RCAF to Linton ; 11-14 October

Postby 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.
