Re: Israeli AF Fighter jets

Yes most F15I were delivered through Lakenheath from 16/01/98 - 15/08/99. All carried USAF serials not Israeli. 94-0286- 310. Plus one other delivery also through LN of 8 F15D on 15/09/16. Also carried previous USAF serials. Cheers John

62-4133

I have a question on the above 135 which visited Mildenhall over the period 22/03/2003 - 23/03/2003. Can anyone confirm it's arrival time at the hall? Bit of long shot I know. Here's hoping someone can advise.
Cheers John

Re: Mildenhall on Sundays

Today was not a typical Sunday. Other Sundays have had visitors that were worth the drive! Check the movements on the website. You can never be sure what may turn up. Cheers John

REQ - 31 May 2003/1 June 2003

Bit of a long shot But does anyone have any further information on the transit of a P-3 through Mildenhall on the above dates. It did not carry a bureau number and the only marking I can recall was that it had a 0 on the top of the fin. I believe it was dark grey? A photo would be appreciated. It wá...

REQ Yeovilton - 8 March 2019 Freeman

On 8 March 2019 ZZ513 was read off at Yeovil (western end). Can anyone confirm if this machine now is devoid of Navy titles and the serial is no longer in white? Here's hoping. Cheers John

Re: REQ Yeovilton - 7 March 2019

Thanks Bob for your comments. I would agree it was unlikely to be 513 given where it was parked. Also I believe it was not a HMA2 version, serial should be in white? If it was marked as Army/Marine it may have been ZZ512; if photo could be seen. Cheers John

Re: REQ Yeovilton - 7 March 2019

Steve thanks for your log of 7 March. With regard to (ZZ513??) Why did you think this? Only 513 was reported at Yeovil the following day. This is a test machine and did have an orange probe fitted when last reported in 2018. Look forward to any comment as to where you read this from or if the serial...

Re: REQ Yeovilton - 7 March 2019

Whilst ZZ549 was reported as seen at the western end circa 16:00. I noted ZZ550 as having been airborne around midday. This is more likely to have been the Navy wildcat seen at 11:56. Cheers Jobn

As I left a number of people embarked and on ADSB a short while later 43C7E1 appeared, which has been identified as ZZ106. Trust that sorts it. No doubt others on ...
