    We've not seen any vapour trails in the sky since late morning yesterday (Saturday) although the airports reported as closed were Stornoway, Benbecula, Barra, Inverness, Wick and Kirkwall. I can only think that the transatlantic flights are being re-routed.

    These planes are the only ones I've seen today , flying together:

      I belive the images looks like:
      1) Yakolev YAK-52
      2) Yakolev YAK-18 and YAK-52
      3) Yakolev YAK-18T

      (Must have been a great sound though).

        I think the best sound for the money comes from the T-6/Harvard.

          Interesting looking planes, which I assume is for civilian use.
          But what is Hungarian small planes with a large Red Star doing flying around in Scottish airspace during a shut down due to ash in the air?

            There once was severat YAK-18Ts on british reg., but somewhere down the road, someone discovered that for a reason, russian aviation authorities never did certify this type of aircraft for international use ().
            When Hungary became a full member of JAA and got their own certificate of airworthyness (CofA) programme, all the british registered YAK-18Ts changed to hungarian registery.
            I don't know at the moment, but I belive this HA-YAJ is based at Glenforsa - Isle of Mull, but I'm not sure as this could be a visiting aircraft to the annual fly-ins there....

              The noise from the planes was what drew my attention, perhaps more so because nothing else was moving. They were well below cloud level and looked as though they had been following the course of the Caledonian Canal.

              The Glenforsa fly-in is on 28 May this year so you are perhaps right that one of the planes is based there. I'd never heard about this event before so it might just be worth going over or perhaps, even better I could sit on the mainland and watch them in the air

                              The only plane spotting you can do legally here in Bodø is from far away but it isn`t necessarily a bad thing!

                                Got no good knowledge of the area, but isn't there a hill of some sort down by the local aero club where one can crawl up to and take pictures...?
                                And a perfectly legal place, much closer, is the old control tower cabin on top of the aviation museum.
                                That gives superb pictures from the approach/take-off, landing, taxi and park.

                                Great photo though!!!
