The RCAF colour scheme is eye catching, shall we say.
The RAF A400 at the 1.00m mark is a sight worth seeing. Embiggen.*

Day-ummm! That's incredible.

I feel bad for the people who live down in that little valley, though. Hearing that shit day in and day out would drive me nuts.

You wouldn't be the only one. A farmer in NW Wales was driven to distraction by low flying aircraft and complaints to the MoD did not bear fruit.
In desperation he painted the words 'Piss Off Biggles' on a barn roof to get the message across:

BTW Biggles was the nickname of a fictional RAF pilot, James Bigglesworth, who appeared in a series of children's adventure stories by Capt W E Johns.
There's no truth in the story that the last unpublished book in the series was to be entitled 'Biggles Flies Undone'.

Seeing this brings back memories.

I've been a non driver for years now. While there are some major down sides to not driving, there are surely upsides.

Crap like this is just a distant memory. Parking combat AND needless interaction with law enforcement, both effectively at zero.

I do sorta enjoy seeing others fight over spaces though, as I exit my Uber at the store entrance or park my bike.

There is nothing quite like the sound of a Rolls-Royce Merlin!

Be aware that there is some language at the end of the video which might not be appreciated by all.

I appreciate a gratuitous bit of "Fuck me!", now and again.

I'm a fan of the surprise low pass:



Low enough to send the beach canopies and umbrellas aloft!

He's dumping fuel? That's the only thing that might do that is lite oil. I don't know why planes dump fuel, but it's a thing. Philthijinx help please Sir.

Products of combustion include water vapour which quickly freezes into ice crystals at altitude and forms condensation trails.
The rainbow effect suggests light refracted through those crystals.

Fuel dumping usually occurs in an emergency when the aircraft has to reduce to its maximum landing weight.
This can be governed by runway length available and associated braking performance, and also the need not to over stress the airframe.

Here's the ATC recording and some video from an incident where a British Airways 747 experienced an engine surge, and subsequent shut down, on departure from Phoenix.
Fuel was dumped away from residential areas and the aircraft returned safely about an hour later.

Just prior to 9 minutes, the incoming aircraft looked like they were shuffling cards.
I was always intrigued by the planes approaching Philly airport, from north to south at night. Looking at them from just south of the runway I could see as many as 8 or 10 sets of headlights in the que for landing. I know they were miles apart but also moving fast.

Have you looked at Flightradar24?
