A bunch of T-38s over Witchita Falls
That's an expensive mistake, sheesh.In January 1976 when I was 17 two Harrier Jump Jets on a training flight collided over Cheshire.
Both pilots were killed and wreckage landed for miles.
Nobody on the ground was killed or even injured but there were some frights. The Gran of one of my college mates found an engine in her front garden.

All the Cheshire places mentioned in the article are on our bike rides.
I was only joking but I looked out the window a few minutes ago and saw bright landing lights, checked Flightradar and there was nothing in my area! Now the lights have goneA Janet Airlines flight heading for Vegas that seems to originate in a dry lake bed in the middle of nowhere.... I can't imagine what can possibly be there.
And where the hell did those black helicopters outside my house come from? They don't appear on Flightradar.

An aircraft with its transponder turned off? I think the tracks on FlightRadar are all based on ADS-B data received from transponders on the aircraft. An aircraft may turn this off, or it may not be functioning.I was only joking but I looked out the window a few minutes ago and saw bright landing lights, checked Flightradar and there was nothing in my area!

Er, whoops. Surely that might have been, er, predicted? I guess the downforce of the Osprey is known; I guess somebody should have known the downforce the helipad could withstand; I guess it wasn't thought through. And I like to think it won't happen again...What a Osprey can do to a Heli pad.
this could have gone awfully wrong.
Am I the only one who, despite it being a thread about planes and despite being familiar with the plane in question, was still wondering how the downdraft from a big bird can do such damage?
Stratolaunch flies world's largest airplane on 2nd test flight
By Mike Wall about 22 hours ago
The Roc stayed aloft for 3 hours and 14 minutes today (April 29).
The biggest airplane ever built now has two flights under its belt.
Stratolaunch's Roc carrier plane, which is being groomed to haul hypersonic vehicles aloft, conducted its second-ever test flight Thursday morning (April 29).
The giant aircraft, which features a wingspan of 385 feet (117 meters), took off from Mojave Air and Space Port in southeastern California at 10:28 a.m. EDT (1428 GMT; 7:28 local California time) on a data-gathering shakeout cruise that lasted three hours and 14 minutes.
Cheshire residents have been treated to a number of sights in the sky in recent years.
The air above the county has played host to several weird and wonderful aircraft, all passing by for different reasons.
Key mentions include an old Soviet-era airplane flying from Morocco to Liverpool in 2019.
Another notable sighting includes a Spitfire taking to the county's skies in 2020 to celebrate the NHS.
We've taken a look at some of the weird and wonderful planes and helicopters spotted in the sky above Cheshire.
