A couple of random things in this communication [aren’t they always? I hear you cry].
firstly, a while ago there was some lovely helicopter noise over my house late at night. I looked it up on my flight tracker and discovered the Army Air Corps had passed exactly over my house.
The Army Air Corps just flew over my house!

Then, last night, while looking for the rain storms that were meant to be hitting the UK I noticed a Royal Moroccan Air Force Gulstream circling above the Essex – Hertfordshire border.
I followed this for a while wondering where it was heading, eventually it turned towards Stansted airport and I didn’t follow it all the way.
My suspicion is that this flight had some dignitary on board heading for medical treatment in London. The Saudis do this quite often and you can see their planes land at Stansted. The rail links are pretty quick as are road ways and even helicopter flights. The security is top-notch there too as it is where Air Force One lands with POTUS.
The above picture shows the thunderstorms heading over the UK along with the RMAF Gulfstream track.
