Not the best quality pictures, but I put these on for the record. Half an hour ago the Vulcan with a Spitfire for company was in a holding pattern over the Solent in front of my house, quite a long way out. Travelling between Shoreham and Bournemouth.
Hopefully I will see it again tomorrow.

nice to see, thanks for sharing.

There has been terrible haze over the sea here in Bournemouth and it looks as if you have the same problem

According to the BBC, yes. He's in hospital in a critical condition.

I have just had a glimpse, 15 minutes ago, in the distance of what I think was a Bell Osprey V22 over the Solent, travelling South-West. Anyone else see it?

At about 6.45 pm. the above aircraft (Osprey) was seen in the very far distance going back the way it came, crossed the coast at approx. Bognor Regis and went inland.
I believe that some are stationed at Mildenhall but are sufficiently rare in this area to mention.
