SYS635

EC145/Jupiter G-CLKI is back inbound having been at Oxford since 28th September. Now approaching Montford Bridge at 15.30 for an arrival from the west. It was too far west to get a visual but assuming it is still in civil marks.

EC145 ZM501 was crew ferry as SYS635 there and SYS666 back.

New Jupiter showing in circuit this morning

360Radar is showing SYS93 in the circuit at Shawbury at present with a hex of 43C92D. Following the sequence that has been issued so far this should be Jupiter ZM499 and would be the first time I have seen it flying since delivery from Oxford. If anyone sees it and confirms the serial I will let the...

Not seen by me but visiting briefly from c.13.10 was Chinook Vortex 262 which did a talkdown approach on R23. It left for Woodvale afterwards and was confirmed there as ZH895.

Definitely not ZK565 for the 3rd one as that serial doesn't exist! Would be interested to find out if it's actually ZA710.
Thats a good point, I never looked it up, just noted what was showing on adsb!

ZA710 is reported on other sites but I haven't seen any photos to confirm it.

Re: Chinooks Woodvale - Exercise KUKRI DAWN

The first two arrived as Kukri from Swynnerton Barracks in Staffordshire, both with 12 POB. ZA714 was showing on adsb but the second had an incorrect Hex and couldn't decide whether it was ZK565 or ZA710 (or something else). They were definately a pair as they went low level near Cosford but I can't...

Think NATO 03 is going up the Daventry, as Snake 47 has just been told to look out for B52s.

Just heard him on 275.625 direct WTZ (Wattisham) then ING

Flew to Valley 26.8 as SYS635. Today 27.8 ZM498:98 also flew to Valley with ADS-B showing as SYS666. Both confirmed by photos

Brilliant thanks. Looks like they swapped 498 with 501 which came back from Valley as SYS666.

Yes agreed, this is the first time I have seen a Jupiter with hex 43C92B flying so thanks for confirming. It went up to Valley.

Another one is out today 43C92C lifted around 13.05 local routing up towards Chester at the moment as "Shawbury 666"

Re: NOTAM 18/08/20

Sounds like he will descend to FL300 once he has turned southbound from Shawbury

WAND 01 17.05 cleared to Gloucester then Fairford to descend to maintain FL240 but initially descening from FL390 to FL270.

Re: NOTAM 18/08/20

On 252.875 descending to FL500 16.50, yes I thought it said 101! Probably routing towards Shawbury as he seems to be getting clearer but he has storm clouds to get through.
