The Buffs are currently over Torino having done a large circuit over Milan, according to FR24. Nowhere near the Quids.

QUIDS over Paris now. Buffs close behind.
If you're going by whats on Freedar then I believe that is a P8 behind the Quids.

029 seems to be taking the scenic route home. Sightseeing over London?

Correction: Sightseeing over Croydon

SANG31 was easy over Gatwick, lit up like a Christmas tree

SANG32 on the wider route over Biggin & Heathrow was invisible from here, no lights seen.

They could have taken a more direct route back!!

Yikes it took forever, I wished they did overnight at Moron now and got myself home earlier.
