Concorde Over Ribblehead
This remarkable photograph is circulating on social media. It is in fact a lenticular Helm cloud in the uncanny shape of a Concorde aircraft with the Ribblehead viaduct in the background. There has been a spate of these clouds in this area in the last day or so. They are particularly likely in this part of Cumbria and North Yorkshire, especially when there is a north easterly wind, known as the Helm Wind.
