Plane Spotting

Post by Alison »

Plane Spotting

There's very few aeroplanes in the sky due to the coronavirus pandemic but I can't recall seeing one since the lockdown.
The police helicopter is always buzzing about but that doesn't count.

When was the last time you saw an aeroplane?
If you can't remember, then just let us know here when you spot one again.

I am not a plane spotter myself but I am admiring the silence and less air pollution.
Aeroplanes are not fuel efficient and cause a lot of pollution so personally I hope we never see them again while they burn fossil fuels :cheers:

I thought I would have seen at least one plane since the lockdown but no, nothing!

You're planning on other ways to get around? 🛳

OK so we have a lack of aeroplanes but we still have those people who use a car for things like posting a letter when walking is better all round.
People need educating.
The day I spot my first plane in the sky after the lockdown will mark a sad day.

Watch that plane doesn't bump into the dome.

Not seen or heard any and it's sort of weird without them.

They said that about the Luddites, we still have full employment 200 years on.
They said that about mechanisation, robots and silicon chips but here we have full employment decades on.
No planes in the sky, way less pollution, adjust to the new age or go back to the other problem of global warming.
I rather suspect most want to go back to the global warming problem, you just can't win.
