Thompson Dreamliner take off from RHMMFT airport.  

I think I'll stop spotting these now as they are just very boring and look like fat 737's.

Apparently I saw a Royal Flight of Qatar airbus yesterday (no way to tell what it was - just a big white Aeroplane)  Very nice inside (allegedly)

On Wednesday I was at Cotswold Wildlife Park and spotted a VC10 and 2 Hercs at low level, oh and a few animals.

Merlin very low over our house in Abbeymead Gloucester just now (15:24) heading North and banking to the East slightly. Probably heading for Imjin barracks.

VERY LOUD noise at 0900 this morning. Looked and looked but a lot of cloud. Definitely not a large aircraft, I thought maybe a Typhoon.

Then out of the clouds into a large break appeared a U2 rapidly climbing pretty much over our house in Abbeymead Gloucester. No guesses as to where she was headed!

Not spotted, but heard.  Something has just made a heck of a racket at Hurn.  Wonder if the Tiffie stayed overnight?

Wokka heading in to land at what was RNAY Fleetlands, unfortunately it was flying straight and not doing anything like what the display team managed at Dunsfold! Not even a corkscrew approach to land  :P
