Holbeach saying Rack - 494FS have cancelled ( they did say Typhoons at 15:30 and eagles at 16:40)

Custer 61 are doing Muckleburgh after the tanker

As I was leaving Custer 62 was back with some ammo but suffered a malfunction and went back to Swanwick

Custer 61/62 this morning were 91-0326 and 91-0320

Only Custer 61 this morning was live firing

Annoyingly at Holbeach when eagles approach from the right you are on the wrong side for taking shots of the cannon.
This morning the attack run was on a 340° heading.

I like the above photo - I was stood on the bank by the tower so they are in front of you , I guess it depends on on what panel they are shooting at. You can't walk out over the mud flats , can you?.

No, You can't walk out ,You have to stay on the sea wall but if you head right you end up under them.
