Plane Spotting Live – Showing on BBC Four Next Week

by Matt Falcus

Plane Spotting Live is a new three-part series to be broadcast on BBC Four in the UK over three nights next week.

Set to uncover a bit of the history and mechanics of the world of plane spotting, it will hopefully have something for everyone.

Hosts Peter Snow, Andi Peters, Arthur Williams and Zoe Laughlin will be on hand to bring a range of interesting looks at the hobby, plus different aircraft types, airports and the science of flight.

It will be broadcast from a number of locations and feature interviews with pilots, spotters and other experts.

I’ve had the privilege of being involved in this show, and am really excited to be there with the crew over the three nights of the broadcast.

A big part of the show is viewer submissions, so make sure you send in your pictures during the show to give a broad picture of the aircraft being seen around the country.

The show will also feature some military aspects for fans of both sides of the spotting community.

Make sure you’re watching. BBC Four on 23-25 July at 8pm UK time.

So impressed with Katherine I admire here as a female pilot which could not have been easy in her day! My son David has been training to be a pilot but working during course to fund his career. He is truly as dedicated as you must have been!

My son rang at precisely the wrong time on Tuesday – was that the late great Mike Hooks that was interviewed?
As I don’t have any means of seeing again I’d dearly love to know what he said – he was my inspiration when I was a teenager some 60 years ago.
