Re: REDS move to Waddington, facts & rumours

Sounds like they are doing PDA now.

Up in 313. Red1 just gave a pep talk, ended in 'lets go earn those Red suits'.

Re: REDS move to Waddington, facts & rumours

Possibly, no NOTAM up for Cranwell as yet. Just going off what Red 1 put on his instagram feed on Monday evening. I think for PDA they have to take in at least 2 different displays sites, seem to remember from the recent tv shows about them. Weather looks poor for this week, next is much better, may...

Re: REDS move to Waddington, facts & rumours

The issue with airspace for the Reds is they are not always (in Scamptons case) North West of the runway for their displays, especially when training over the winter months, they can practice anywhere in the circle of R313, the south side of it is almost touching the Cathedral. So any new location w...

Re: Lakenheath Thursday 9th July

I think the best thing to do is see how the week goes. There's a few NOTAM's out for Lakenheath and their runway, but they only cover a short period each day saying no movements south side of the runway. Probably check the NOTAM's and logs from the 7th when they re open, gives him a day or two decid...

Re: Coningsby Opening Hours Week Commencing 6th July 2020

The NOTAM will almost certainly be correct, there a three slots very close together on your list which is unusual, maybe they were proposed dates, not actual dates? Based aircraft do occasionally operate out of advertised times, but it's normally something in a morning before advertised opening time...

Re: Re: Reds to Syerston/Donna UPDATED July

Reds managed to get both slots in today, guess both were flat or rolling with the cloud.

Maybe go for PDA soon, although not sure where they will be displaying at, if at all.

Re: Ebay kit bargains

I bought a Nimrod on Ebay last week for £42, they do sometimes go for higher.

There are a lot of people doing kits now with lockdown, there's been a surge, now is the time to get them up.

I might be interested in the Valiant and Ec-135 as well - any idea on price? Send me a PM if you like.

Re: Reds to Syerston, UPDATED 12th/30th June

They are not planned to be anywhere else.

If recent patterns are anything to go by, they are up sometime between 9 and 10 and then again between 11.30 and 12.30.

They have only done three sorties in one day Thursday and Friday last week, all other days for a long time have only been two.
