First Lynx showed up this afternoon. XZ609 c/s AAC953 looks to be staying overnight. 2 Oshkosh tankers are now on the apron. 18:00L

Rob, Merlins were ZJ121 ZJ124 and a Lynx XJ679. Unsure of a third Merlin.

Drove round by the airport approx. an hour ago.Roughly 8-10 Army vehicles parked up with 4 Oshkosh tankers also in attendance.2 with hoses out to the middle of the apron.

1 Apache sitting stationery and 1 Lynx also stationery parked up at the top end of runway 01/19 (ECM end)

Didnt look like much happening as I went round but can't comment on movement the rest of the day.

Poison, your Apache was ZJ221 and the Lynx was ZG886. I spent most of the day at Carlisle and the only other military movement was Lynx ZG884. I had two Chinooks go over me at 5.25ish North of Longtown on my way home. There appeared to be some activity at Spade, and I suspect that there may be a FARP set up there, as there was no sight at Carlisle, of the Chinooks and Pumas, that were working the range.

Thanks for that Toom317a.I would assume there will be some movements in to Carlisle either overnight or tomorrow as it seems there is too many tankers there for 1 Apache and 2 Lynx.

Im sure someone will provide an answer in due course.

Chinooks x2 and in the afternoon 1x 9A were shut down at Spadeadam, though the Lynx appeared to be at Berry Hill the Chinooks sounded and appeared to lift more from near the radar tower area. At 1900L 1 Lynx and Chinook landed on at Carlisle for fuel while the remaining 3 aircraft (Lynx, Chinook and AH) were still operating the range Chinooks USL from Prior Lancy way between 1700 and 1900L. No visual sign of Merlins or Pumas from myself all day, although Warlock C/S was noted in the area along with C/S Omen, a C-130J.

Merlins currently in Spadeadam ZJ121 / ZJ990. Radio saying weather closing in and is unsuitable for Pumas.

Just to add to Duanes report. All together there were 3 C-130's on the range early afternoon, all under Omen Callsigns. Believe two foreign (1 possibly Swedish) the other RAF. Intended on para drop but cabcelled due to low cloud cover,
