Overflights - OTT you or your house.

Post by norwichmike » Wed Mar 24, 2010 1:54 pm

Hi Guys

Recently I started looking at the overflying traffic near me, So I was thinking, Like the post about what go's over your house, We could start a photo version of it. Quality doesn't need to be a major thing for these, just think it would be nice to show whats overflying you...

Ill start off with 2 seen this week over Norfolk

F-GSTA A300ST "BGA1TA"

RA-82042 AN124 "VDA4358"

I will update as often as I can

S'funny you should mention overflights, I took this today, I knocked the camera off 'auto' hence nothing in focus :)

Image

The uppermost is D ABVU and the lower G VII? something (I think). When they are departing on 9R, the U.S./Canada /Ireland bound jets often turn and come over the house about 3 to 4000 feet. I live about 4 miles south of Heathrow under H9 very near the junction with H3. :)

Have fun

D was in the old colours last time I checked? F, which they've had for a good while now, is all white except for the #5 above the cockpit windows.

Excellent thread.

The one on our sister site is hugely popular.

Allows those with limited travel opportunities to still get involved! :thumb:

Good call norwichmike! :thumbs:

Great thread, Autumn and winter around the corner-love the cold frosty mornings and early evenings when the sky is clear and crisp-lots of good photo opportunities!
Some of my efforts below...I'm happy to be corrected on the ID of them from those with better eyes than this old buzzard.... :roll:

EK380 does a flypast of Barton's flagpole-shame there was no flag flying that day!

Thanks for joining in Gary. The first pic I would say would be a Aer Lingus A320 and a Lufthansa A340.

Keep them coming
