SPOTTED ! Flying low over M1 at 11.45 am today; lining up to Brunty, one 747, looking very good indeed. And it DID slow the traffic down, not often you see one crossing the M1 that low :D
made my day, there isnt often cause for joy on the M1 these days !!

Someone said the Reds are displaying (practice) at Kirton tomorrow (Friday) morning.
Anyone know if this is correct?

Hearing a RUMOUR that a German F-4 is coming to RIAT to DISPLAY.


It's hearsay off Facebook. I'd love it to be true though!

This is sad to hear, Paul......

She's been a fixture in your country for
