U-2 departures from Fairford today

Postby IanM » Mon Jul 17, 2017 10:49 am

Is anyone able to post messages when the U-2s are taxiing for take-off today please (if they haven't already left!)?

TIA

No idea as the timetable seems all over the place. Are you here viewing?

Unfortunately not as I don't have my car today! A previous post suggested U-2 departures at 12:00 and 13:00 however these are doubtless subject to change.

12.00 and 13.00 local but whether they keep to that as it's after 12 already......!

Sorry I'm not sure of the serial. I'm up the Western end so I can't see the other one unfortunately.

That's a shame - I was hoping to see 067!

Once again thanks all for your responses.
