XA-ADL B787-9 of Aeromexico just went past us in full view heading from Mexico to Amsterdam [ 1500 ]
PH-AKS A330-300 of Klm straight over the top from Amsterdam to Montreal [ 1505 ]
on a night from around 10.30 we always get the aeromexico flights from heathrow and paris over us here, usually the b787-9, these flights still seem to be operating atm. The only other flights atm due to corona are a few freight flights out of EMA.

I live up on top of baildon moor, normally on a night you get a real good view of aircraft obviously making there way to LBA or departing, the high altitude ones and often you can see those heading for 23r at MAN. At the moment it just feels so strange up here with not one single aircraft in the sky, currently we just get the west atlantics freight planes from EMA and the odd long haul but apart from that nothing else. What I can say though is the sky is far clearer and you can see the stars more, it will please greta but I want my aircraft !!

Although not strictly "overhead" an interesting flight is just heading in over the West Coast nrear Liverpool-

Boeing Dreamlifter N718BA(Giant 4326) routing from Charleston to Taranto in Southern Italy.

Although there is not a lot of traffic around on the radar sites there are certainly some interesting aircraft flying around at present
I am finding the radar sites more interesting than at normal times when the screen is just cluttered with BA, Easyjet, Ryanair etc etc
