Jetting Over A Blank Disk - 2nd July

The sun itself may be devoid of spots and blank at the moment, but that doesn't mean it's not possible to get something interesting passing over it.  As I was recording my data for my full disk image I was pleasantly surprised to see a plane coming into land at Birmingham airport transit the face of the sun.  Taken with the Skywatcher ED80 at 60mm aperture, 600mm focal length with the homebrew CaK filter and the PGR Chameleon 3 USB3 camera.
