      SOFIA went off for a check ride yesterday afternoon. Apparently the check ride involved beating up March AFB for 10 minutes or so. Two passes along the runway, then over the freeway overpass at the North end of the field & a 3rd off to the East side behind the airfield buildings. I'd guess 747's beating up airfields is kinda rare..

        Saw this today, but not quite this close, saw the rocket trail from a few miles away.

                  Saw the wonderful Blenheim Mk I fly over St Albans in the direction of Hatfield today, quite low and with a lovely roar of Bristol engines.

                    Having spent the weekend at Scout camp near Brize Norton saw Voyager and Globemaster , when we got back to the hut in Thame a Spitfire flew over, always a sound I want to hear.
