Scampton 8/9

Post by slogen51 » Fri Sep 08, 2017 1:03 pm

You can read off the Canadian and EF-2000 from the track that runs parallel to the runway opposite the hangars

188783 and 30+77

Pair of French Alpha jets in special marks

Could make out a GR.4 code 066

Can't see anything on static from park and view

One Alpha jet did a really good display - looks like E-26 on the nose wheel door coded 705-ND

Pair of tucanos : ZF377 and one coded RN S special marks.

I can also see a RAF phantom and a bucc out side the hangar along with what looks like a SU-22

ZK452/L kingair just rolled in.

Oh yes forgot there are two F-4F there

Any idea which one is out side on Friday?

Guys - did an OV-10 Bronco arrive today? Their website has one due and one flew over Bury St Edmunds just before 1pm today heading SE-NW.

Yes a Bronco did arrive , can't remember the 'serial' 99+19 perhaps

Edit : sorry 99+18 looks more likely

Reference made to a second F-4F with HHA in posts.

News to me ....when did 2nd one arrive please? Thought the first one (37+89) was a spares source for an airworthy machine? Yet another museum piece in the making at Scampton?

Probably my mistake - I thought I read about 38+48 as well

This is the machine that has been allocated ZK848 (that took a lot of thought!) for HHA but has yet to arrive in the sunny skies of Lincolnshire :ninja:

Just to confirm Phantom is 37+89 and is ground instruction at present the other one is being prepared in Germany. The second Tornado is ZG 775.
Does any one have the serial of the Sentinel that was in the fly past yesterday.

Good to see a pleasant exchange of information
I do miss my time in the RAF, but every month it reminds me how great it was with a lovely big cheque
I used to hate maths, but then realised that decimals do indeed have a point...
