  1. Just came across this on YouTube. I can't wait for more of this!
  2. Yes - I am seeing this also. But I think the amber warning might need to be extended eastward. Winds are pretty much from 150* heading NNW. I am more on the thinking that the Level 1 by Estofex is best bet for an extensive coverage of TSRA.
  3. Lightning firing on Kent coast. https://en.sat24.com/en/gb/visual

    That's pretty rare to get 60,000ft. The stuff we've had the last few days has been circa 35-37000ft - must have been a pretty good vertical development to go into the stratosphere. Although I suspect if we keep having pre-longed weather like this we will get a a heavy heat spell and huge storms afterwards.

  6. Look at this lot over in France!!
  7. It's that cell north of brighton. It's got an anvil now.
  8. Huge TCU going up south of south London.
  9. PROG for Post Lunch - The significant weather chart. Looks like majority of the warning area will have occasional cells up to FL370. The TROPO is up to FL400
  10. Does it say what height the cells go up to? Other than 10KM+ - I'd be interested to know what the exact heights are for these cells.

    Weekend in a light aircraft!

    A special edition of The Flying VLOG with a long weekend away in France including plenty of adventures in flying. The longest flight to date and my first ever real world diversion.
  12. Huge CB to my SW tracked over Kingston Upon Thames 10 minutes ago moving due east. No sure if electrical?

    First 30c of 2018?

    18th May - St James Park
  14. Yeah, the stuff over London has died off. Was firing out lightning due WSW but it's just became windy and a bit of rain. Much cooler that's for sure.
  15. The late running BA455 from Malaga found a gap between those cells somehow. This isn't the usual routing from that direction. https://www.flightradar24.com/data/flights/ba455#111eaa46
  16. MetOffice just done some covering. Severe weather warning out in force for rain between Sat 20:30 and Sun 6:00 Further details Scattered thunderstorms will move northeast across much of southern, central and eastern England overnight. Whilst some places will miss these storms and remain dry, where they do occur some heavy rain and frequent lightning is likely. 15-20 mm of rain may fall in a short space of time . Hail and gusty winds are also possible very locally. The storms will clear from the west overnight.
  17. Welcome back to another year of...
  18. Some TCU to my west from the mid level stuff. I'd have a guess it's at FL150 and not going up anymore.

    Shoreham Day trip

    After much planning on the previous venture and having failed to reach my destination due to snow showers, a quick re-plan and a fairly decent day of weather I took a friend flying to Shoreham to see what the fuss of a £35 landing fee was all about. Click here to see previous trip. After putting in enough fuel to make it to Southern Spain, but just enough for us to fly to Shoreham and no need to refuel on landing back in London. We had a quick warm up in the cafe. I fly down to Shoreham IFR routing east of the London City Zone, taking in some stunning views on this rather clear day. We route initially east of Gatwick before making tracks to our initial fix. (Unfortunately due to some problems with the Audio, there isn't any on some phases of the flight) It also misses out some very important aspects of the RNAV approach and how I undertake it from a IMCr holders point of view. I will likely cover this in a future video. It really was a fine day, apart from a weak trough passing shortly after I took this picture. We then paid the £35 landing fee. A quick check of the cakes provides for an interesting chat, which one do we choose? A quick bite to eat, with a coca-cola in a beer glass. This burger is delicious. Having re-done the weight calculations for burnt fuel, which we probably put back on in weight through eating till our hearts content. We decided to discuss why we think Shoreham's price is valid despite some maybe thinking it's not. It's a valuable point though, but what's your thoughts on the value for money? Here's the video departing Shoreham
  20. Just deteriorated here last hour. Glad to see Thameslink still running past me at normal speed.
  21. ^ I love a good old ' Thames streamer' 9/10 Snow in SE17
