The sign should read ‘200m’ - if this fucking cuntry didn’t have its head so far up its arse! :angry:

Link goes to the full film on Youtube - quite good.

You can’t park there mate!

Interesting to see a local civilian doing some aircraft marshalling, telling the pilot to turn to the right.

Or waving to the passing Canberra

So, is it possible that I saw a B52 over the Cotswolds, specifically Cirencester, around 10am today?

Very big with wide thin wings and four very smoky jet engines. On its way to Nam maybe?

Technically, a B-52 has four pairs of engines but I don’t know if this results in four or eight plumes.

Were the other four engines broken?

That’s the sucker.

The internet says that they arrived at RAF Fairford last month.

It seemed to climb very slowly - I wouldn’t fancy being a passenger :grimacing:

Probably full of bombs, hopefully on the way to Moscow.

Yep the B-52s are stationed at Fairford, we tend to hear them occasionally rather than see them!

To be fair, round here its usually passenger/cargo transport from Brize (I’m guessing A400m’s), they are always doing loops/tight turns over the A420 around Bampton on my way home from work. They always seem to be going impressively slow in the tight turns!

The exact same planes irregularly-but-often shuttle past our back window about 50’ up and no more than 200’ away - they are impressively quiet TBH when they do so, modern prop tech I guess.
