Czech casa 0454 turned up Monday morning for about an hour. Not sure on who's behalf it was supporting as there were no other Czech aircraft.

Sitting at Butts Farm Shop Cafe(about 2 miles from the Hoseasons site), OH making a fuss over Desmond the Ginger Farm Cat. Just seen the two F22's go over, Then two what looked like F15's in close formation. Then followed by a C160 Transall.

Led to believe the F-22s are off home, C-160 departed Fairford yesterday so not sure on that one! Your F-15s could have been the pair of Polish Mig-29s that were due out today.

Currently we have a list of at the beginning of this section (page 1) two relative new list, for RIAT 2016

One displaying a list of "Flight line (Flying Aircraft Parking) South/North/West side RIAT 2016"

The second list, being a list of the "static aircraft"

Would also like to do a list solely of support aircraft, but cannot do it as I am only allowed 6,000 the maxium number of data digit on each section

Any addition or corrections most welcome

That would have been a QinetiQ Alpha Jet, Turkish F-16 'Solo Turk', Turkish KC-135, USMC KC-130J & F-35B!

I believe an RAF Hawk T2 & RAF Typhoon are still there/

When I drove past today (Tue 12/7 at 1730) there was a USAF KC135 (not 58-0100 from the static) and a KC10 parked in front of the b2 hangar

Edit: They are Clean 81 (79-1713) and Clean 82 (59-1495) from the Heads up thread, must be F35A support

Could anyone help me plz regarding a F35 which was nose on just in front of B2 hangar (RH as looking from 27 approach end around 1550L on Monday. I suspect it was the second USMC F35B as the RAF one and the other USMC AC coded 18 (which actually flew Mon am) were on the fltline "side on" with F22 FF/181. However confirmation is reqd plz. Were any of the USAF F35s actually outside on Monday at any stage plz? Where were they located? Only 4 F35s were visible Monday mid afternoon when the B2 hangar doors were open as per above.
I made the AAC Apache which dep 1355L as ZJ226.
The RAF Tiffy which returned not long,after departure on Mon was ZK306/ED Jedi 12. It was subsequently parked near the 2 Polish MiG 29s which didn't depart as pilots had an issue with,their flying hours (or maybe had too much,vodka the night before ;-)

I left at about 15:00L and as far as I am aware the F-35A were not visible at anytime.

You will have seen the three F-35Bs.

You mentioned that you saw 4 F35s but I think you can only have seen 3. Both F-22 were outside all the time I was there, one had been towed to the vicinity of the BH herc.

USMC coded 19 was in the centre of the RH hangar, at 9 or 10 in the morning it had a tow truck in front of it and the hangar doors were partly open. The 3 USAF ones were in the LH hangar.
