USMC Return to Edinburgh

After talking to a couple of other spotters on the mound at Ingliston, USMC Hercules used to be relatively frequent visitors in years gone by to Edinburgh. However it's been quite some time since they've last been here, so it was certainly a turn up for the books to see this classic KC-130T Hercules...

Prestwick Exotica

A couple more recent visits to Prestwick over the past month or so have yielded some exceptionally good movements. Last weekend saw four Afghan Air Force A-29B Super Tucanos stage through Prestwick for a quick fuel stop before heading onwards to somewhere altogether more hot and sandy. Quite a decen...

A-ton-ov Variety at Prestwick

Made my first trip to Prestwick Airport yesterday after a reasonable number of aircraft were scheduled to make an appearance. Thankfully I wasn't disappointed, with a fair few people turning up to see the arrival of the Volga-Dnepr An-124. Even the weather managed to relatively cooperate as well! 1)...

Thanks Dan. Good to see another example in Europe, fingers crossed it makes an appearance at an airshow in the future.

Spartan Executive over Edinburgh

Just had a Spartan 7W Executive (N17616) rumble over Edinburgh at about 10,000ft. Doesn't appear to be one of the UK-based examples and it appears to have been recently sold. Any know where it's off to, bit of a beggar to spot but looks like it was heading south.

Phil had one on a Northolt night shoot some years ago - when was that?
2013 I do believe was when it appeared at Northolt. The Sabreliner has actually been to the UK earlier this year, made a visit to Boscombe Down in April

Re: Sweden's Pocket Rocket at Edinburgh

It's certainly a characteristic little thing, especially with the bright yellow smiley face on the tail of the aircraft. It'll certainly be a shame if the aircraft isn't taken on by the Historic Flight, or at least placed on display at a museum.

Sweden's Pocket Rocket at Edinburgh

A surprise arrival at Edinburgh Airport yesterday was this Swedish Air Force Rockwell Sabreliner Tp86. Now the only one flying with the Swedish Air Force, it is also the only airworthy Sabreliner to based anywhere outside of North or South America. Sadly I missed its arrival, but was great to hear t...

Cleethorpes Beaufighter Wreckage

Well it looks like the Beaufighter wreckage that was discovered on the sands at Cleethorpes didn't last long (figuratively speaking). However, this article doesn't make it particularly clear if they moved the bomb away from the wreckage. https://www.grimsbytelegraph.co.uk/news/grimsby-news/royal-nav...

For some reason 18th May has always seen me get up to something aviation related. 2017 resulted in a visit to the de Havilland Museum at London Colney.

Arguably the finest aircraft ever conceived by de Havilland (although granted I am incredibly biased).

Re: 48hr Photo Comp: Helicopter Gunships

Most people take a chair with them to an airshow, some even go to the extent of using ladders to get a better vantage point. This lad combined the two and is clearly having a jolly good time atop his Hind (available to purchase in all good hardware stores). https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/498976...
