Returning to Woodhall Spa from Stickney early Saturday afternoon we watched the BBMF Dakota flying low overhead and then landing at Coningsby. Less than two hours later it made an emergency landing at Manchester after the port engine failed. Hope they get it back again soon!

Anyone see either of the two of these this morning, 11:00 on?

Both flew over Liverpool.
Inbound crossed the M62 a few times, which it appeared to be following, turning South over the coast of Liverpool.
Outbound went North, turning SE before flying to the South of Manchester, and over Sheffield.

You get up to three of these at Airbus Broughton some days, presumably emptying the factory before you know what at the end of October.
Of note is the nice cafe 'Chocks Away' inside the perimeter, so you need to pass security (slow down and smile, get waved in) on the edge of the cafe plot is a MIG (or two) and I think a Jaguar, under some shrouds so not sure - big rectangular intakes.

Less to do with Brexit and more to do with the huge numbers of aircraft being built by Airbus nowadays, every one of which has a pair of wings assembled in Wales.

Whatever happens at the end of next month, you'll probably see as many Belugas there in November (weather permitting).

More likely the Tornado that the Science Museum recently entrusted to the Heritage Centre at Broughton for their £99 "Tornado Experience".

Get them over my work in Bolton most days on their way to Chester
