These NH-90s do my head in - I always read about them after they have left!

Also reported on MSF that a third NH90 landed at Odiham about 1630 N-325.

I certainly will look out for them but it is a bit of a lucky dip on where they stop. Odiham, Benson, Manston bar the rest!

Need two of them but can't justify the mileage.

You can forget Manston, it closed in May 2014. :Oops:

N-088 was seen arriving at Culdrose from a sortie Thursday afternoon, weather was poor so no decent photo's. No sign of the others, reportedly hangared.

When I have been at Culdrose I find it is worth walking around the back of the hangar complex near the viewing area (by following the fence line). There is a large ramp and last time there were often two outside but not visible from the viewing area.

Must be a good chance of these heading home Friday 18/11?


(Last year one departed home on a Thursday and the remaining two the next day)

Saw 3 NH-90's in the distance from my house over the Haywards Heath area this morning. Were these the same ones?

I should think so , there aren't all that many NH-90s about. If it was after 11 am then they were departures.
