I've not seen the Facebook group being mentioned but the general rule of thumb these days seems to be that either everyone or no one knows what's going to happen at Fairford - there's no in between anymore. (Based on 25 years of following what happens at the base)

When passing the bomb dump in Kempsford today, there seemed to be a fair few munitions trolleys lined up along the roadways. Never seen this for one of the ex’s at Fairford before

So guys, did the 2 or is it 3 B52's arrive?
If you can keep your head whilst all around are losing theirs, you have probably completely misread the situation!!
