Are any aircraft flying today?
This is a question that we receive on a daily basis and the one that we really can't answer accurately. As I'm sure you can appreciate flying is hugely dependant on suitable weather conditions and unfortunately the British weather can change incredibly quickly. Our advice would be if it is a nice clear day with little wind and no rain then there is a fair chance some aircraft will be flying... however we can never guarrantee!
