Saw C130, two C17's and one KC135 off Lakehurst Base, New Jersey, whilst riding roller coasters at Six Flags Great Adventure theme park.
I said "no more passwords" and look what happened!

Did anyone spot the B2 Spirit flying round our area (Lincolnshire) last night or was it too stealthy  :)

B2 Stealth bomber flying over Wootton Bassett at about 2000 feet heading south.

It was difficult to see, it being stealthy and all....  ;D

It's been like a real airfield around here lately.

Tornado GR4 yesterday evening and an E3D did a couple of missed approaches this afternoon.
I'll never give up on the dream!

Hoy, I was going to post that! I was out running my bike engine and didn't have my camera on me - DOH!!!!!
Quite a sight.

EDIT NOTE ------- Just realised the post below is 17th and 1650. 'Spotted' just now is today, 18th and 1750.

Where do you live then Scampton61 ? I'm overlooking the Roman Road/The Oaks roundabout.
