8.8.18

Post by reaper493 » Wed Aug 08, 2018 11:55 am

A quick drive past this morning saw G-GMAD seen launching around 9.10

Returned for a little over an hour around lunch time.

Sentinel ZJ690 arrived back from the Mediterranean as RRR7381 12.40

ZZ417 has been up once and is still parked out, has been refueled.

1x RC135 parked out, either 665/666.

1x Sentinel parked out, possibly ZJ692.

5x Sentry parked out. 01, 02, 04, 06, 07 (special marks) and what's left of ZH105 down the bottom.

2x Phenoms down by CG5 still, didn't read them off but presumably they are ZM335/ZM336 as neither had the RAF 100 decal applied. Any idea why they are still here, or when they are planning on leaving?

I think the Phenoms may be slightly bent but not sure.

Saw 666 on 360radar head to the Med and was flying Monday or yesterday around there.

Can't confirm the serial though.

Crash Gate 5 is at the Harmston (South) end of the base.

It is located from the large layby on the base side on the right!/left bend of the B1178 Harmston to A15 Road.

You can drive all the way down the farm track, but it is very very bumpy.

Hopefully this link should work to show you on Google maps.

The Phenoms are ZM335 and 336. I read them off on the evening of the 7th.

ZH103 is on base in the Awacs hangar, on the right.

There was also a Sentinel on Alpha dispersal yesterday.

Be so much easier to see stuff if these darn hedges were cut......

That was their plan all along.
