Playback of flight here:
Expand it and it looks like an aerial survey pattern - flight originated at Luton Airport, departing at 00:19hrs.
Wonder if it's related to any oil / gas exploration that may be planned?
Best to do the survey at night when there is less air traffic and fewer people to question why this plane is flying up and down the area!
I wonder if there is anything that tracks military flights? Talking to my little Sis last weekend and they have had some stuff flying around out of
the ordinary recently. First a Britten Norman Defender, then a week later a Predator flying around. She lives next to the old decommissioned
Sculthorpe airbase in Norfolk, so is used to seeing the usual military traffic and nighttime low level helicopters, as well as the Ospreys, but
thought the Defender and Predator were not the usual run of the mill stuff.
