Surrey Rarities

Mon May 18, 2020 5:33 pm

I hope this belongs here - today was a rather unusual day here in Surrey in that we had a Bangladeshi Air Force Hercules C130J en route from Cambridge to ?, and a Kuwait Air Force C17 en route from Newcastle to ? overflying. Perhaps these are not so rare but stood out owing to the dearth of other flights? The C17 is seen here, but was flying into the sun so not the clearest shot (at 33,000').

That'll be the second BDAF Super Herc flying out of Marshall's facility in Cambridge.
