Hoping I get some traffic from this come over me in Bridport on its way home, potentially the Sea King going to Bournemouth, holding small hope for the German Typhoon but reckon that will go over high and inland from me

German Typhoon has long gone - almost at the French/German border near Strasbourg at time of posting.
