Hi Christian,

I 'm pretty sure that IPA6 is the jet which got airborne at 1655L flown by late afternoon merchant WTN69. Landed back 1821L (streamed brake chute).

So presumably ZK432/BS148 went tech for pfat3 then?

Cheers

Hi Martin you were quite right, I left at 16:30 and guessed on BS148...
hopefully better luck on BS148 tomorrow.
Thanks for the clarification

Showing as fltno ABD2602 ModeS hex 4CC3D9. ATD STN 1514L.
For whatever reason not showing reg on FlightRadar 24.

Straight in from west, wide downwind to land. Didnt need to burn off more fuel and take the RHAG which is a bonus I guess...was up just shy of 30 mins probably RTB as a precaution. Hex code in sequence as predicted 43C7A8.

Cheers

PS just seen 2xGrobs heading nth over the Fylde in tight formation @ 1657L c/s "Mersey" with MERSY1 showing on modeS as G-BYUD (wack)

Christian,

I presume there were 3 of them (also Dolphin 12 ZH846 & 13 ZH835 all 820 NAS) en route to PIK and then Stornoway after refuel at Shawbury for Ex Joint Warrior to join up with the 2 RAN MH-60 Seahawks that were airfreighted into Brize yesterday and due to route via Valley? Prestwick? and Lossie.

Seen OTT Fylde coasting out over Fleetwood area today just after 1215L was Slovak Govt A319
OM-BYA fltno SSG004. Wasnt plotting on usual tracker sites (FR24/PlaneFinder) I noticed.

Cheers

WTN29 up in typhoon believed to be a development jet, most likely IPA6. Had u/w tanks fitted.

Seen turning finals for rwy 07 & land 1211L. Vacated right onto taxyway "C" so parked southside 358H apron.

Must be a few on OT today then....

Warton active for 2nd Sat in row.

WTN69 up at 1209L off rwy 07. ZK303 (BT17)?? Nothing on modeS (yet).

Inbound initials 07 1319L and landed 1321L. Taxied southside so more than likely a development jet .

Cheers
