I guess the forum isn't as upto date as it once was :whistle: :halo: ;)

You must be having a giraffe! FC forum is a great centralised source of movements.
Indeed it is.. And so was this section,on a daily basis. Unfortunately it hasn't been the case for quite some time :(
For reasons that's probably best not discussed here!

Ah! I see what you mean.

I did hear there was some agro in the South west section a few years back.

I do sympathize - most of the Mildenhall movements are in the heads up / RCH section but as long as it is consistent it works for me.

It's been all over the FC Facebook group pages for well over a month..!!! Hence my rather sarcastic comment about it being old news. Chris globe of all. People must have seen it.. Thought you were up on everything old boy?! :D ;)
some of us don't use facebook and never will !!

For all you techno-dinosaurs out-there ( me included!) Sea King HAS5 XV666 visited former NAS Lee-on-Solent on Friday 11th! It didn't take long to fix that then?

I thought I saw a Sea King come out of HMS Daedalus on Friday and thought I was seeing things
