      This afternoon I saw a pair of F15s (almost certainly) flying over Salisbury at 2-4000ft. They came in heading east and turned to fly north probably to Boscombe Down. Does anybody have any info on them?

          Blue and Silver Moth (probably Tiger. though too high and too brightly illuminated to be sure) over Oxford at about 12.30.

                Around 12.30ish a familiar red Pitts Special performed a few aeros over the now-defunct Panshanger airfield before continuing on it's way, heading West. Reckon I know who that was.

                  I heard the Pitts, but it was over Codicote/Rush Green direction. It then flew over me in the direction of Panhanger. Had seen it Christmas Eve flying the the other direction. What's left at Panshanger?

                    2 rusting wartime hangars, a derelict building constructed for Nat Somers to build the SK1, the very rusty hybrid T1/T2 hangar dating from 1960, a few wartime huts - and a security guard and his dogs to stop the place getting trashed by pikeys and the 4-wheel drive/motocross brigade.
                    It looks a bit desolate.

                      So sad! All aircraft gone, did they all get out under their own steam?

                        Some had been static for a fair while, I would think that they were roaded out or reduced to spares, but most were flown. The'temporary' hangers were disassembled and taken away- all this by the end of September.

                          Thanks 'Reg', I might have to have a wander up there and peak over the fence. I might walk along the footpath at the end of the runway andv see what's there.

                            There's a footpath at both ends of the runway, the one at the interesting end crosses the airfield entrance road at one point - hope they haven't blocked it off - and you also end up in a small wood, so be careful.

                              The main entrance was at the bottom right of the picture and the footpath goes from there straight up and you can see it also across the field.
                              The footpath at the bottom left of the picture also runs to the top of the picture.
