Missed seeing and hearing the Dakota today :( :(.
Was due to be heading over Springfields Gardens, Spalding at 1300, but must have gone early.
Weather at the time, about 2 miles away from Spalding, was grey and rainy.

EDIT: Dakota was spotted at about 1015 over Spalding.

Well done Pam. No aircraft seen here today. Last time 558 came over my house was on 25 July 2008.

Visiting my daughter in Hampshire and went down to Gunwharf Quays at Portsmouth today ...

Sitting having lunch outside when my ears pricked up and suddenly a Spitfire went over really low towards the Isle of Wight - all I had time to see identification wise was the pointed style fin with a low back and the growl sounded more Griffon than Merlin so I suspect a late mark ...

I looked at the BBMF schedules and don't think it was one of theirs so research suggests is may have been G-SPIT MKIVe

Where was it off too I wonder ... closely followed - going in the same direction - by a low flying Wokka ;) :p

XH558 Spotted running parallel to my garden in Pinchbeck heading to RAF Waddington.
Thank you very much for the flypast.
First time seeing her fly since 2 July 2011 at RAF Waddington.

As soon as I saw the flight route, I realised that 558 would be paying you a long overdue visit :) so pleased for you :D

Thank you. If I had gone to where the route was planned for, I would have missed her. She came approx 200 feet or so away from me \:D/ \:D/ (only a guess, but closer than the 2000+ metres away that the route had it).

These were taken by my brother. First time he had seen her fly.
It was the second time she had been over, or near, my house.
First time was 25 July 2008.

does anyone know why the ospreys keep fling north over York (towards Leeming) usually early evening.
we quite often have a pair going north and then usually a single returning

Very noisy strange looking things.

On way home from village and spotted a Spitfire and Hurricane flanked by two Typhoons over flying the WAVE, followed a bit later by Lancaster, Spitfire and Hurricane and one of the Typhoons, the other Typhoon was behind and to the right following the formation, again appeared to fly over the WAVE, hopefully someone will have photos.
