    Unable to help, but we saw it last weekend at the Abingdon airshow, was ace!

    This photo from the Oxford Mail shows it turning in over Didcot Cathedral…

    I had the option of transferring to Didcot 30 years ago when they closed the power station I was at, at the time. I chose the Hinkley Point option instead and got to live on the Quantocks 🙂

    Derwent reservoir flypast on Thursday.

    Flew over my house about an hour ago! Went over Boroughbridge heading Northish. Dunno how high but not very, & it sounded wonderful!
    Any ideas where it’d be going?

    Ah, Brafferton then. It’s only over the river as the crow (or Lancaster) flies from here. Still dunno why it was there though. ❓
    Plus I’m sure It’s more than 10 minutes flying time from Brafferton to Coningsby.

    I don’t know, but it might say something about it somewhere on the site I linked to ^ up there.
    It’s the 70th anniversary of the dambusters raid on Thursday, hence the Derwent flypast. There’s a flypast darn sarf (Radio 2 are involved in a commemorative show) somewhere on Friday, so today might’ve been a practice run (or whatever they call it).

    You turned Didcot down? But its cooling towers were designed by an architect!

    They’re shutting Didcot now, or half of it, and as part of GE decommissioning the plant has artists in residence, who have a website here: http://wherecloudsaremade.blogspot.co.uk/
