Nicely caught Andy, that one flew over here a few days ago but was slightly higher up than that (about 6 miles higher)! :thumb:

I don't think I will see much else for a while, it's clouded up now.

One thought - is GA flying allowed now, I wonder if the local airfields will start to become active?

Not yet unfortunately. Andrewsfield quoted this from the CAA in an email they sent out earlier today:
Dear all,

We wanted to provide a brief update on the current status of the government guidance around recreational GA flying. As you will be aware, the current guidance that we have issued precludes recreational GA flying (https://www.gov.uk/government/publicati ... l-aviation).

Following the Prime Minister’s press briefing on Sunday 10th May, and subsequent wider guidance on the new measures designed to reduce the spread of Covid-19, we recognise there is an appetite for renewed guidance on what this means for recreational GA.

The Department is currently in the process of reviewing its guidance to ensure it remains consistent with the wider government advice on restrictions around sport and leisure activities. We are doing this as quickly as possible, and hope to update the guidance on the GOV.UK website very shortly. However, until this has happened, the previously issued guidance precluding recreational flying continues to apply, and we would be grateful if you could help us ensure this message is shared throughout your associations, and across the sector.

We are grateful for your continued patience as we work through these unprecedented issues as fast as we can, and we will provide another update as soon as the guidance has been updated.

Take care,

General Aviation, Skills, Safety and CAA Division

Andrewsfield have just informed us of this DoT document https://mcusercontent.com/53d1ad9d4f5a5 ... y_2020.pdf, so expect a further gradual resumption of private flying based on those restrictions, and controls individual airfields wish to put in place.
