    Out near Oxford today, saw Huey helicopter with a US reg. Then later on an Antonov An-2 biplane. Been great if they were flying together.

    Had the pleasure of seeing several live firsts for me: Typhoon, A-400, Alpha Jet's and Rafale- All rather rare in the USA.

    Went by Langley Air Force base on April 21st as there was a multi national exercise going on and the Patrouille de France was there on a stop as well. I watched a noon sortie start up and fly out: 4 FAF Rafale's (3 twin seaters), 4 Typhoons, @6 F-15's, @8 Raptors and 4 T-38's. Other Raptors in the pattern. Was very close to the Rafale's on start up- they have a very distinct "organ" like howl during part of the start up sequence.

    Interesting to see the differences on departure. Rafales and F-15's used afterburner for departure to about 500' agl. F-22's and Typhoons used dry thrust. The F-22 seemed to gain energy/speed so much more quickly and effortlessly than the others. F-15's were the loudest. All used a similar takeoff profile, were airborne in similar distances, and used a right had departure. Very neat for me.

    Today at 12.30 I saw the sun bleached Gazelle XW844 at the Vector Aerospace park that I'm sure is ex Royal Navy helicopter maintenance hangars.

    A pair of yellow prop planes doing aerobatics together for about 15 minutes over Reading this afternoon. Does anybody know anything more about them?

    Ah, I wondered what it was, I only caught a brief glimpse as it flew directly over head me at Rayleigh Weir. Heading South

    Last Wednesday when I visited Tangmere I was treated to a flypast by a pair of Mustangs and today when I visited I saw a Spitfire flypast. Unfortunately it was a fraction too far away to tell if it was a single seat or the TR9 from Goodwood.

    On Sunday lucky enough to see Peter Teichman's P51 over LIttle Missenden, and a Huey in the distance as well.
