Re: NOTAM , 4 May for 'Formation flying'

Just in Thirsk watching the 9 ship formation flying alongside a 10th Tucano.

Would anyone have the registrations of today's flyers.

Thanks for your help.

Re: FAF Alphas

Quick visit last night at 6pm - 4 alphas on the ramp with covers on canopies and 3 chinook's just winding down.

The visitors area was immaculate with no rubbish anywhere.

Thanks for the information - should really have picked the difference between those two, although I was 10 miles out ( my excuse and i'm holding onto it ! )

V-22 Ospreys

Hi

Does anyone have any information on the two Ospreys heading Eastbound lowish level over Northallerton last night at C 21.45 ?

Quite a surprise to see them but a good one.

Thanks

Re: Log 25.02.2015

Hi Guys

Thanks for the replies.

I am guessing my beech was actually the shadow then, as they look similar.

Has the Skyvan recently been painted in military colours as I am sure I saw it last year in a more civilian livery ?

Re: Log 10/4/14

I had heard that cut backs had meant there wasnt the staff to open and shut it these days - it would be a pity if this was the case.

I cant see any other logical reason, as there are no exercises on at the moment and it has been permenantely shut for quite a while now
