    The 3 Swiss Classic Beech 18s stopped off at Cambridge presumably to refuel. Looks like they are also booked to appear at the Portrush Airshow in NI this weekend

          I saw two Vampires flying in formation towards Hatfield yesterday. Anyone know why?

                Mrs Rabbit Leader reports what she thinks might have been a Hurricane flying over Helensburgh and the Clyde 2 or 3 times this afternoon. Id have thought Hurricane unlikely but while aircraft identification isnt her favourite pursuit, shes been to enough airshows with me to know what a Merlin sounds like. Anyone able to put me out of my misery and let me know what it might have been? Guy

                    Today over Farnborough we have been graced with Spitfire G-PRXI going south followed by Portuguese scheme Harvard G-BGPb went Duxford-Goodwood and return. Chipmunk WK514/G-BBMO visited Blackbushe

                      Blenheim just on the edge of the Denham zone, routing SW to Goodwood, 5 mins ago

                      Saw the Harvard out and back yesterday, maybe bringing back the Spit pilot after flight to Goodwood.

                          Lysander and Harvard wingtip to wingtip overhead Amersham, heading Goodwood .2 mins ago Expect some neat air-to-air photos !

                            Harvard over W.G.C. twice this morning - presumably there and back again. Returned flying S.W. at 15.25 hrs, accompanied by Lysander, which I assume to be the recently flown ARC example. Also late a.m. spotted C130 flying W. at reasonably low level - they are a bit unusual around here.

                              Lysander V9312/LX-E and the Portuguese Harvard just come over Farnborough en-route Goodwood, had the Blenheim over at lunchtime, Harvard must be the crew ferry?

                                Coulson's new 737 phoschek bomber has been doing drop test/certification all week at the local airfield.





                                If anybody ever tells you anything about an aeroplane which is so bloody complicated you can't understand it, take it from me: It's all balls. RJM.

                                      Saw a pair of Stearmen over Lightwater on Saturday, probably whatever flavour sponsorship the wingwalkers are now.

                                      And on Sunday, something highwing with a Gipsy Major, probably an Auster. Receding rear view spotted from a pub garden near Woking.

                                        See the Lancaster is heading south, just crossing the M4 between Newbury and Swindon.

                                        Planefinder says it's flying from Lahore to Riyadh!

                                          P-47 Thunderbolt "Nellie" just gone low over Alton, Hants, heading South East. Glorious sight and a great noise!
