Above Typhoon seen on finals from Sandy place opposite Blackpool airport at 16.00
I heard something off Lytham but wasn't sure.
thought it had been up for less than an hr.
I'm 99.99% sure it was ZJ700/(IPA5) most likely with Tarnish 10 back up again.

Re: Sweden to Join Tempest Fighter project.

Thanks OK. Presume involvement of Turks (BAES were "helping" them on a new fighter design) won't continue due to US pressure on our Govt.
(no F-35s to Turkey due to purchase of Russian S-400 ADS fiasco)

PS although not related to Warton or immediate local area another Puma HC2 XW213 "Warlock3"

on adsb down to about 150ft. Hence my guess at callsign for pair.
