Just had TAP114 A332 CS-TOF on my box came down over Scotland now over north west England en-route Newark Porto.  Thats a long diversion, but unfortunately to cloudy to see.

Better luck this time as I managed to see TAP103 A332 CS-TOE, Lisbon-Newark, as it flew nearly over the top of my house even although it wasnt trailing.  Having Airnav let me know where to look for it and I got it as it came out of some cloud.

Morning fellas, i don`t know about you but the ash problem doesn`t seem to affected routes and conditions in this neck of the woods - if anything, traffic seems to be on the up and up. Roger

Morning all, things are defintiely on the up and up. Conditions on the ham band of 23 cems - 1296Mhz - remain steady but traffic on the box is increasing by about 5% a day on the average. Certainly more traffic showing up. Who`s complaining?!! Roger

There is a new pulse of ash heading for the UK.  At this time it is looking like UK Airspace will be in the black No Fly Zone from Sunday night. The wind will change to blow it east from late monday to early wednesday.

Bad thing to say but hopefully if ash returns it will increase flights up my way again as I am back down to 70-80 flights again. This will hopefully increase when I get antenna outside as mentioned in other post.
