Another pair of Texans

'Scramble' reports that the next two Texans for Affinity Flying Training Services are expected to arrive at Valley early next week. ZM327 (N2856B) and ZM328 (N2857B) are currently being prepared for the crossing at CFB Goose Bay.

They have both just landed, on Runway 19, then taxied across to the old hard standing occupied by 22 Sqn.
If it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all...

Thanks, thought they had come straight in over the railwayline for the "cross" rwy. 40 odd mins from GLA isn't bad cruising at FL180 before descent after just passing SW tip of the IoM.
I look forward to seeing them flying locally!!
