1800 hrs, I was aware of an unusual sound and flight radar showed that it was a Ukraine Air Alliance Antonov 12 UR-CZZ at 26000 feet, but I was not going out to look for it in this rain. On it's way to Shannon apparently.

Passing over Swindon at 1810
I said "no more passwords" and look what happened!

Should we re-name this the "not spotted" thread then?

Crikey I hope not, I work at North Harbour in Pompey and continuously hear Wokkas and Merlins buzzing around...copter that is, not the RR V12!

BA 747-400 G-CIVL has just landed at Heathrow.

2 hours ago she was in Cardiff having the finishing touches to a 16 day C2 check.

That's 28 days to pull her apart, inspect her and put back into service (I heard the RAF have had a Sentry in the Hangar at Waddington for 7 weeks on a C check and are now talking about extending the service!)

I wonder where she'll be this time tomorrow?

Bit late but I've been busy with the day job.

I had a drive up North on Friday and saw my first A400 outside of an airshow - looked like it was going into Brize.

Bit later on I spotted Wokka up near Towcester.

The 747 which I worked on on Wednesday went to JFK on Thursday and Dallas Fort Worth on Friday....
I'll never give up on the dream!

Wokka going North just now
