Re: Yeovil (Westlands) Sightings Winter 2016/2017

EZ-S715 passed Farnborough at 10:20 towards London. Planeplotter was showing him near Compton earlier so a strange routing to come back south and into london via H3?

Re: LOG:REQ:Yeovilton 22/2

Hi looks like the missing hawk was XX250 not 260, close. I didn't note the South African but there was a further Lynx by the museum nose on to Speckington lane, don't need any Lynx's so didn't look closer. Thankfully don't need the South African anyway.

cheers

Re: B-36 query

Just noticed this thread. My dad saw only one of these at Greenham Common in 1958. It is believed this was the last one to visit the UK? At the time my dad was doing odd jobs before being old enough to join the RAF. One of these was drivers 'mate' on a laundry van that delivered to Greenham Common e...
