A later BBC report (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-48251547) shows that the Cirrus had previously landed at the private strip alongside the A40 to pick up two pax. It had just taken off when...

There's a private airstrip alongside the A40 close to the accident site; is that perhaps where the Cirrus was attempting to land?

Thanks for following up Herod. I'm relieved that it confirmed a wireframe as the basis for the Super VC10 - that explained a lot! If they'd just left off the FR probe and not done that final...

OK thanks Wonderbus for clarifying. I think I know the one you mean; it's a bit greyer and usually about 9000 feet higher!

Light twin over SW London 25May

A light twin (Seneca?) was flying a somewhat random track low over Surbiton/Kingston this afternoon (c14:25Z); a rather unusual occurrence! Anyone any idea what it was doing?

Interesting that Changi seem to think that a 787 has four engines; or was their diagram meant to be, well, diagrammatic?!

Props turning slowly?
