A belated report for Wed 19 April from Marham.

The flyers for the day (seen during period 1130–1630LT) were as per Steven’s VR report.
Some additional observations concerning those a/c :
ZG707/119 Landed at 1335 (presumably ferry from Lossie).
ZG750/128 Op Granby scheme – now has its number code on fin cap.

Highlight of the day - A “Wolf”-led 5 ship echelon run and break in order 045/042/003/136/054 ........unforgettable.

Thanks David - Poker 31/32 departed Lossie in ZD711 and ZG707 and Brian on the previous page logged the former without pods or tanks through the loop. Presumably this aircraft went to RTP Leeming and ZG707 continued to Marham.

According to post on Lossiemouth subforum:
Poker 31 was delayed dep due tech problem. Finally off Lossie at 1625.
I left Marham at 1630 which is why I missed it. (damn)..

ZD711 still had the hard points fitted so don't think it's down for RTP but more storage with ZD741.

As Rob says, The Give away for RTP jets are they have not just the the tanks and pods removed but also all the actual hard points on the wings Belly and shoulders.

One for you StevenNFFC

ZA458 - RAFAIR 9811 returned from Cyprus, first time logged since 2014.
