Re: exercise chameleon

Unknown 74, can't provide Id's sorry, but they flew over my flat, saw them bank south over Musselburgh, I'd assumed they were heading to Otterburn range. Pretty sure I heard them in the wee small hours that morning around 4/5am. Definitely wasn't a locomotive even though I do live close to the freig...

Re: Tattoo Flypasts?

Looks like change of plan - He’s now heading south. Just passed Carlisle Strange! As it seemed initially to be heading tothe West, then decided to follow a Northerly route, then as stated, lost him behind Arthur's Seat. I presumed he was going to go around Fife to return to the North Berwick hold.C...

Re: Tattoo Flypasts?

Our F35B's have not and will not be doing low level sorties. The aircraft is not required to do this operationally. What's the point in changing the week? We had absolute scorching weather the whole week leading up to the airshow, it's just bad luck. I'm sure that luck will change soon. It may be t...

I discussed this ...

Re: Tattoo Flypasts?

Unknown74, you are spot on. Unless you count overflying for deliveries to UK and Dutch air stations. I was hoping to see the line up for East fortune this year include a skip,,maybe next year! You would have thought a skip or 2 would be included in flypasts for the tattoo!
