But what doesn't make sense to me is that these 2 are displaying together as a pair - where is their spare? :S

EDIT: Some reporting it to be an overheating brake. Wish people wouldn't jump the gun by posting about it WAY too early, saying it is on fire and "it does not look good"... :whistle: :whistle:

There was some flames but put out quickly by staff with fire extinguishers....There was a lot of smoke made it look worse than what it was.

Don't they need to validate before Friday? The Harriers are the stars at RIAT for me this year. Hope it gets fixed.

OLDS01 F-16C from Spangdahlem, on adsb as 96-0080/SP [AE170D] at FL260 over Belgium heading west, most likely the Viper demo aircraft.

Also, DAF3172 M-519 (visual at Leeuwarden) is inbound

Don't think so as it's currently overhead Northampton heading SW.

Seems to be the area where they meet up with the Skyvan inbound for air to air photography.
