Re: REQ: Eurofighters on the 18th

Clearly Baz hadn't read them either, or he'd know there wasn't one for the day in question. :Oops:

Looks like the logs dwindled as the exercise went on, interest faded.

Re: ZH107

Yes, at the moment only ZH103 is airworthy. ZH107 has not flown since receiving its special 54 squadron tail paint some years ago, and it's now withdrawn from use. ZH105 was the first to be withdrawn some time ago, and has basically been the first sacrifice to help the others, loosing it's outer win...

ZH107

E3D ZH107 has just been towed from alpha dispersal in to the Awacs hangar on Alpha.

Is this the last we see of it as a complete airframe?

ZH106 has appeared on the left of alpha, where the RJ was parked earlier in the week.

Potentially mean we may have two airworthy E3 again soon?

Re: Cobra Catch Up

Where did you end up for the top side recovery shots?

I tried a back lane to the south west of Branston with some reasonable results.

Re: W/c 9 September - just a regular week?

Cobra Warrior is still on, so will see aircraft participating in that in the morning. Would guess normal flying for those not included.

Best to check the bbmf board when you arrive.

Re: Waddington Cobra Worrier Frequency List Request

Hi,

The frequencies haven't changed, there was a notam saying director and Tower had swapped but this doesn't appear to have happened. I'll get you a few more frequencies I've picked up this past week later, unless someone comes back sooner.

Re: Flying on Tuesday the 10th and Wednesday 11th?

There's been two launches every day apart from Friday this week. You should see plenty going Tuesday and Wednesday.

If you go back through the daily logs you can see the pattern and timings.
