Peter, if you had put the reg into Google a LOAD of references to that specific plane would have been shown, including the fact that in Feb of this year it had the nose landing gear collapse!

Thanks

I never thought of putting the registation in Google. I have serched various registrations in the past by going to the countries civil register but google is so much simplerl

From my mobile "floating house" last week on the Danube I saw what looked like a couple of Huey's/212s, so I looked around and found:-

One day there was a Robin DR400 towing a huge banner advertising an Air Show. It spotted our boat and made a deviation to close pass! (Sadly not still there when the show happens!!)

Saw a Hawk just now and a Hercules this morning fly over the house heading for Biggin Hill. Trust my wife to book a holiday so there is now chance of me going to the show. Well I did see plenty of planes at Redhill airport last week and may even have flown over my house? i am in the back of the helicopter with three others. The two in the front seats paid an extra £30 each!

If you check the BH flying list, a fair proportion flew in sight of house and a number of passes right over the top.

(Dear Mr Red 8, next time over mine would you please be fully in formation, you were not quite yet in full symmetry .............. Full House rejoining to leave after we 'd had a two ship, a four ship, a five ship, a five turning seven, and then the leaving full house.

F16 was good, followed by EF Typhoon (anything you can do, etc, etc.......!!

Just had a rare beast these days fly over going SSW, Fournier motor glider.

They used to be the bane of my life in the early 70's when I flew on farmer land in deepest Kent, always creeping up slowly unnoticed from behind or when you were pits working and then firing up their engines. I swear they did it deliberately!

Hadn't seen one before but think it was a Kamen K-MAX flying over the house at 500 ft, west to east, 3 miles west of Leeds Bradford airport approx 15:00 23/8/17. The twin rotors don't half make an unusual noise!

About 12.00ish I looked up and saw 4 models and at various heights and directions there were 6 full sized planes. 5 airliners going into Gatwick and the other one crossing from southwest to northeast all well above us. Then there was a loud roar and the Red Arrows flew over to one side of our field heading I assume for Dunsfold Wings and Wheels show about 8 miles away. Just before they went over the horizon they put on coloured smoke presumeably to test before they got there. I was just packing and unfortuneatly didn't have a camera with me not that there was time to get a shot.

... I assume for Dunsfold Wings and Wheels show about 8 miles away.

I was keeping a lookout, whilst flying on Epsom Downs this afternoon, for any interesting traffic heading to/from Dunsfold. All I saw was (I think!) a brief glimpse of Sally-B way, way off in the distance as I arrived at shortly after 3pm. At least, if it wasn't Sally B it was something that looked amazingly like a B-17 (though it was a very long distance away!)

It's midnight and the Police Helicopter is hovering over our house again. This seems to happen quite often, but only last week in my first helicopter flight from Redhill Airport, we followed the Police helicopter off the ground and hovered in a waiting area before both machines were allowed to ascend.
