Re: Machloop ban

I seen this also, guess it’s the waiting game of whether anything passes through.

I believe it’s just Hawks and Texans at the moment but even they’re sporadic.

Do we think that the updates may start today?
I think they have forgotten about that part of the Airshow. :lol:
Hang on, RIAT is an air show? Here was me thinking it was part fun fair and part dinner party hosted on an air field!

Re: Altcar 2020

Thanks, the fuel tanker is where I think the Merlins were last year. I’m planning to hang around for a while anyway yet. My luck would be that they return 5 mins after I leave otherwise!

Re: Altcar 2020

Been here around an hour. Two wildcats on the field both covered. No signs of anything else other than a fuel tanker that arrived and parked in the middle of a field.

Re: Altcar 2020

All I can now answer my own question. If you walk up the path by the railway you come to the 2 Wildcats. It is then quite a long walk until you get to the Merlins. We were only able to see the 3 grey ones, one which took off, there is probably one spot where you may be able to see all 3, otherwise ...

Re: Royal International Air Tattoo 2020 Discussion Thread

Judging from the last few years we’ve always had an announcement of a participant on the first working Thursday of the year. I wonder if anything is revealed later?

I’ve seen on another group that two Typhoons have departed this morning? Presumably off to Finland, unsure of serials I’m afraid.

Re: USAF launches 52 F-35A's

One day, there will be a post about the F-35 without pointless and unnecessary slandering of it. :whistle: :whistle: Also, SPERX - Just remember. We ain't the US. We don't have their budget. We’re also not in the 1970’s anymore. I don’t understand people’s fixation on the EE Lightning, yes I unders...

You include link mate?

Listed under exercises in January 2020. Assuming it’ll be a similar set up to those that the Swiss (I think) did last year.

Re: January 2020 Log/Movements

I note on scramble it is listing 2 x Typhoons going to Finland tomorrow to commence Hx fighter trials. Assuming that even though these are listed as RAF they’ll in fact be two of the BAE test jets?

Quickest would be fly to Amsterdam and then hire a car ,depends on your personal plans
Ferry would leave you with more driving ,but gives you more options as in more bases to visit on route.
Thanks, considering all options at the moment.

Re: 15/1/19 Altcar

Is this an annual exercise or was it a one-off last year? I can’t find anything on the scramble summary regarding this.

Usually nearly as good as an airshow Frisian flag on 23 March -4 April
Rumour circulating mention California ANG F-15s taking part.
What would be the best method of travel to Leuwarden? Guessing either flying to Amsterdam / Eindhoven and hire a car or get the ferry from Hull to Rotterdam?

Re: Lakenheath Christmas closure NOTAM

Like I said it’s a 6 hour round trip for me so if LN is dead it’s a lot of wasted time. Might wait it out and see how tomorrow is and if it’s active I’ll head up Friday morning and do Mildenhall in the afternoon.

I’m considering visiting on 2nd or 3rd for this very reason. However it’s a 6 hour round trip for me and Sod’s law says nothing will happen till the 6th if I do!

Re: Lakenheath

I’ve heard they’re flying F-117 Night Hawks as a christmas surprise for the serving families. I would recommend being at the viewing area from 5am though until around10pm, they’re likely to use the cover of darkness so they’re not spotted by civilians!
