Wonder if the dodgy viz will affect the Chopper contingent?
As mentioned in the heads up thread, the entire HMX-1 contingent tonight was scrubbed.

Re: Culdrose G7 Movements

As per NOTAMs, Red Arrows will arrive into Culdrose on Saturday for a display over Carbis Bay that evening, then depart just after midday on Sunday.

Re: Quick Log 25-9-19

Whereabouts? Harrier could be one of a few but Merlin may have been the testing mockup AV511.

Re: UK G7 2021- Tittle Tattle

Will have to watch NOTAMs for airspace closure at Newquay. Have Osprey and VH-3 done a practice run from Newquay to Carbis Bay yet ? Thought that rehearsal happened last night at 20:00 approximately Correct, just about, they've not quite done the route but they've covered the area - Culdrose to Tre...

Re: Culdrose G7 Movements

Not too different now! 736 Sqn Hawks are now over right next to the viewing enclosure. Sea King ASaCs spent their last few years over on D site with B site being frontline Merlin zone housing 814 and 824. One of the buildings still says 829 as well, although sadly they folded into 814.

Re: Culdrose G7 Movements

Second C-17 should be 98-0054 You're quite right - fat fingers! Another correction again, VH-3s are using hangar E1. E1/E2 are the westernmost hangars on the airfield, close to the main road. Typically, the furthest hangars from the viewing enclosure. 771's most recent home was on Delta site, just ...

Re: UK G7 2021- Tittle Tattle

Think most, if not all of the HASs are now part of the museum, went in one two years ago. Worth a visit. Not all, but a few, yup. Others are used by Gateguards and previously the Bloodhound SSC. The area's a long way beyond being suitable for active use again in the proposed way, and it's not secur...

Re: UK G7 2021- Tittle Tattle

Can't speak for Yeovilton, but Culdrose currently only has a single parking spot suitable for missile armed aircraft and, as I understand it, it's intended only for emergency use. During the NATO Summit in South Wales they established a CAP over the Bristol Channel. Can't remember if it was 24/7 or ...

Re: The Tale of a Broken Osprey

Apologies for the delayed final update! The formerly broken bird made her departure on Saturday May 1st, just a few hours shy of when it first appeared. 168666/YS-13 appeared again just before and the pair departed together for the Iwo Jima. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51150233902_bb422ce4ab...

Re: The Tale of a Broken Osprey

Thanks all! Had 168666/YS-13 in on Monday, but was elsewhere for that. YS-16 was subsequently towed to a hangar. Today we had YS-13 back again for another visit. Apparently both aircraft were hoped to depart after 3pm, but I've only heard of a single ship departure, so -16 really does seem to be bro...

The Tale of a Broken Osprey

A very typically V-22 style first visit to RNAS Culdrose for the Osprey - a diversion with a technical issue. The first airframe, 168638/YS-16, arrived on Saturday evening and sat surrounded by mechanics and fire crews for a while before making a ground run. The problem evidently wasn't solved, and ...

Re: G7 Sumit to be held at Cardis Bay

Certainly potential for some movements, but the runway isn't long enough for the heavies, and parking space for them would be at a huge premium. Unless they go further afield, Newquay would be your best bet, they'd use helicopters to go between
