Oxenhope... Contrail vis... last few weeks.

The long awaited Contrail Vis update for the aviation enthusiasts!.... Skies over the last few weeks have been mainly overdrawn or alternatively very hazy... thus whilst much of great interest has passed and been seen at this crossing of the ways, there has been little opportunity for a photographic record. Here are a few record shots through the cloud and haze just to keep the interest going. In addition the birds have been taking up most of the time and you cant do it all. Some of the details are to follow!

They arnt easy when you dont know em Brian but the regular passage is now well known.... what we have found is that "anything goes" on these international / through routes... just like the birds really... you never quite know what will be the next.... Quite exciting really and we cant wait until the migration is spent (that jokeingly really) and we can spend time searching the clear blue, cold, haze free open skies of winter for contrails and more! It will at least be an excuse to get out and catch those mid January mega multiple skein pinky days.... a double thrill if the sky will allow it!, which it should do as both need the same sky conditions.
