Couldn't get any text on the post. Just happen to be overlooking Croyde Bay working my way back home after an epic bike ride and heard a noise to my right. Assuming it's a C130 or similar.

I could hear the people in the basket tailing.

So I was just relaxing in my armchair, perusing the latest RCME mag just delivered, and reading about the EFlite V22 Osprey when an unusaul aircraft sound outside made me look up to see a full size Osprey reefing round the corner of the valley and flying straight over the house at a couple of hundred feet.

Yesterday it was an A400M at the same height or possibly lower heading the other way. It's usually Hawks from Valley or Hercules or Chinooks (at treetop height). Our valley is one of the routes out to the tactical manoevering area in mid-Wales and the Mach Loop. They use different valleys in rotation it seems, and it's obviously our turn this week. Even if I have a camera or phone to hand I'm never quick enough as by the time your hear them they're overhead. Great fun though.

B-52s today from Fairford. And some helicopters, possibly Merlins, I'm not too sure on the rotary stuff.

Last night, B2 Spirits came overhead although I didn't actively see them, they were reported in the paper (callsign "DEATH" according to the local rag).

En route to Georgia, I believe, part of Nato show of strength on Russia's doorstep. And I thought the cold war was over...
