L-39 Albatros ( OK-MJA ) en-route from Siegen in Germany to St Athan, currently coasting-out near Ostend.

Edited at 11:00hrs to add....
Looks like it's actually landed at Ostend ( refuelling? )

SWAG website has it listed as being due in at St Athan at 14:15hrs.

Saw three contrails of aircraft high up this morning around 7:20am over Essex. Not sure if they were flying together as too high to see but they seemed very close together. I was driving so didn't get a look but would guess around 30,000ft. anything flying around Essex at that time?

Thanks!

Just saw what looked like 4 contrails heading over Colchester - anyone know what they were / are?

They were high up - and I was driving at the time (hence the question!)

Thanks
