Twin fin,Twin radial over Corby ID?

Postby iainpeden on Sat 23 Sep 2017, 9:12 am

I have just seen (10 a.m.) a twin fin, twin radial engine a/c - about Anson size - flying west-east over Corby. It was accompanied by another light a/c.
A little far away to ID so if anybody can shed light on it I'd be grateful.

That makes sense. Does anybody know where it is based?

Sounds like G-BGKL, which is based at Leicester, I think.

Think it was the same day as the migs. I am looking forward to seeing the a/ c just restored at Spanhoe overhead.
