It maybe Fairford but operating up in Norway
If you read the article it states quite clearly in the first paragraph that they are being based at Ørland, Norway. There is no mention of Fairford, or indeed the UK as a whole

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2021 - General Discussion Thread

There's nothing like posting a totally unfounded rumour on a public forum is there!
Whether it turns out to be true or not, I really think it's very careless at best in the current climate. People really should engage brain before fingers over this sort of thing.

We will have to wait for the relevant LN notam to be sure, but don’t expect any flying between Christmas and new year.

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2021 - Tickets on sale

It seems pretty clear that Covid is a seasonal disease. Bear in mind as well that excess deaths are still around average for this time of year. I think its incredibly unlikely that there'll be an unusually bad health situation come the Spring, let alone the Summer. When you consider that RIAT is vi...

Re: Yorknight 2020

Spent most days at Leeming last year when this Ex was on and I can honestly say it was not even worth travelling to Leeming. First sorties were not till around 14:00 to 15:00, & there was no Practice diverts what made each trip even worse. Morning entertainment during the exercise was Hawks & Grobs...

Re: Aviano F-16 Deployment?

Last week first movements on Tuesday and Wednesday were between 12 and 12.30 launching 9 Eagles. Then there was a quiet period until 3pm when all hell broke loose with mixed type take offs totalling 30 and 27 respectively. These returned around the golden hour. Later launches others will have to com...

Re: Ex Chameleon Aircrafts

Sorry, this was my mistake but here are the facts. There was one Shadow on the ground at Leuchars yesterday morning whose serial definitely ended in 7 and whose paint scheme was predominantly white with a red and blue swooshy cheat line and a grey belly. Kind of narrows it down, doesn't it? There's...
