Re: RAF Valley viewing guide.

Hi all, I might head up on Monday as the weather looks a bit better at Valley than it will be on the hillside. Can anyone let me know what the parking situation is at the 31 end as I'm thinking that that will probably be the runway in use. Thanks

Just need to hope the barriers are placed better this year, and not hugging the aircraft themselves.

To be honest, I'm not that hopeful :( :(
I've been told the barrier situation will be better this year, not cones and ropes like RIAT but better than previous years

Two Wildcats currently off Southsea ZZ380 & Zz535
Also Merlin Hc4 ZJ135 plus Chinook Hc6 ZK553.

Thanks for those "Two66" :-) The SJ F-15E's went out as TABOR 44-46, but I don't know the serials > callsigns. Thanks, I have updated my post to show the TABOR c/s for SJ’s Although that then leaves me with a pair of callsigns too many, you’ve got 3 pairs before the 4 went off. But only 2 pairs wen...

Re: Power bank advice.

Anker are a good brand, I have this one

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00 ... UTF8&psc=1

Although it was £30 when I bought it, it is big but comfortably fits in my back pocket and provides loads of power although takes a good 24 hours to charge up.

Re: Yeovil (Westlands) Sightings Summer 2017

Very little flying at the moment, maybe the test pilots are on summer hols. All I've had with regularity is the CG 189. Norway Merlins seem to be having a rest, last seen by me 16/6, last had a MK4 on 12/6, did have a Wildcat yesterday,
