Lockdown Garden Spots

Post by TheMightyOz » Wed Mar 25, 2020 1:01 pm

I thought while we're on lockdown, we could have a thread for anything we spot from our gardens.

I spotted this a little while ago:

N150SF
1978 Aerospatiale SA-341G Gazelle over Bedford 25/03/20

Feel free to add your own.

Cheers,
Oz

good idea Mark, here's one from me from early this morning (only one I've noticed all day)

maybe I should change the April SPOTM to this subject, at least most of us might see something!

The skies are rather empty. This is all I could manage today.

I'm really lucky being on the approach to the Doncaster Airport and have been working for a week or so. Here's a few shots from my house:

Stay safe and look after each other.
Thanks for looking, Lee.

The Magpas air ambulance came over my back garden a few minutes ago. The first aircraft I've seen for at least 3 days.
