UAV's over Spadeadam

Post by yellowcake-uf6 » Wed Sep 23, 2020 2:37 pm

I just noticed on ADS-B Exchange, 2 x UAV's operating over Spadeadam. BBUAV02 and 06, one at 1,800ft and the other at 2,300ft. Any clue what they are...?

Drone 04 is showing now over Spadeadam has it has recently and appears to be registered to Cranfield University so probably more than a photographic/survey sortie ?

BBUAV 4 has been joined by BBUAV 02 03 and BBUAV/06. Oh to be a Thursday Boy Again.

I'm just glad I seen the end of the good old days as one of the Thursday squad. Not a week goes by when I don't think about the guys and the times we shared.

These were the drone swarm trials that the MoD has been talking about.
