Good on him.
Mind you if he got a leg-over it was pretty quick, on the ground for 20 seconds
I did laugh at all the feeble / fateuous? excuses by the MoD about the other wee jaunt to the Isle of Wight.
But seriousley
Do we know where the routine / normal training flights by non Royals go and does it matter, you got to clock the hours somehow.

I see aviation analyst and RAF-trained Jon Lake told the weekly paper the April 3 flight was "ridiculous and inappropriate", but the ministry said the two-hour training mission was fully authorised, and that is that as they say, the MOD has the say in these matters not some self important twat like Lake, is this news? why does Lake open his mouth when only shit comes out? is it our business what a young chap does in his girlfriends garden?

Yet another example of tabloid press
