.

(I live about two and half miles from the Thames, and the clearest view from my place is to Hampton (between the rooves), four miles; details obtained from http://www.freemaptools.com/how-far-is-it-between.htm)

Two from yesterday.

Queens flight 146 in the circuit @ Doncaster and a very noisy Griffon @ high level about 10 mins later.
I'll never give up on the dream!
