A Barrage of army (Puma's?) helecopters headed south this morning, pretty much over my house. I have never known or witnessed actions like this on a Saturday in all my years of plane spotting, unless there is a airshow but that only happens in the summertime here.

These are British military AW159 Wildcat helicopters, used by Army Air Corps and Royal Navy. Wildcat is an improved version of recently retired Lynx.

That would have been useful on this older thread, where the idea of seeing Military helicopters in the UK country side was considered evidence of a "UFO checking on a Crop circle". You sure there wasn't a Crop circle in your backyard?;)

If a screen grab counts as taking it myself this is a pretty great image of an aircraft and contrail on Google Earth. 45°03'39"N 23°34'56"E · 280 m
Zoom out for the full effect.

Belgian A400M, flight from Goose Bay Airport Newfoundland to Belgium unsure what airport, as its on decenct.

Anyway it passed quite close over my location at 19:02 BST with contrails at near enough 35,000ft and i managed quickly to get a few photos. Canon 450 with sigma 70-300 flat out.
The full flight and the close screenshot on ADSB for reference.
Nice to see a prop contrail!

So i had the fortinate viewing for the C17 (ZZ177) The Queen passing near here on the 13th September 2022.
Was a rush to do as i just got back in from work, turn on pc -Adsb on, Camera, take the shot! sorry for the quality.
Sigma 300mm Canon 450d
And note all inbound flights, was put on hold locally.
ZZ177. The C17 reg number 'read' this could be read as Lizz Aka Elizabeth just thinking out loud there.
Anyway, love or hate her, i saw the plane go by.
(err its, my Birthday on Monday 19th too - mini isolation again! most shops shut, ACE nice and quiet)
