    Uhhh...you have RAF bases near you....

    Closest one I would assume is RAF Croughton which is used by the US and they fly stuff in almost daily!

    Are you sure it isn't the obnoxious smells coming from the sewage plant on the A45 across from Ecton? Though how a plane has picked that smell and spread it around is anyone's guess.

    30-ish miles ... and very few flights come this way now that Cottesmore is pretty quiet, and not much traffic to Wittering apparently.

    We hear more noise from Santa Pod than from RAF planes.

    True indeed, and there are usually 3 distinct smells round our way. There is indeed the stench from the Billing/Ecton sewerage works which sometimes works its way here with wind, a similar stench from an old works at Ditchford, or more pleasingly the sweet smells from the local flavouring manufacturer. Which constantly makes me hungry.

    In fact, I shall blame them for my weight and sue them immediately!

    There's very little traffic overhead from nearby RAF places - the occasional chinook and planes-going-so-quick-you-never-realised-they-were-there but nothing to write home about. Or more importantly nothing that will make Little Darling convulse in the middle of the road on their way to school.
