Hello all

Dublin airport has more ground vehicles than planes at the moment!

JBU0924 Santiago to Chicago - it's showing as a question mark on the map?

ShowMePotatoSalad Sun 11-Feb-18 10:54:46

Back to normal now. How odd!

The Bermuda Triangle strikes again! There seem to be a lot of black, dotted lines in that area, it's enough to make me briefly wonder if the conspiracy theorists had a point grin

ShowMePotatoSalad Sun 11-Feb-18 11:10:32

It was a bit freaky!

Apparently a helicopter has gone down over the Grand Canyon shock

brizzledrizzle Sun 11-Feb-18 12:35:07

there's apparently been a plane crash in Russia - no details though.

Awful about that helicopter :-(

ShowMePotatoSalad Sun 11-Feb-18 13:15:13

Details emerging now. Absolutely awful news.

Heard a small plane low overhead earlier, so looked for it on FR. It was listed as from BQH, which I didn't recognise.

Googled, and it's London Biggin Hill in Bromley. It was famous during WW2.

I guess that with better weather and more small planes, there'll be more of these smaller airfields showing up on tracking.

I'd ignored some alerts on FR today as I was visiting mum in hospital. I think I'm glad I didn't see this if the alert came up. I saw the news when at the hospital.

I thought this was going to be about cloud and weather watching.
Sounds much more interesting though.
I'll get my coat as not my thing, but really like the thread thanks
