Pair of BBMF Spitfires dancing over Donington (north of Spalding) this morning. Lovely.

Re: RAF Ranges

Next they will be doing all this range work on a simulator!! They already are, and have been since I left Holbeach, and The Mob, in 2007. I think most profiles are medium to high level now, very little low level attacks like the Tonkas and Jags used to do. Only low level stuff tends to be helos and...

I'm an exiled Geordie. It's a compliment.

Re: Chaff and Flare Usage During Exercises

I seem to remember when I was working at Eastern/London Radar at West Drayton in the early to mid 90's that the Cobham/FRADU Falcon 20s operating out of Teesside used to deploy chaff over the North Sea during the "Thursday Wars" - big splodges of radar returns which took an age to clear....
