Just about to depart as a 3 ship apparently, runway 27.
There is a separate thread for B52 movements.

I've just seen something looked like a b52 go over Northampton at about 1630
Are there any up or inbound?
Maybe it was a KC 135?
Large with four engines headed SW in direction of Fairford or Brize.
Can anyone help?
Well if it was a B52 it would have had eight engines for starters.

Re: What is this aircraft up to?

Currently on 124.150 saying their mission is to do nine lines, north to south and vice versa for 1.5 hours.

Not sure why though?!

What is this aircraft up to?

Saw this flight today, Swiss Airf Flight 70 and wondered what the track was all about? Came up from Saint Malo in France and then over towards Marham.

Re: TR-1/U-2 Patch

I didn't know if it was that old or not and also was not sure about it being printed, rather than a fully embroidered patch. I can't see any examples of this online anywhere. Do you have any links to others like this one?

Thanks for the info.

TR-1/U-2 Patch

Found this patch in my collection, and wondered if it had much value?

It appears to be a printed patch on yellow, and then it's been embroidered around the edges.

Re: Feeding Fairford

Two pallets of water a week... do they not have running water in Fairford? Or is this special American water?
