There's the answer then: trail a long HV cable behind it and limit your routeings to those of the National Grid's HV transmission lines. No batteries required - you work it like an upside down...

Just to be clear, my earlier post referencing the possibility of landing was merely speculation since at that stage it was not even clear whether the airstrip was involved or not. As for the...

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?
