To answer Paulgul question is that "yes" there appears to be an exercise due soon that is probably what the B747 arrival could be about, no doubt more info will be posted by the usual forum contributors that are far better informed than me as to the details but there is some info from recent threads in the last couple of days.

I'm led to believe it's two separate exercises, hence both B-2s & B-52s.

If it's either B-2s or 52s or both it would be nice. We'll see.

Correct in saying there's a second 747 due tomorrow?
