Tornado GR.4 ZG775 (as "Rebel 88") looks to be heading that direction too? Currently at FL140 over Wolverhampton. Typhoon ZK335 (as "Rebel 85") also same height and heading, a few minutes behind.

Don't think those fastjets did flypast? Royal Flight S76 G-XXEB appears to have departed at approx 14.44 heading East.

ZG775 held in the Shawbury area, before routing south ,
He has just done a couple of flypasts at Boscombe down, and is now heading back north towards Swindon

Wouldn't surprise me to see an Osprey venture over, maybe

The flypast by the Tornado and Typhoon was for the following .....

(Off 41Sqn Facebook page)
The day has finally arrived. At 14:00 today, we will launch "A Ruddy Awful Waste" at Dorrington Village Hall, Shropshire.

We have re-written the story of Flt Lt Eric Lock DSO DFC & Bar, and cemented his place as one of Britain's true national heroes.

The day will be supported by 41 Sqn RAF, who will be present, and I am honoured that the OC 41 Sqn, Wg Cdr Steve Berry MBE, will be speaking.

As long as the weather does not conspire against us, 41 Sqn will also provide a salute to Lock in the form of a flypast of two of the unit's jets - a Typhoon and a Tornado - at 14:30.

I am also honoured that the launch will be attended by the Deputy Mayor of Shrewsbury, 611 Sqn RAF, the Royal Air Force Association, the Royal Observer Corps Association, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, and Shrewsbury's 1119 Sqn ATC.

It promises to be quite a day. I hope you can join us.
