Looked, and sounded, like another AN-12 skirting around Penketh at 0925 as if routed inbound to Speke - I much prefer the old name to LJLA.

They seem to be routing in from Tangier, then goes off to somewhere off. They're coming in nearly daily at the moment, 3 arrivals on Sunday gone.

To be honest Scottie Dog I prefer all the old airport names Elmdon, (naturally ) Ringway, Yeadon, Lulsgate and Tern etc etc.and by the way the AN12 is noisy old thing but certainly brings variety.

I suppose the only thing from a marketing point of view Speke , Rhoose , Staverton etc, they wouldn't cut it today and certainly for overseas visitors not too helpful as too localised.

Stop press:
AN-12 interrupts gardening!!

Another of the big b*ggers just on the ILS for 27.
One went over my house a couple of weekends ago.....certainly made us all look up. I think I should actually go down and see one land / take off.
