    Try a bit further west next time for much better weather - north Pembrokeshire (Fishguard and Cardigan) - heavy traffic most days!

    Thanks Mike. I also saw a C-17 of USAF going north but the pic didn't come out too well, it's hard to photograph such a plane with all grey livery. I will definitely visit again if we get another clear spell of weather, you can see about 10 times more traffic than here in Dorset!

    Hi,

    Two photos from the last two days. A cold front sits over the UK, so we have the usual showers and no contrails

    03/11/12:
    VIR27 LGW-MCO FL260 G-VINE

    Nice pic of G-VROM Mike, and a rare opportunity to catch it contrailing at only 25,000ft!

    Weather forecast sunny this weekend so hopefully should get some pics

    Regards,
    James.
