I saw a De Havilland Dove flying over Chichester train station at about 5pm this afternoon. At least I think thats what it was, it was twin engined and looked to be a greyish light blue maybe whitey colour with RAF roundels. Specific I know.

On Saturday afternoon (18/9/10) Sally B came flying along the River Colne Essex on her way out to a show in the Netherlands.  That was a very welcome surprise!

TankBuster

Thanks for that , my brother saw her over Halstead and asked me if I knew where she was going and I didn't know, I can tell him now!

I saw the Lanc. over Terling (mid essex) on Sunday around 4pm heading north east, I assume on it's way back to coningsby from somewhere or other.

Vampire WZ507 was on the deck at Kemble at that time - is there another airworthy Vampire in the UK?

One of the Venoms might have been around... :?:

A Pair in close formation yesterday but I only got a fleeting glance as they were passing the Hi-Rise I was in and by the time we heard them they were almost gone.
