Reds Training

Post by Mez7000 » Wed Feb 15, 2017 8:18 pm

Thinking of a trip over to Scampton, Waddington and Coningsby tomorrow. Just wondering if anyone knows if the Reds are out every day and if so the best times to see them.

Thanks

Mark

Subject to weather they are out weekdays, 30mins each, Enid or Gypo first, the other after for another 30mins, 90min gap and the same again, usually three sets of those.

What are the times they go up ? I'm coming down to Lincs for the day on Thursday so would be nice to catch them on my way by.

There are no specific set times for every day, it varies but my best description of usual practice is a few posts above. Keep any eye on the Winter Training Page of the Reds Official Website. Other than that keep an eye on official Twitter accounts, they won't give you times but might allude to them flying or not. The only other source I know of is our group, I've had to take the decision not to publish my own times in winter if the Reds don't but I do my best to put together what I can and go as far as I feel I can go in terms of hints and best guesses live on Twitter most days. That's @EGXPinfo or if your not on Twitter you can access our feed on our website.
