Milton Keynes Puma 11/09/2019

Post by rh226 » Fri Jan 11, 2019 4:45 pm

At about 12.45z today (11/01/2019) a Puma lifted off from Southern Milton Keynes. It then proceeded approximately SW at very low level.

Unfortunately, I was doing about 70mph on the Westbound A421 at the time, so was unable to do anything other than say "That's a Puma" as it crossed my line of sight.

I would be most grateful if anyone could ID it for me please.

Many thanks,

Bob

Bob,

The only two Puma's I picked up on my Airnav ADSB system operating out of Benson on Friday were XW217 and ZJ956 - both were coming and going all day long, so it seems likely it was one of these two.

ZJ956 was operating locally at 12:30, suggesting XW217 might be the more likely, but I guess Milton Keynes is only about 15 minutes flying time from Benson so either of them is a possibility.

Sorry I can't be more definitive.

Roger

Many thanks, John.

Unfortunately I don't need either one of those. I've also checked Albert's site https://www.live-military-mode-s.eu/ and found just the same two.

Once again, thanks for your help.
Cheers, Bob
