Lake District 29/09/2023

Post by FlyingColours » Sun Oct 01, 2023 3:18 pm

Spotted doing low-level flypasts along Lake Ullswater on September 29th 2023,

13:03L 4x F35s in single file (looked like USAF but not 100% certain)
13:04L: 1x EF2000 (spotted going behind the hill as though attempting an "intercept" of the F35s
13:28L 2x F35s in single file

Also a little while later we had a T-6 head north along the lake too, possibly the world's slowest chase plane...

No ID's unfortunately at this time, I was caught unaware and was sat having lunch in Glenridding when I got my own little Birthday flypast - maybe I'm related to the royals ;) I am fairly certain that I saw USAF markings on one of the party of four F35s but this was the first time I'd seen one in the flesh. Absolutely gutted not to be able to get positive ID on anything, even if I had my camera out and ready I doubt that I'd have gotten something useful, just listed these here to say what we had fly through that day.

Hi Phil, these are military movements and should therefore be posted on our sister forum www.fightercontrol.co.uk

Civilian movements are always very welcome on here though. :)

Hi Mike,
Sorry about that, I'd just seen "Military" and ran with that :)
