the local paper covered the gyrocopter take off incident - photo does appear to show a Calidus

Noted arriving on departures day (Mon 11/9) was Alpha Jet "FAF6443" E166/705-RW (relatively recent ex PdF ac coded 5?) and another Grob G120TP ZM307.

The EF2000GT (due to depart to Con?) plus Norwegian Vampires (due to depart to North Weald?) did not depart, along with 6 sqn Typhoon ZK314 (presumed went tech). I thought the German ' typhoon'
had called start around 1630L, heard a typhoon engine running but nothing then departed. Belgian F16s and various civil stuff departed just after show.
Canadian Hornet departed about 5 mins before the gyrocopter/calidus incident which occurred at 1135L. Glad both are OK.

Su22 was seen on tow 0808L from static to the HHA facility on northside of airfield (BAe's old Phantom/Bucc Flightshed) to join its fellow hangar queens.

6sqd Typhoon departed Tuedsay, GAF EF2000 did eventually leave on Monday, but unsure of time, believe it went back to Germany rather than joining the deployment.

Believe the other French Alpha Jet and G120 came in with crews to take the spare and static back respectively.

The Norwegian Vampires arrived at Blackpool "airport" for Southport show on Friday 15/9. Presume they came from Scampton. Thanks for update on german typhoon -obviously should have stayed abit longer to see it depart but had been told politely to leave park & view area and nearby carparking area by then. Im sure it had shutdown when I left but guess a power down / up again to clear FCS
Built in Test Equipment (BITE) issues!

Cheers
