I went past today at about 3:15 and there was an Atlas on the approach
I might sometimes miss my time in the RAF - so every month it reminds me how great it was, with an obscenely big cheque

Many Thanks.
So the Atlas must have been Ascot467

Nice to see some pics from Waddo for a change. Usually seems to be ignored for some reason.

The two Phenoms have been parked up since 3rd July after a rumoured mid air whilst practicing for the RAF 100 Flypast. There's a full topic about it in the Waddington section.

The RAF Phenoms were never scheduled to be part of the RAF 100 flypast. The rehearsal for that took place on abeam Cranwell at 1300 on 3rd July, it didn’t feature any Phenoms.

If you look at the ADSB play back, you will find that the Phenom “incident” took place around 1530ish.
