Noted on its 2nd ferry shakedown flight am with uw tanks and centreline conformal tank.
T/o 1024L WTN09. Did a touch & go 1127L after initials rwy 25 landing 1129L with sun shining for a change! ModeS/hexcode 70C0CF.
Painted Omani hawk same pilot (callsign) seen on climbout off Lytham at 1517L NO tanks underwing or on centreline..totally clean. Also seen recovering initials 25 1604L & landed 1606L.
Hexcode was the same implying tanks were all removed for pm sortie.
Can anyone confirm it was definately OM001 which flew again later (on turnaround minus tanks!!).

I guess they were trying to "bottom out" an issue if same jet.

Nothing else up today afaik. Just the usual Hawk T2s on flythroughs (ILS 25).

Cheers MG
