A 'big C-130 with two engines' as my mum says, I think it might be a Transall? With 3 F-15s escorting it. Came over Hereford really low!

While walking the dogs, so must have been around 0900, two F15's were buzzing around over Abbeymead/Barnwood area of Gloucester after the NATO Summit flypast.

2300, ok it was dark but - Very Large aircraft gently climbing over our house in Abbeymead. It was so unusual, and so large, it had to be Air Force One going off after our daughters friend, Barack Obama, visited Stonehenge and got back to Fairford.

Why is he our daughters friend? Because she said he was a lovely man to talk to. She didn't mention David Cameron!!

2340 another large aircraft passed over after taking off from Fairford. Noisier than the one at 2300, maybe climbing harder?

Just a couple of F15's when they were returning to Fairford, as in my post below.

9-15ish last night while dog walking, AWAK going low East. On that note possibly going to Waddo. Where will the aircraft go when the runway is out of action?

Both Lancs heading south over Melksham at about 13.45.  Brilliant !
Makes up a bit for missing them at Sywell and Bournemouth.

Venom (could be a vampire but I was told it was definitely a Venom) low level beat up of Staverton (Gloucestershire) Airport at around 10:20.
Luckily I was outside at the XM569 forward fuselage section so saw it, other came running out of the museum to see what the noise was bit it was a little dot disappearing into the distance.
