Re: Mildenhall on Sundays

Evening all, going to be in the area on the 14th April with a few hours to kill so generally is it worth a punt on a Sunday morning movement wise? Hi Webby74, It can be hit and miss on Sundays but may be worth a look through the log's on this site to check previous Sundays, could give you some idea...

How about for:-

Thanks Bob, my point precisely :thumb:

Notam question

Hi Folks,
I'm sure I'll be shot down in flames for asking this, why are Notams not posted on the Fairford page during exercises, just because there is an exercise on surely doesn't restrict other arrivals etc?
Just askin..
