Hi guys,

Anyone got any ideas on why Spadeadam is active from 2000-0400 for the next 2-3 days and de-activated through the day ??
Night flying is usual story but not normally till 4 in the morning.

Can't really see anything else NOTAM'd that would tie in with it.

Thanks in advance

Apache night training. They are stopping on the base. They were doing ground to air lock evasion last week and they said there was going to be night works this week. Its the final parts of their training I think. They are off to America soon for live fire exercises. As I type Bedlam2 currently over spade at 900ft.

Looks like the training is continuing into next week. I'm not going to list the notams but looks like mainly night training again. With the possibility of some day works.

Yes there are notams for every night this week through unit Saturday. I think a lot has been cancelled because of the weather. They start at 8pm until around 4am. Problem is they don't always start at 8pm so it's to dark and you can't see anything.
