Mountains are rather scarce in the Hertfordshire/Bedfordshire borders where I live! It was routing from the Northwest when it headed off over Luton Airport so may well have come from Andrew's direction.

A Twin Otter rare?? We have our own pet ones in Cornwall that operate to the Scillies. They fly over my house every day. Noisy little beasts whilst they trundle slowly over our house in to NQY. Quite pretty though!

I thought i would flag up that it is the Southport Flying Show this weekend.

I was alerted to the event by a very low flying Chinook that flew directly over our field on Wednesday. On return to home a bit later, to be told by my wife, that it had also flown very low over the house, one of those twin helicopter things.

I guess it was going into Warton.

FlightRadar 24 shows one as De Havilland DH115 Vampire Mk.55 LN-DHZ starting from near Southport. Fantastic sound those twin booms, oh I think I'm in love heartsmile.

Could this have been the Vampires from the Norwegian Air Force Historical Squadron that were displaying at Duxford over the weekend

The Vamps came over me in Wellingborough, heading toward Southport with just under 30 mins to go for their time slot. Multi radials this AM but I couldn't get out in time to see what it might be. Vamps coming back and heading for Duxford. Reds going home in nice tight formation! Lone Spit going East(ish). Not a bad haul! Last day of the Air Show season today I believe.

Quite likely I think, certainly the T55 was an export/licence built version (see below).

There some history of recent flights of LN-DHZ here: https://www.flightradar24.com/data/aircraft/ln-dhz/#afa10d0

A further search may well find the other aeroplane.

Yep two vampires, with underwing tanks.

These two I believe, the one at the back being an FB52, also licence built:

Just seen something really unusual. a Peitenpol Air Camper flying over my house. IT did two rolls The first ended up pointing down at 45 degrees, rather like an R/C pilots first attempt ar a roll. Second one was a very big barrel roll.

I didn't know that they were allowed to roll!!
