Jamie said:I remember on Saturday I was down at the GCR, coming back to Loughborough on the 2.15 ex-Leicester (supposedly TTI'ing, but mostly enjoying the ride from the front windows), and I heard engine sounds, and looked out one side, and I think two Spitfires flew alongside us for about a mile.
Ontop of that, a Dakota flew past us a few weeks ago.

I could just about see the remnants of the air display from the signalbox window, when they did certain moves. Other than that, all I could hear was some random engine noises as I wondered what the fuss was about!Chaz said:During War Weekend we just sat watching them at Loughborough Central although we only got a quick look of the aircraft itself the engines you can hear for miles! Beautiful! Thank for the Government that Aviation is exempt from laws.

I thought I was lucky when a 747 went over my house!
