Re: NOTAMs for Flypasts

Could Friday's have something to do with the Polish airmen's reunion that's on this weekend? Especially as Northolt is closed.

Re: Exercise Ample Strike and Bomber Task Force General Questions.

The 509th Press Office have been quoted by Scramble as saying the B2's will not be taking part in any external exercises. and the deployment will end when the B2 crews have completed their assigned tasks.
Make of that what you will.

Re: Patrouille de France 2 accident - off runway

Adderman, You'll have trouble seeing E-2. It was the Dassault Demonstrator. It crashed in Egypt on the 16-09-1978. and was subsequently written off. Or has it been resurrected?
