Out of area again,some activity in afternoon im told,but the big news is that "Lakenheath's finest" found cumbria today!!! i understand that 3 of their F15 thingies where over Thirlmere!!! i will be there again tmw and i bet they wont be! ;D
Met up with Gary (vulcan 2912) top bloke at duni today,greeted by stuborn fog! so much so missed a Hawk which came out of fog at Grasmere unexpectedly,Gary had to go off and it was time to cross over to the West side the sun had broken out but i wasnt to hopefull! was climbing up and just got cam out when a Tonka came but didnt get decent shot,carried on climbing when a 2nd came!!! once in postion that was it till 1645,did get a civil Jet Ranger low level heading up to Thirlmere,so to the next time! ;D
Was able to stop at Duni today in between work, at 0925 x2 Tornado GR4's 9+617 sqn came thru i slipped as i took one of pics! it would have been a cracker by my standards! managed to get back up for the 2nd who was high cos he wasnt to far behind the 1st. A hill walker told me a Tonka had been thru at 0845 as well,my 2nd brief stop saw an american reg chopper come thru around 2pm,the weather was closing in and it was time to go anyway,will get up again when weather gets better,one shot here the rest on Av piccies
NTR-Monday,managed to get up to Duni at 1215 as i was getting out car a 3 sqn Tiff came thru! i was told it had been fog bound all morning! when i got there it was bright and sunny and with the Tiff flying thought i might be in for busy afternoon! gave it till 445pm nothing,and sunny! thats the way it goes! will be trying Tebay on fri with my bro.
