This video of a frozen plane was posted to reddit and made me shiver:

“After a night of freezing rain, this is what we showed up to. Almost an inch of pure ice on almost every surface of the plane. Even the antennas were completely cased in ice.”

It struck me because today is a glorious flying day here in sunny Swansea. I realised it has been a while since I’ve looked around the UK airfields. What a perfect day for getting up in the air. The images below show the view this afternoon when I took the screenshot. If you click on the image, you’ll go to the airfield website which includes the webcam for an up-to-the-minute view.

You can see older views of many of the same airfields in the following posts:

I’ll have to look at them by airfield instead of date and see how they have changed!
