Hi Gary, I went to holbeach on Monday 6th and saw 2 typhoons do about 3 or 4 dry strafe runs then depart to coningsby. I believe callsigns were Apollo 11 and 12.

Looks like a quiet week after the F-16's the previous couple of weeks

Helicopters or Ospreys. They are in summer hours so don't open as a rule during the evening.
