Out in the garden today I saw a plane go by!
Its funny how you notice things when they are no longer common.
On a similar note i only saw one bike out today on the A 49,  on a normal Sunday with dry sunny weather Its like the TT
Stay safe everybody good times will come again

The skies aren't so busy as they was a while ago but there's still plenty of planes in the air.

I have noticed that as well and also that the air is noticeably clearer (not solely down to air traffic obviously), my journey to work takes me up on to the pennines above Manchester and the brown "smog" haze that is normally so visible is massively reduced and frankly I like it. My favourite con trail is the enormous Antonov which shakes my dads house about 500 feet up on it's way into land at Doncaster Robin Hood airport and it's apparently still making it's regular trips because it carries freight.
