Had lovely sight and sound of Hurricane 2-seater 'Pegs' fly past my house yesterday midday/early afternoon, and when I checked on FR24/ADS-B it was showing up as not a Hurricane with the G-reg....was coming up as a microlight or something, so data wrong, but interestingly, it took-off from White Waltham and headed south down to the coast and did a few circles and loops off Selsey Bill, and then headed back to White Waltham, and flew back past me again, only closer on the return leg.
Looked like one of the standard pax sightseeing flights, but was surprised to see it operating from White Waltham instead of its home at Biggin.
It's now owned by Hurricane Heritage and based at WW, though is often flying from Duxford.
Well, looks like I might be seeing a lot more of it flying past my window in the future given I'm right next to the GA corridor route from WW to the south coast :sunglasses:

The Eagles came into Stansted last week - Escort Vehicle Group posted up embargoed photos today on Twitter for those who use it. 9 truck convoy.

The T-50's are being delivered 3 at a time aboard Asiana 747's into Stansted, 6 have arrived so far and have been transported by road to Boscombe Down. 9 trucks are required to transport 3 aircraft, the T-50's are being assembled and at least one of them has made a test flight a couple of days ago.

Hi Howard and thanks for that, that post has gone viral all over spotting forums & groups in the last few days, but that convoy was just for 3 aircraft - is it just me, or am I being my usual cynical self, but does anyone actually believe that the pilots of the aircraft were carried in the escort vehicles? I smell poo............ :rofl:

I would guess that they might have carried technicians or ground crew with the loads; security etc.

Yes I agree, certainly not pilots as the 2nd post in the link says :- 'Each Escort Vehicle carried the Pilot for his Aircraft'!!

Isn't it crazy how big even a "small" fast jet is, so easy to forget how big they are in comparison to a ww2 warbird or a light aircraft.

Earlier this morning an aircraft registration N922XM was heading North over the North Norfolk coast in company with (at least) one F-15E.
It was showing up on both ADSB and Flightradar24 but not what type it was.
A quick search on Google came up with nothing, so has anyone come across this reg before and do you know what type it is?
Thanks.

It's not N922XM, it's an F-15 using a miscoded Mode-S transponder.

Thank you.
Thought it seemed odd for something civilian being escorted by an F-15
