What? :S

I'm totally confused by your reply, I am NOT being sarcastic - I was asking why you have added a Defender circling over Lincoln to a thread about a Hercules circling that is about five months old ! I have even given you the serial of the Defender.

Could you explain what the "death threats" bit is all about please?

Many thanks. :)

I questioned you in the past regarding your attitude to a fellow forum member, to which you advised me this person has been threatening you, and sending death threats. I was merely linking the two together, as I sensed attitude towards me in your post. Not worth the hassle. Thanks.

Oh yes, him that's been banned at least 40 times with different usernames - no "attitude" was meant to you in my reply, apologies if came over wrongly. :)

It was buzzing around for much of the day yesterday, as well, including right into the evening I gather.

Fat Albert departed around 1110hrs, droned for a couple or more hours at around 10-15K, then left.

The Rad Arrows made 3 x nine ship full practice sorties, the last one finished with a flat break to 04L. No need for it as the cloud base was fine for all three sorties.

Very polished performances as we have come to expect at this time of the winter programme. ;)

Sunday. Correction. The sortie landing on at 1115hrs might have only been 7 a/c. The other two were definitely 9 each time with Red10 flying around in the background over to the east at 2-4K'. Might have contained a Red snapper! :whistle:

Defender ZG996 spent most of yesterday circling Lincoln and it's at it again now. Do we know why yet?
