Just wondering which direction these will be heading? Wondering wether the same routing as The Reds were on Monday?

Just wondered if there is any other information known about this Flypast Tomorrow? Does anyone know which Helicopter and Aircraft Types are to be involved? Also wondered which direction they are likely to be heading, I will probably be watching from the Edinburgh Area? So hoping for either East - West or West to East?

Don't understand why you keep asking questions that have already been answered for you.

Left to Right or vice versa which equates to East to West or West to East.

Don't forget up and down depending on wither you are at sea level.

Depends on the angle of the dangle along with the curvature of the Earth and weather or not you're standing in front of a mirror, then East to West will be Right to Left and West to East will be Left to Right and not the other way round. Of course it could be wall to wall clurg, then you'll see feck all regardless which way you look.

The mirror was going to be looking over my right shoulder but if you think it would better I can move it to my left shoulder.

What are we all going to do for next year ? I'm thinking of step ladders on a box
but I'm unsure which way to face. :thumb:
