Hi all

A large twin flew over earlier today, I couldn't quite make it out - possibly a Dakota - and just now a Consolidated PBY Catalina flying boat pootled over, presumably the same one that came over in 2014.

Is there something going on today in these parts? they were both heading north west of here.

Red arrows went by as well, I thought It may be something to do with the 3 Queens in Liverpool, but it's proabably Llandudno ?

Aye erindoors spotted the reds, the Catalina flew by again although a bit further away this time. Jet(s) came low over the house while qualifying was on TV too.

Probably did both as they are so close.

Red Arrows flew over the 3 Queens this afternoon, there are 3 ships there, it's just they were all in line !!! Smile



You would have thought they could have found a more opulent berth for the Queen Mary Wink

Hi
In the lower picture even the gulls (possibly Lesser Black Backs or Herrings) are flying in formation
