Re: Preserved Lynx

Hi MRTT

I took the DSEME tour about a year ago, and so checked the photos I took but none of the Lynxes were blue. I'm sure a few more have been roaded in these past few months so will ask a friend who works on the base.

Re: HMS Northumberland Merlin

Hi Paul

I found a shot of Northumberland with Merlin coded "372" and "B" sat on her stern, which I believe is ZH852, those markings/codes certainly tie in with her photos on ABPics.

Two high level trails 30/10/18

Can anyone help please? Was walking in Devizes when at 3.15pm GMT I watched two high altitude trails heading east. They were someway to my northwest so would imagine they were over Chippenham or that general area. The rearmost trail was going a lot faster than the front one although there was little...

Re: Typhoon and F-35?? over Larkhill

Hi, I live in Devizes and noted Typhoon ZK353 beating it up here for at least the last hour. Can't help with the F35 I'm afraid although I do have razor012 tracking on ADS-B which is also in my local area

Red tailed Merlin over Crewkerne 13/3/18

Hi all, I was parked in Crewkerne town centre at midday today when a Merlin went over the town at approx 1500ft heading south. It had a red tail, nothing showing on ADSB Exchange and PlanePlotter just showed it as "EH10" with no reg. Can anyone help with a registration please?

I distinctly remember that in the late 1960's, Iranian AF C-130s were regular visitors and although my logs from those days have long s...

Re: B-52 Deployment info

Just got home after a quick visit to Fairford this morning, all five are clearly visible from the Marston Meysey end but only two are fully photographable, these two being both the "0005s". The other three are partly or almost totally obscured by buildings or grass mounds.
