That first on is definitely overhead.   We get them going over from the East Midlands Airport but not as close as that.

We are miles of LBA Kenny, but under the approach path they use when slowing/coming in lower for the approach. Stupid as it sounds, I can get to Manchester airport quicker than I can get to LBA :? Roads are shite to LBA, so it usually takes about 1 hour 10, where as I can get to Manchester in about 50 mins :mrgreen:
  We hear engines decelerating quite a bit as they come in, but it's not what I call loud. They are a great way of telling if bad weather is on it's way, as they always come in lower than usual, when stormy weather is approaching. And sure enough, we had a rain storm about an hour after the easy Jet went over.  These are both at full 300mm stretch, so you can imagine how high the first one is, as that is about a 50% crop too ;-)

Don't get any balloons round here :( Used to see loads when we lived in Wiltshire. I guess nobody wants to go up and see an industrial estate and town centre LOL
One day I will go up in one, cos I've always fancied a trip in a balloon :mrgreen:
