Just been speaking to the crew, going to Pisa today on their way home from training in the USA, they should be home in a weeks time.

You did ask us to find another one. :whistle:

That's much better !

The one over Texas may have been an air test from Kelly AFB

Thanks

PS I will put box on 133.75

A41-208 was using callsign ASY700 - see "Non-UK Heads UP" section.

Unfortunately, Glenn's Brize blogsite shows ASY213/A41-213 as the aircraft expected at 20.30 tonight. I don't think that that one will make it tonight. Don't they nightstop at McGuire before doing the pond crossing??
Cheers, Bob

for a very modern air force, they dont half suffer from some tech issues. Apparently the C-27 will take at least another week to get home, yea, and the rest. lol
