Re: Hawks

The airfield has been NOTAM'ed closed since Monday , 22nd and re-opened again at 09:00 this morning and a single Hawk departed around 09:40 .

The closure could be due to the ongoing UNITE/Babcock strike action involving their staff who work on 100 Squadron ?

Any sign of the last F18 leaving.
If it's going it needs to go soon as there is a NOTAM now in place for an airfield closure from 17:00 today until 08:00 on the 4 January 2021 .
