Piaggio P-180 Avanti Circling Near Egph

Tue Mar 06, 2012 5:31 pm

I'm sitting here at home, just accross the Firth of Forth from Edinburgh (EGPH / EDI) and there is a Piaggio P-180 Avanti circling overhead.

Time is now 17:30 GMT. Anyone know what is doing? It's been over 3, maybe 4 times. I can't make out the reg.
Make that 4 or 5 times now... just flew over again.


May have been D-IRBS. The colours look similar

Just made a sharp turn, it was already turning so increased the bank angle, right over my house and is heading straight for EDI, would put it on about a 7 mile final.

Correction... it's now flying a tight circle behind my house. Less that a mile in diameter.

Gone now... man, I would kill for a radio scanner right now.
