One from yesterday.

A bright yellow Ken Wallis autogiro in low over the field next to the A5 just after I left the Hinckley office.

Looks like the Autogiros are doing their bus impression (see Mikes post)
I'll never give up on the dream!

Anyone know what took from Hurn just now (just before midday)? I was too far away to identify it.

Saw what looked like an AWACS over South Manchester about 18:20 tonight. Any thoughts where it had come from/was going? Thanks.

NATO 31 had been at East Mids and NATO 30 to Brize Norton. Not sure what they were up to.

17.10 on way back from Waddo to Waltham(Grimsby) , near Caistor,  a VERY low flying Hercules flying South. Coming very slowly straight towards us in the car. Instinctively said B....y Hell - nothing else ! Hope it wasn't in trouble. I know this area is a designated low flying area but this must have been at about 100ft
