To save anyone a wasted trip, as of mid-day both U-2s are in the hangar and not visible. Still here are the C-12 and 747

Re: Viewing at weekend

Just to elaborate on the info from Tiger, is the lane you are all talking about, the "naughty lane" with extra night time activities? :Oops:
I'm travelling up on the Thursday morning, hoping that the Israeli F-15s are still there :S

I think that was why the 2 latter 146 were in the grey scheme Thunder, to be used in "other roles"

Not certain but I've heard it mentioned that the Israelis will be departing on Thursday(19th), the Germans & Italians ...

Re: RAF BAe146 fleet to be sold

Did wonder if they are expecting Voyager to be used more, but then the RAF will lose its ability to land close to meetings etc and do as the US and others do

Re: Red Arrows display - 2 up in some of the jets

Actually the opposite Kevin, its regular for other display teams to take a back seat during the Reds displays, or sometimes the Blues (Reds engineers) will also get a "thank you" trip.

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

what frequencies might the Dakotas use when at Duxford ? thanks a lot Dave A couple of days ago the used the standard air to ground for Duxford 122.075 and Farnborough LARS 132.8 on their routing down to the south coast. Also worth using 132.9, this is the frequency that Duxford use on airshow days...

"Smaller plane" is a Cessna Caravan, they're heading to the South Coast for an air to air photoshoot.
Thanks MRTT, my parents are good with things like C47/Dakota's and anything military, but a caravan is towed behind a car 😁
