Old log queries

Postby woody142 » Thu Oct 12, 2017 3:48 pm

Cleaning out the loft at the weekend, came across some old logs with tie ups required.
All Lyneham.
C-20 i/b Lyneham 12/7/2000 at 16:05.
C-9 i/b 14/11/2000 at 11:45.
C-130 white c/scheme i/b 14:30
2xC-130Jordanian/UAE? 30/7/01
White c/scheme IL-76 dep 13:00 19/11/01
C-130 Turkish stars c/scheme 01/10/02.
Sorry for the lack of info, these were seen at work on approach from Wootton Bassett, hence no binoculars or scanner to hand!
Any help much appreciated.
Regards
Les

With due credit to "MAR":

30.7.01 the two Hercs were Jordanian a/c - 344 and 347 RJAF/3 Sqdn.
1.10.02 the Turkish Stars C-130E was 01947, present 29.9 to 1.10.02.

There are no reports of the other a/c you logged. I would think the Il-76 on 19.11.01 was probably a civilian (and probably not likely to appear in MAR), while a likely candidate for the white Herc on 14.11.00 might be W.2 XV208 which was noted the previous month (I think it was a frequent visitor but the base didn't have the spotter coverage at that time).

Cheers, ZF.
