F35 at Lunchtime

Post by Bluerigger1 » Fri Nov 08, 2019 12:48 pm

Just had a series of approaches from a F35. Did anybody manage to identify which airframe it was ?

F-35B ZM144 ‘Snake21’
F-35B ZM147 ‘Snake22’
were the pair, new squadron callsign I believe?
If it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all...

The Marham thread reports these as SNEAK which is also what I heard them use as they call Swanwick on 252.875 on the way back

Nice one.
ZM147 on at least 3rd visit (also on 24/1/19 + 31/7/19).
ZM144 should be a 1st visit.
Only one F-35 has done a pd to Warton so far!

Cheers
