I live south of EMA and this afternoon we were overflown by a 4 engined turboprop airliner - it didn't sound like a Viscount, but I thought it was too small to be a Brittania, and in any case, I didn't think any of either were still flying. Managed to take a picture, but the reg isn't clear enough - first three letters are G-LO - then maybe H or F - can't make out the last one - anyone know what this is?

L188 G-LOFC was around this afternoon

Thanks for that - don't think I've ever seen an Electra before - I didn't realise there were so many in Coventry (having the correct reg and type solved the mystery).
