About the best i could manage of the Chinook depart, but it's ZA670 for sure.

As Pete says, a pair of Lynx are in XZ726/316 and ZD262/315.
Another visitor today was G-OMAF
I was in town when the Chinook came in at around 15:00, but it was immediately (30 seconds)preceded by a Junglie. I am unable to establish if there are two or three Junglies in, can anyone confirm?

Yep, thought I heard it :lol:

This is the Sea Fury earlier if anyone is interested, engine has been removed, now just a bit more dismantling and then should be on its way to North Weald.

The Chinook "Lifter 1 " , went out to floating callsign in Falmouth bay about an hour ago , RFA Argus is showing on AIS so guess it was that ship.Not sure if the Chinook will be returning to CU . " Renegade 1 " is still doing circuits !
