So as an ex-Airforce chap I was suprised to hear some fairly odd and very heavy rotor noise coming into London this afternoon so I popped out and to my suprise I saw not one but two rare Osprey V-22's overflying central London.

They then proceeded to return with a high speed pass in "Aircraft" mode and I then managed to catch them on the third and final pass. I have no doubt they will be exhibiting at the Farnborough Air Show next week?

From what I hear the Eurofighter has also been sighted doing a few passes around and about practicing for the air show. :)

Very cool! I'm a U.S. Marine Corps brat (dad was career), and I've always liked watching aircraft fly around. I used to think I was destined to be a pilot, but alas, dad talked me out of enlisting... When I lived in London, I remember hearing loud jet engine noises on the day of the Queen's Golden Jubilee. I went outside and got to see the Concorde (one of it's last flights) flying in formation with the Red Arrows. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to take a picture, but there is a great pic of it here: That was quite a day.
