Re: UK G7 2021- Tittle Tattle

With a C17 due at Heathrow tomorrow, I'd guess that something will be happening there in due course.

Perhaps AF1 will fly to LHR on Sunday.

OK thanks.

47812C must be 0278, then. I hadn't noticed that one!

Re: Yeovil (Westland) Sightings Summer 2020

Presumably, 0279 was delivered to Norway?

I'm seeing 47812C on ADSBx, Stavanger area, earliest 2020-08-26.

Re: NATO 05 & 06

Yes, they showed on ADSBx as such.

60-0012 was at Red Flag this year, and AE5875 pinged there, so that tie-up is highly likely, but still unconfirmed.

Re: NATO 05 & 06

Are the serials from ADSBx, or did the info come from elsewhere?

60-0012 should be AE5875
60-0018 should be AE5879

I'm still trying to confirm these..

Thanks

MC-12S hard landing at Hunter AAF

https://www.military.com/daily-news/202 ... field.html

Apparently 10-00742 and 11-00289 had been flying earlier in the day, so likely to be one of those two.

Thankfully, minor injuries only.
