:lol: Well spotted!

The FRA bouys from Middlesborough have been up this afternoon over the North Sea and this morning three of those little Partenavia Victors from Liverpool were in a convoy heading up over Dundee

Ben, what are you starting? :poke: When I could be doing something different I now find myself on Flightradar. :doh:

This is a strange one, Bioflight, something to do with air pollution?

Yes, I’ve noticed them up and about too. I quite like seeing what’s up, and it’s much easier to find something a bit different when theres little commercial activity.
I spotted my favourite 146 yesterday, G-LUXE of the FAAM

Have a look at this site chaps... tends to show more military stuff than FR24.

Definitely a site to watch Chris, one military a/c callsign is/was Brutal 32 and he is/was flying around Beverley as though chasing a none existent bogey but obviously under military radar control.

Thanks for the link. :thumbsup:

Did anyone notice a Canadian registered A4 Skyhawk on FR24 at about 0730/0800 this morning?. It appeared to have originated in the Netherlands then headed north. It stood out because of its delta shaped icon which I’ve never seen before. *-) EricT
