Hi everyone,

I come from Portsmouth, UK and was looking out the window this morning and saw 3 aircraft within the space of 2 minutes! - Easyjet A319, Flybe Dash 8 and an Unknown A330-200. We have aircraft flying non-stop over portsmouth and i was just wondering if there is a flight plan i could have a look at and when to expect certain aircraft?
Thanks very much!

Portsmouth is under 3 major arrival routes into Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted/Luton.

Portsmouth is also just south of a main departure route from Gatwick towards Southampton.

Flights into Heathrow normally fly overhead Portsmouth, flights into Gatwick and Stansted/Luton are slight more east overhead Havant.

You will see all sorts of aircraft as the aircraft coming over the top will be coming from places such as South America, Carribean/Florida (if on a more southern atlantic crossing), west Africa, westernb France (TLS, BOD, NTE Etc), Spain and Portugal and sometimes the Balearic Islands.

If you want anything more specific, let me know.

There is a waypoint called AVANT, which is located over Havant. A very busy entry point to STN, LTN and LGW.

Jordan - if you go to either BAA Gatwick or Heathrow websites there is a flight tracker - albeit it isn't updated until + 48 hours. So if you see something going over, log the time and the aircraft type/airline and you should see it appear 2 days later. If you expand the radius it should gve you type/carrier/height etc.
I am on Hayling seafront so get a great view of everything coming in routing to 'Avant', then on to Goodwood. It's even better when I nip out for a puff at work in Chichester - often overhead quite low!
