Is the Standard playing tonight?
Negative. Must be Saint Valentin descending on parachute - or perhaps hovering per tele-controlled drone.

Where do you get the "live" map from ?
It would be interesting to check the history
I can only get prediction from the rmi website (tomorrow looks more normal)

Indeed, no doubt about that.
Might be the ugliest big aircraft, though? :lol:

Lion Air should be renamed Lion Scare!

A scorpion was found hanging under the bin on a flight between Pekanbaru and Jakarta.

I couldn't find the ICAO/IATA code yet... but there's a new airport: Reusel Airport: https://nos.nl/artikel/2272125-aardappe ... haven.html [dutch only]
Short English version: to bypass drone-flying limitations, a Dutch potato farmer created a Drone Airport, and it got approved.

3rd night in a row with a hot bubble over LGG.
All models failed to predict it (you can switch between 4 on windy.com).
I would love to hear some explanation...
