Kris the Typhoons will use the active runway which is 23/05. Runway 23 landing from north coming in over the beach.With 05 sometimes in use landing from the south and on departure head north over the airfield and golf course.
QRA "live" use shorter 10/28 runway and normally take off to the east before going on track.

Yes Niall it did seem strange that a Q jet would go all that way.
