Re: 48th at Honington

Heard two (probable) development jets depart on 07 about that time. Callsigns were Fighter and Target.
That would have been them then.
Looked like Typhoons.
Thanks.

Re: Nov 2019 Logs/Movements

Anyone know what the two fast jets where over Preston heading north around 2.30 today.
Saw them from a distance,first though they might have been typhoons from Warton on a easterly take off with a lazy left turn onto north.
Now I’m not so sure with no mention of them on here.

Re: July 2019 Log/Movements

Seen these two Pumas the last few nights very late over Preston.
They both landed at the police HQ at 1.30 am this morning making a hell of a noise,great stuff.
They then went to Woodvale.

Re: Hickham Spotting

I've been down Lagoon Drive and the civil aircraft are well above you by then so anything like a f-22 will be long gone.
Enjoyed just hanging out round the beaches and seeing aircraft in the distance on take off.

We haven't seen any at Warton.
Would have thought one would have been up here well before now, or Salmesbury.

Tornados were awesome. Naze Lane was manic though. Honestly surprised police didn’t turn up the way people were parking blocking the road etc I was there,bet 70% of them where there just because they have heard about it on Facebook and desperate to take the kids out somewhere.
