first flt RAF typhoon & delivery today Tues 10/10/17

Postby TombsRIP » Tue Oct 10, 2017 3:42 pm

Amongst the expected announcenent of more redundancies at Warton, Samlesbury, Brough and other sites, ZK429/BS145 was up on PFAT1 this afternoon flown by Tarnish 9 plus; ZK358 departed on airtest and then flown to Coningsby on " delivery" although on paper latter already handed over and then into long term storage. So only 10 more of RAF left to fly.
Any takeoff/land/dep/arr times etc for above appreciated please

Cheers

PS 2 more Omani typhoons departed yesterday (9/10) am on ferry flt to Adam AB in Oman. ZR402/211 (NS002) & ZR403/212 (NS003). I thought someone other than myself might have posted this.

The RAFO jets left mid-morning, n/s at Bari (as usual), before a single leg to Akrotiri on Tuesday for another lay-over.

I would have thought this Warton sub-forum was the most obvious place to post that rather than in the Heads Up section. Guess a few people may claim a trail and dots at FL450 along their route! Thats up to them. If the Heads Up info is before the actual date it happens so much the better...with the usual "don't shoot the messenger" caveat.

Thanks & Cheers
