180FW Stingers divert into Mildenhall 12-6-17

Lucky to be in a position to catch these divert into Mildenhall.

They are enroute home from Kecskemet when a tanker failed to launch from Mildenhall.

Lovely shots! :thumb:

So jealous they all came over Norfolk and then diverted but the cloud blocked my view :grr:

Going to try and get down tomorrow evening hope they are still there!

Cheers,

Many thanks

I have been in your situation many times - I would try and get to Mildenhall in the morning but I know it's sometimes difficult - work etc

Depending on who you believe 15.00 or 16.00 today

Nice photos and well done on picking the right airfield with all the too-ing and fro-ing they did in deciding where to divert into!
Cheers
