Had a brief sight of a Phenom 100 out of Cranwell at 1500ft as it passed over Newport the other day, spotted another pair comming down from Mid Wales this morning on a similar track so was hopeful of another sighting. Alas they tracked between me and Cardiff out across the estury and off into Somerset so didn't catch sight of them overhead like last week. Nice change from the Police Helicopter

He'll be popular with ATC, given that 09R/27L is this week's runway in use.

SA341 Gazelle at possibly 500' northbound through the Yorkshire Dales. I haven't seen one of them for years, the Astazou whine took me back to the 12Flt AAC days.
