Rare sight of a servicable Merlin over Bournemouth just now.  At most shows this year I went to, the damned thing broke... lol

BAe 146 did a couple of missed approaches at Doncaster today.

I didn't get the Reg but I think it may have been the Met research ones as it had a Blue fin.

I tried to get some gen of the RHADS forums but there was nothing there today.

I did find this though which is well interesting  ;D

About 45 minutes ago, something very large and very slow going overhead (Dunnington, North Yorks). No idea whatsoever what it was, as the cloud is thick. I realise this is not very interesting :)
Thx,
