Martyn
I see you have arrived at the requisite 15 posts for the holy grail of heads up

Guys/girls don't stop there - continue if you can to contribute articles, photos and especially reports from your nearest military airfield

Hi,

I set an account up in 2022, but due to the random dice thst life throws, only just been able to 'get off the ground' here.

Based in the 'Middle Bit' of the UK, I have had a long association with aviation and my hobbies reflect that. Amateur radio, airbsnd scanning and ADSB data gathering and sharing.

It was a friend of mine who introduced me to this site, as we both use ADSB program (name withheld in case treated as spam!) and equipment and always good to cross reference data and discuss with other aviation enthusiasts.

I'm still working for my sins, but will try and be as active and proactive here as possible.

73.

Hello! I'm D! Newbie FC, living down in Yeovil Somerset! I work in the aerospace industry & love watching AC flying over! This is all new to me, but I do use FR24! I have to admit I'm a Merlin girl :blush: but I do love love love it when I'm graced with a Chinook flyby (which is not often enough :'( ) Thanks for accepting me :D

Hello, Signed up a while ago just started to chat today.

Been an aviation enthusiast since I was a kid that was 45 years ago and I am still as mad about aircraft now as I was all the way back in my childhood :lol:
