I won't go into the individual aircraft, but the Queen's Birthday Flypast was spot on today, and Atlas did get an airing, along with numerous others. Very good formation in fair weather, with little wind.

Red Arrows just flew past heading north east, wingman put on smoke (red, blue then white), possibly for Bowden Hall Hotel, where they've stayed in the past over the RIAT weekend.

Spitfire/Hurricane over Newark approx 1-00

P7350 Spitfire Mk.11A performed a low approach and go around on runway 09 LJLA @ 13:20 (call-sign SPITFIRE01)

Could've been the same one

Oh dear Dee....... Spitfire has flat top to fuselage and if you see them, rounded wings; on approach two intakes underneath.
 Hurricane has "humped" back, squared wings; on approach one central intake underneath.

                           I will be asking questions later!

SPITFIRE heading SE over Broughton Astley at 1339 today! Could it possibly be the RR one from East Midlands ??

Do you think that would have been on the airport flight path?

Nope, she came over us after coming South from Cannock then we tracked Her as She flew South and did a Couple of Touch-n-Gos' at Staverton

Odd how it would come over the city.
