No Spotting During Lockdown!

Hi everyone

Just a quick "hello"

Certainly it's a bit hard to do any spotting at the moment. I miss going to the airports. And there's no overflights either.

Hope everyone is well. Stay safe.

Hi Dougie,

good to hear from you.

You´re right, no spotting at the airport. But here we have no movements anyway right now. We are on roundabout 5 regular flights a day. Unbelievable. Last time it was the volcanic eruption in Iceland exactly ten years ago when everything was shut down but this was only for a few days...

Stay safe.

Hi Dennis,

Trust you and yours are safe and well.

Yes we used to have a daily Cinnamon Air seaplane pass nearby my home but that is not happening at the moment. I've got a meeting near the airport next week which would normally mean swinging by to check what visitors are in, but this time it will be SriLankan and not much else! I can hope for some bizjets maybe.

I don't miss the security and immigration queues. But I do miss the strolls up and down the piers to see what birds are parked up!

I miss the flying the most :-(

I was just about to book a few intra-EU widebody flights just as the lockdown started to take effect. It looks like those flights will be gone for good now.

Yeah I do and I don't

I've been flying nearly every week January and February. Then it ground to a halt.

I certainly don't miss the queues, security checks... but I do miss the spotting, the miles, and sitting back with a glass of wine (my wine cupboard is empty and we are on lock down!)

I strangely miss the sandwiches in the airport lounge too.... :)
