Lot of military activity at EDI in the last few day AF1 plus one other 757 belonging to the US arrived yesterday
Biden been staying at the Dalmahoy hotel, and a UK puma military helicopters have been buzzing around for 2days
I believe they are due to leave today. So hopefully it will be a bit quieter tonight.

AF1 and SAM46 left EDI Just after 10 PM, taken off to the west. There were seven other inbound planes in a holding pattern over Peebles.
As she went out over the Atlantic a C17 seems to have come up from England ahead of the
to form a transatlantic convoy. Wish them all a good flight

Finally off to EDI on my day return plane spotting trip after waiting 2 years due to Covid. Going up on the morning EZY flight from BHX and returning on the evening back to BHX. What is the best spotting location, it looks like it’s the spot at the end of the runway next to the car parks ?

When I went a few years ago there was a mound near the Royal Highland showground by the perimeter fence not far from where the aircraft turn after landing. Spotterguide is a good guide

Pre pandemic Edinburgh had a good selection of airlines and aircraft, hopefully many of them will have returned by now so i'm sure you'll have a great day.

Just been told the Washington 767 400 is going out almost full, unfortunately the services is due to go back to a 757 soon.
Boston services started today with Delta 767 300, so today we had 3 767s plus a 757 all states bound
just waiting for ORD and PHL to start along with Toronto.

Yes appears that way, I have now been told United are keeping the 767on the Washington route until August.
taken into account the Schools stop the end of next month and go back mid August, that would make sense.
