    Today, gazing to the skies from my work in the Gunby Hall Gardens, E. Lincs. BBMF Chipmunk sighted a couple of times, Osprey seen running out towards the coast and my first ever sighting of a Rivet Joint looking like heading for Waddington from across the Wash.

      This afternoon spotted a very bright yellow open cockpit autogyro, nicely low and slow, passing immediately North of Gunby Hall Gardens, E. Lincs and climbing slightly as routed away West.

      I did wave

          An Extra doing aerobatics about a mile ENE of my home.
          He practices regularly over the sparsely populated foothills of the mountain.
          I usually hear him more than see him.
          There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

            At about lunch time today I saw a helicopter flying over Reading that I'm sure was a Russian Mil 8/17, can anybody confirm or deny?

                    "What you must remember" Flip said "is that nine-tenths of Cattermole's charm lies beneath the surface." Many agreed.

                          Perhaps not Historic, but certainly unusual in these parts.... Spotted a Cessna Citation?, reasonably low level passing Gunby Hall Gardens E. Lincs 5:23pm routing due East towards the coast.

                            In the distance what looks like a 2 seat Spit heading S over the old Boreham disused airfield near Chelmsford, to Biggin, Goodwood?

                                  Over the last week I have been holidaying in Lincs and Yorkshire and have seen F16s, Typhoons and various civvie aircraft flying around. It makes a change from the usual and Alpha Jets, Hawks and AAC helicopters seen here on the Plain.

                                    Stearman doing aeros over the A12 Boreham Essex then departed to the East followed by what looked like a Tucano heading west at a rate of knots towards North Weald ?

                                      Two warbird type aircraft over Welwyn G.C. at 1710hrs this afternoon. Didn't catch them in time, they were receding fast into the distance, heading due West. Presumably out of Duxford, did anyone else see them? and where were they heading at that time of day?
                                      By the way, ZRX61, the whole point about a B2 is that you're not supposed to see it......
