RCAF to Linton ; 11-14 October

Post by David Thompson » Tue Oct 10, 2017 10:55 am

There is a small group of 426 Squadron Royal Canadian Air Force personnel and veterans due into Linton on Wednesday 11 October to attend a series of memorial services throughout North Yorkshire and to visit their former wartime airfields before departing on Saturday 14th .
I do not know for sure but suspect that being an operational squadron that they will arrive in one of their own squadron aircraft ? Hopefully !

There's a Canadian CC130J heading south over southern Scotland according to ADSB
at the moment, not out of Prestwick so could be Linton bound.

130610 looks to be up from Linton, currently FL030 over East Yorkshire.

Presume fly-by's or VIP flight.
