Thanks Phil. I didn't expect you to drive down specially.
Are you still driving that old Audi, or have you upgraded to the new teleporter model?
Ciao,
Freeman

G-LNAC AW169 is again flying in the vicinity of Yeovil.
I guess this is either the new Somerset and Dorset Air Ambulance or crew training in preparation for their new AW169.

Hi could really use some help today. The most I have ever seen here, and the least I have ever read off. Everything was nose on the the footpath.


??? Westland Lynx Algerian Navy, half read off as ZK195 but wasn't that delivered last year?
AW101 primer, getting ready to fly, 3rd Norwegian?
AW169 Coastguard
Wildcat Royal navy?
Apache AAC
G-CDVB A109 hack

would have been fine if the parked them tail on as seems normal!

Flying today have been Wildcat ZZ517 and AW101 ZZ100 which is still in primer.
The Apache did not show up on RadarBox.
I guess the wind was in the wrong direction!!!

Thanks for the help guys. Looks like ZK195 was last noted in November so still may not have been delivered.

Hi Rob,
Did you try from the back of the social club car park? The slight rise in ground level there often helps with reading a 101 on the west of the ramp.

I have tried the sport's center but never had any luck, maybe I was in the wrong place? Usually manage to get 90% of them.
