B52 over East Anglia.

Just been having a look at ADS-B and spotted a B 52 orbitting the Wash at 1140 this morning.

There's 4 on deployment to Fairford at present, this one (60-0024) spent a couple of hours working the Holbeach bombing range this morning (not using live ordnance).

Not fair all these people seeing B 52s flying near their homes; I'll never see it near mine below about FL 330 as I live inside the Heathrow CTR.

That's because the database in the software you were using is incorrect, the correct serial was 60-0024.

Pop down to Cheltenham, we had two overhead low the other week turning right over the town. we're so lucky for the flight path we had a lot of B2 sightings recently too.
