It could have been the "target" yesterday I suppose, but I believe both typhoons on the 2 ship sortie taxied back to southside (358 apron) where the development jets are parked. Most likely the target was one of the 41TES single seats. The single ship that ...

Re: 146 G-LUXE

It was around 1554z when I saw one on climbout after approach (pd) to Valley (rwy31). Unfortunately not on rwy13 this week (yet) because I then would have seen it (and them?) on SRA/Talkdown coming in over Holyhead mountain direction..

Re: 146 G-LUXE

Hi Yammer were there F-15s operating over NWMTA about 30mins ago (1600z)?
Saw what looked like one on climbout from Valley (on rwy31). Surely not a misidentified F-35? Sun was setting etc etc excuses excuses...
