Any Identification?
Was appearing as 60-0025 on 360radar, it was over earlier this year so I imagine it ties up.
Unconfirmed yet.

60-0025 had no ADSB on its previous visit.
Didn’t know that. Thank you!

USAF name T-X the T-7 Red Hawk

Thought this may be of interest. It's named in tribute to the Tuskegee airmen and the P-40. https://www.usafe.af.mil/News/Article-D ... -red-hawk/

Re: Area 51 storming.

The whole thing is certainly a joke, there's a lot of good memes that have been spawned from it, but I wonder if the 1.3 million people actually turned up (which they won't) what would happen? Violence wouldn't be the solution.

Re: Tornados Return to RAF Honington

Looking at Demobbed http://www.demobbed.org.uk/locations.php?location=1641, the Tornados at Honington are: ZA553, ZA587, ZA613, ZD744 and ZG752. ZD711 was also there at some point but apparently hasn't been sighted since April 2018.

Re: Lakenheath 27/6/19 F-35 & Rafale

Ah, I think I've confused myself with the squadrons but it was a shield like 141 and 143 as the angle it was parked at didn't show the starboard side so annoyingly I don't think it was 148 (which would have tied everything up straight away). Appreciate the help, thank you!

Lakenheath 27/6/19 F-35 & Rafale

Hi, Does anyone know which of the two F-35s was sitting next to a HAS that was view-able while heading along Brandon Road (near the gate to the right of the golf course) was? Another long shot but would also greatly appreciate if anyone could identify which Rafale C was parked up next to the Rafale ...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2019 Discussion Thread

Looking at the confirmed aircraft list it says it'll be a IX(B) Sqn Typhoon on static. Happy if that's true, hopefully it's one with the squadron codes.

Re: Daks over Normandy: 2-5 June 2019@Duxford

Saw them pass over from near the Borley Rectory with my dad. Absolutely phenomenal sight, especially when mentally multiplying the aircraft to what it would have been like 75 years ago. Does anyone happen to know which Daks flew in the end? I saw on the BBC news that Flabob Express and the Norwegian...

Re: Daks over Normandy: 2-5 June 2019@Duxford

Has anybody got a link to an image of today's Dak flypast routing I have seen an image that shows the route passing overhead Havering - Sudbury - Colchester But I am sure I saw a link where you could zoom into the map. I have looked at notaminfo but can't figure out this that web page works! Thanks...

Based off the confirmed aircraft list it looks like the Germans, Belgians and the AWACS will take off from Fairford.
