Any sign of the alleged F-16s? Very quiet elsewhere on the forum, sorry if I've missed something.

494 FS. No substance to the HL F-16s then? Many thanks.

Just to clarify Cube 41 is an F15 flight and not the rumoured F16s

Yes correct, that's exactly why I posting asking if anyone else had heard anything :grr: you will see in my post I asked if anyone else had heard anything ??

Whilst we are on the subject of rumours though, the Hill F-16's that are participating in the TLP are now not returning home till this time next week. Should I hear anything about them I will be sure not to post on here in case I get accused of starting a rumour to see how far it goes again.

Then they should have read the first post properly! It was quite clearly a question and not a statement of fact. Surely if people jump the gun and travel distances to Lakenheath before all the facts, if indeed there are any facts, are known, then that is their fault not the OP?
And before I get a deluge of abuse, I'm not having a go at anyone just saying that perhaps showing a bit more caution in these things and reading properly, not getting carried away might save a long and unproductive trip.

I agree with Bizf , the OP just aired the subject which is great . Other people often add meat to the bones. As it went quiet I assumed rightly or wrongly that the dates might be wrong or it's not happening.
