Many thanks for your reply.freedar doesn't have super fantastic coverage, 360 is more comprehensive, then again if at 250 feet or so, it'll be well below most people's receivers. Receiver profiles look like an upside down pyramid, with best/furthest range up high, least closest to the ground. My own particular receiver only shows a range of 14.62 nmiles up to a height of 1,000 feet.View attachment 478638
Anything on NOTAMs?Many thanks for your reply.
My question is more inquiring if anyone has any ideas what the nature of this obviously scheduled annual flight is actually about.
I dont profess to be anything other than a mildly observant peasant, however the nature of these flights grab the attention of anyone close enough to feel the downdraught!
Despite my limited knowledge of such stuff, it definitely leads me to believe they're flying extremely evasive techniques.
NOTAM - Notice To Airmen. A notice containing information concerning the establishment, condition or change to any aeronautical facility, procedure, service or hazard the timely knowledge of which is essential to personnel engaged in flight operations.Huh?
I used to bumble around if a summer evening with my mate in his microlight, (till he list his nerve) ...NOTAM - Notice To Airmen.

From memory so might not be 100% bang on as I haven't had a Professional Knowledge check since 1998
It's one of the problems with modern mandatory markings. They're often so small as to be pointless. The rot set in with 'tonedown' in the '80s and by the '90s had become de rigeur. The markings on the AH64s are probably the worst - even from a few feet away.It seems strange it's only once a year, at roughly the same time there are no visible markings on the aircraft...
Coincidence is a funny old thing. I was just given the news that the young lady in this picture passed away yesterday morning. Only a little older than me. That's just a bit shit.
