February 29th

What a very grim end to the month for OTT spotting. Low cloud, rain and gales . Typically a couple of very nice movement have gone over me way above the the cloud :-(

N3228M a Beech premier en route from Iceland to Le bourget and
PT-SZB ERJ135 into Luton. 2 of the best movements over me of the month on a
awful day.

Hope March will reveal better weather.
