Proper language ?

The English couldn't even spell 'Welsh' correctly.....And **** knows what they do to their 'own' language nowadays.  :P ;)

Well said, boyo.
I have not the pleasure of understanding you. Of what are you talking?

Do you always bark back at every brakkie when you take a stroll?

Brak, brakkie - Afrikaans word and diminutive for a mongrel. Used here for irritating alliteration.

What Ian is missing is the fact that when the English tribes began arriving they referred to the native population as foreigners, which has since developed into the word 'Welsh.' Yet it is the English themselves who are the foreigners, from Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands, who now cannot wait to separate themselves from their own homelands. Ignorance really is bliss.

What site should I visit to identify a military aircraft ?

The reason.....

This fair morn, I'd been down to the village to post a package of all the Persians to Leon..On my return, home, I wandered back down the road to check on the 'outside' animals, in the fields, on the 'home' side of the road.

Was made very aware of a particularly low flying aircraft (definitely NOT a jet....it was WAY, WAY too slow...and far too quiet), as it crossed my field of vision from right to left......Blank me !!!!!! that's blanking low, thought I ! :o :o :o :o

As it continued on its flight path....I kept watching it...(wishing I'd got the camera)..And then genuinely flinched as it approached the ridge to my left..(300 yards/metres away uphill) ...I was absolutely convinced it was going to smack into the hill, and I was truly waiting for the 'BANG'......How it avoided it, I just do not know.

The pilot must have avoided the rocks on the ridge by 10 feet (3 metres) at the absolute most............Jeepers ! :o :o :o :o......There are horses up there (not ours) and if matey had had his window open, I reckon he could have patted them as he went past.

The shape of the plane....To my very ignorant eye, made me think of an AWAC....But there was no 'mushroom' on the plane.

The pilot was either a damn fine aviator...(most probable)...or was trying to see if he could make the rest of the crew 'poop' themselves.

Any ideas ?

You're somewhere in West Wales, IIRC?

If it had RAF markings, could have been a Watchkeeper WK450 drone? They're flying them from Aberporth airport.

Otherwise a few more details? Markings, number of engines?

Yes, Matey. (Martin ?)

Pembrokeshrie.

Aberporth ?......We're perhaps 15-20 miles from there....(as the Ravens fly)......I didn't even realise there was an airport that close. :o :o :o

It was soooo low....I really couldn't tell the number of engines, because it was genuinely almost 'side on' to me when I saw it.....Could have been two.....or four.
I think more likely to have been two, because of the lack of 'sound' ??....It went over our three 'cobs' in one of the fields, and they didn't turn a hair

I don't remember seeing ANY markings on it ...I was just so stunned that it was 'hill/ridge hopping'....It was just  a gray plane going from right to left. (Techno stood there, open mouthed)

I don't think it was any sort of drone.....Because I'm fairly certain I could see 'windows' at the front.....in the cockpit ?

Just had a look at images of the WK450.......And that's not too dissimilar to the shape.....But there were no hanging wheel struts underneath the 'wossname' that I saw.

Fascinating.

Probably a common or garden Hercules.
My Ego forbids a signature.

Westmarcher

So, no piccy (because you said you wish you had your camera - how about a quick sketch?  :P ) and not a drone because it had windows and two to four engines. The Mach Loop is a good bit north of you, Phil, but the Loop does see a lot of military traffic. Did it look like any of these (see 2.11, 2.57 and 5.50)

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

Raider4

Britten-Norman Defender/Islander? (although they do also have fixed landing gear, now I look)

Things like the Hercules and C-17 are a) very, very large and b) extremely noisy. I'd have thought it unlikely to be one of them (and remain unidentified).

Is the sea range still used off Aberporth?  What do they use to tow the targets?
