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?

Re: ADSB mobile problems!

I've tried this and I get the desktop layout that has the advert bar across the middle and the bit to close it down after 20 seconds is off the screen so I can't close it! It used to come up in an Android friendly version but not any more.

Bucky, 97-0303 and 97-0321 were both operating in the NWMTA that morning with Claw callsigns but I can't tell you for sure as there were four up at the same time and some came back via the Lichfield corridor.
Many thanks.

Claw 1 & 2 PD

Does anyone have the IDs for the 2 F15's that did a PD today around 11am, I believe the callsigns were Claw 1 & 2? Many thanks.

Re: Memories - Who Remembers.1978

I remember Wittering in about '87 when 12 A7s arrived and the A1 was lined on both sides with hundreds of cars! Police were offering £20 fines if you didn't move when asked, a lot of fines were paid that day!
