Re: NOTAM 05/11/19

It's not as if there are dozens of daily movements here to clog up the system! There are currently 3 different things going on, the B52s, the U2s and the occasional RCH transition movement.

Persimmons, I believe, have a business model that for every 3 houses they build 2 are pure profit, that's around 66% profit on every house! No wonder they were the first builder to make £1 billion profit in a year and afte...

445! Bagged over 340 at DM in 1992, some of which I'd previously seen in the UK at Fairford, Brize Norton and Upper Heyford during the 80's!

It was definitely the 10th, they were all parked on the north east ramp area, probably around 11.30 am ish. There was nothing there on the 14th 7pm when we departed.

Should have been kept in house instead of contracting out! Privatisation costs considerably more and reduces overall control and efficiency!

Going by todays visitors, it seems that the mil traffic that would have gone to Northolt are going to use Benson instead during the runway works.

Just had this in an e-mail from RIAT!
You may have missed our aircraft announcement last Friday! We're pleased to confirm the Air Tattoo debut of the Hellenic Air Force's 'Daedalus' Demo Team flying a single T-6A Texan II turboprop trainer! (This is not an April fool's joke!)

Re: C17s to Fairford

Late 80's we had regular deployments to Fairford of 7 B52's, I think about 2 per year, before that we had deployments of 3 to Upper Heyford ( at least 3 that I can remember) Brize had 3 at a time around 2 per year and then Fairford with 3 which increased to 7 in later years.

New CV22 ?

Just seen on ADSB was a CV22 showing as Knife71 05-0028, is this correct or is it showing a false ID?
