Could anyone please estimate a BST landing time? I'm local, nearby on bikes with family and hoping to catch landing. Cheers all.

Hi

Spitfire88 is correct , our system can see the ModeA/C data as soon as it is fired up , usually a few minutes before it lifts.

Spitfire88, is that you Mr Butcher?
It certainly is 👍

Visual from Stroud, short trail
Did you have binoculars? Turned north almost as soon as it lifted from the base. Beautiful weather for a flight up high today.

People like to moan dont forget, especially at the moment whilst all bored and at home. Saying that, not only is it ugly it also has an ear twanging tone to it so i don't blame them ;)
