Re: Holbeach AWR Log August 2019

I like the above photo - I was stood on the bank by the tower so they are in front of you , I guess it depends on on what panel they are shooting at. You can't walk out over the mud flats , can you?. No, You can't walk out ,You have to stay on the sea wall but if you head right you end up under the...

Re: Ex Cobra Warrior parking restrictions

From RAF Waddingtons Twitter Feed. "There is a rumour circulating that we are introducing a charge for using the Wave viewing area car park. This is not true. The Wave is free for anyone to use within its opening hours, although we may have to introduce restrictions if the area gets too busy to help...

Re: Ex Cobra Warrior parking restrictions

For all those booking leave/hotels etc, don't forget that if the exercise runs as per previous years then flying will be limited to Mon, Wed and Fri mornings only. There has occasionally been some movements outside of this period but this has been very hit and miss and usually only involved one or ...

Re: Ex Cobra Warrior parking restrictions

I can assure you Lee, that The WAVE does not get a penny from gate receipts. RAF personnel will be on the gates and marshalling traffic. All monies raised on the gate will go towards paying for the costs of extra toilets and what's left goes to the RAF Benevolent Fund. Everything in the information...

Re: Ex Cobra Warrior parking restrictions

Well i guess like it or not those are the facts,
I'll be giving this a miss i think but i suggest people adhere to what they are asking us to do,

Think the Police will be pretty quick in moving people on if they break the requested Rules.

It sucks though,

I noticed they turned left off runway 24 so I assume they are using the newly built installations on the south side?

When they departed six weeks ago they came from the hitherto usual parking on northern side.
You are correct yes.
