This is the flight back to Perth Airport from Kingsmuir. The weather was still very hazy, with reduced visibility and some turbulence. The route I took avoided the Leuchars Military Aerodrome Traffic Zone (MATZ - pronounced "mats") this time, as I knew that their circuit was active and busy. Arriving at Perth, I decided to carry out a standard overhead join, as there was some circuit traffic at Perth as well. The standard overhead join is the safest way to join the circuit as it gives the pilot a good view of any circuit activity from 1000ft above circuit height. This also provided some great views of Perth Airport out the starboard side of the aircraft on the video.
