F35A Lightning II... Right above my home. :shock:

Holland got two F35s recently, and today it did am introductory flight over the country (which it took about an hour and a half to cross from north to south to west, back north and east again, traversing entire country of the netherlands at leisurely pace at 1200ft)

My home is near Woensdrecht AFB and after picking up the kids I saw it over my home when pulling up in the courtyard.

(Still ugly btw, but its cool to see what the hype is about :lol: )

Does hearing aircraft count? Only a few minutes ago I heard a great rumbling from above, and as it is dark and cloudy outside, I could not see it. :x
A quick visit to Flightradar24 determined that it was this:

Not something that generally gets down this neck of the woods very often. They do make quite a noise when you live in an 'acoustic' valley, even when flying at 30,000 ft as this one was.

I just watched a Boeing 788 fly over town. I could tell that was what it was by the shape of the wings and could just make out the engines. Flight Aware says it is carrying a load of passengers from London to Houston. I hope they enjoyed their stay in Tennessee air space.

Today was a little thin seeing how I currently live in Quezon City, Metro Manila, Philippines.

It was overcast so only visible aircraft was a low and slow UH-1PH. I heard the usual heavies above the cloud deck but was unable to get a visual.

No pics. Spotted a Hawk yesterday. Also heard at two different times, something on 'burner'. Just caught brief sighting off an F 15 Eagle tail, out my bedroom window, a few moments ago. Low and fast, in the low transit route that runs just to the south of the village.
Fliped out of the arena, again! :(

Does your house have an Airbus sized hole in it then?
