Looks to have a couple of non-civil airliner type kit installed - IR missile detectors/jammers? I think the MOD recently leased a couple of 146s?

edit: also, visible at tail first part of serial beginning with z - i.e. RAF

^ Yep, could possibly be ZE 707 ( or 701 ) so looks like the right postal code anyway !

Chemtrail generators? :roll:
Of course this might be the CIA rendering prisoners to a secret facility on Forvik. Guano Bay, perhaps? :lol:

Saw the Cessna flying around Vidlin area this morning, I see it's registered in America, through a company in this country, kind of a strange set up.

^ She left this morning, went burbling out over Sumburgh Head, a joy to hear. A regular sight around here just now is this Bond AS332 Super Puma G-REDN returning from offshore yesterday. :-
