Airseeker

#1 Post by Christel »

Spotted this the other day, we are seeing an increase in military aircraft - both surveillance and transport.

Two aircraft left Mildenhall earlier today - just heard them overhead, one was a Super Herc and the other was a Commando, no callsign. Going towards Cumbria.

Done, also spent time on Anglesey where it is very obvious that the pilots work set hours, at 8 in the morning it starts rumbling above. S'funny that :)
