Re: Retro 71/74

Heard elsewhere that Mildenhall has a NOTAM that it’s closed from 1300 today and all day tomorrow. If the Saudis don’t leave this morning then I imagine it’ll be Monday because the tanker won’t be able to leave Mildenhall. Unless they depart over the course of the weekend.

Re: Marham viewing - 2020

Currently you can park at A and walk to B and C Parking at A is quite limited 10 cars at a push. Normally there are only a couple of cars there but recently Marham is proving popular for some reason! Also Spot A is only useful if runway 24 is in use AND the farmer isn't in the field under the appro...

Re: Altcar Training Camp nr Formby Weds 22/7/20

Two chinooks departed last night. One around 8pm and one early hours of this morning. Not sure on the serials if either I’m afraid.

Marham viewing - 2020

Apologies if this has already been asked, I had a look and couldn’t see any recent topics around this. I’m heading to Lakenheath and Mildenhall early next month and whilst I’m in the area I’m planning on a visit to Marham. I’ve only spotted at Marham once, just before the Tornado retired and it was ...

Re: Duxford Battle of Britain 2020 - 18th - 20th September (3 DAY SHOW)

It's very odd, just announced that the Ryder Cup has just been scrubbed because they can't accommodate spectators ? I'm baffled. Due to be held in the US this year, not UK. I’m hopeful that Duxford may go ahead although I’m also intrigued as to the standard of air show it will be. I’ve no doubt it ...

Another first, P8a Poseidon looks to be inbound. Descending over Bury now.

Edit - looks like I may have jumped the gun with that post. Looks to be heading towards Doncaster / Sheffield way now.
