Wait for the next NOTAM down the line for a landing slot sometime around 22.00L Stansted (possible but means a late helicopter shuttle into London) or Newquay, with a leisurely meeting with Bori...

Re: The Buccaneer Aviation Group

Thanks Andy for the quick and informative reply. I for one am happy to wait to see the Buccaneers again. Last thing the group need is any bad press form the local nimby about people gagging over the fences when the airfield cafe / viewing area could make a few quid selling teas / coffee.

Congratulation to all concerned for getting this far with the massive project that was the relocation from Bruntingthorpe. Just a couple of questions... How friendly are Kemble's owners towards the the group and the expected interest from the general public wanting to see and hear the Buccaneers tax...

Re: UK G7 2021- Tittle Tattle

The E-4 at Stansted few months was carrying the US Secretary of Defence on a European tour. Mildenhall NOTAM closed could mean the E-4 and the medical C-32 will be based there.

There was a rumour that the RAF Sentential fleet was going to be handed over for USAF / US Army use.
Expect there would be far to many differences airframe and avionics for this to work ?

Re: **CANCELLED** New Flying Legends @ Sywell July 2021

Agreed the financial risk for the un-recoverable expenses is too great for the Flying Legends team to take. But the only reason there is a risk in the first place is the non committed attitude of the British Government, and the Governments refusal to pay compensation if event have to be cancelled. W...

Followed by (usually by two) C-32 2xVH-60 plus 3xVH-22 transit into London (US Army CH-47 might also be used) The helicopters will have been delivered by C-17s into Mildenhall, the Ospreys tanker supported by KC-130J Thursday...
