One of those great big trucks with a mad palm tree at either end has just parked itself up outside three hangar at Robin Hodd airport.
I'll never give up on the dream!

Apache doing some slightly strange patterns over Bournemouth this afternoon (low and slow, then holding in a circle for some time near Winton) . Came back after dark as well, doing the same route. A bit odd!

SAS Dauphin has been around (training I presume) this week and Queen's Flight came over yesterday. Still waiting to catch an A400M who are very active at the moment from BZN.

Not heard any F15s today, but they were out on Tuesday evening just below York.

Snapped this passing over our Gloucester house around 1605, very slow and quiet.
Made me think it might be one of those K134 tankers from Fairford maybe but looks more like a 747.

Looks like a BA747; why not check on the "history" on flight radar 24 for the time and area?
I said "no more passwords" and look what happened!

Definitely a British Airways 747 .. KC135s haven't got that nice a colour scheme
