So, anyone else going to keep an eye out of this? Looks like it going right over where I am today at around lunchtime.

Looks like it was doing the rounds in the north yesterday so some of you might be out of luck!

Oh no!! Would have loved to see that. On the subject of random sightings we did see a Beluga yesterday, I didn't have my camera with me though.

Hope you manage to see the Tornado today! :thumb:

I had some photos sent this morning from a friend who saw these at Cranfield. I'd have loved to see these do a flypast near us :). It doesn't seem like these aircraft are that old, but they've been going since the 70's!

I didn't see anything, looks like they were more the northern side of town. Never mind, I've seen them a good few times at airshows. :)

Yeah its a shame they're going, but the replacement is not to be sniffed at! :D
