Had the pleasure of watching a DC3 do a couple of circuits of the old British legion village at Aylesford Maidstone on Saturday last 2nd June, as I say it done 2 circuits of the village then flew of towards the Paddock wood area all quite low, it looked like the DC3 that's kept at RAF Coningsby with the BOB museum, anyone know anything about it on here.

Can't help with your sighting but we had it fly low over Dartford a month or so back and couldn't find anything on the official website about where it may have been. Did it have D-Day stripes on the wings?

Also noted that it didn't appear on the Flight Radar website, too low perhaps? However, neither does the daily sighting of the Spitfire or the regular Apache over flights.
