Looks like change of plan - He’s now heading south. Just passed Carlisle
Strange! As it seemed initially to be heading tothe West, then decided to follow a Northerly route, then as stated, lost him behind Arthur's Seat. I presumed he was going to go around Fife to return to the North Berwick hold.Cheers for the info! :thumbs:

He routed round the north side of the Forth then crossed back into East Lothian around North Berwick and then headed directly south

Weather looks like it will be fine. Does anyone know what’s scheduled? Bet it’s Typhoons

I’m praying it’s Typhoons as well, really hoped for F-35s but seeing as they don’t seem to come anywhere near Scotland thought against it.

Sorry to ask the same old question, take it no one knows the IDs for the Typhoons? I know it's too dark to read them off.

They didn't even show up on any ADSB radar, so no possible serials even if we did trust their hex-code

For some reason when I logged on earlier, none of the recent posts showed up including the 3:4pm one.
