Given those times it looks like the usual U-2 mission will be a bit later today.

Not great weather here in Swindon, very windy and quite rainy.

Yes maybe. At least the wind is pretty much down the runway though!

As an aside, when I drove past first thing today the one with the span/pod on top was outside the hangar. Then when I drove back past again later that one had been put away and one of the non-span/ pod ones was outside instead. Would anyone know which the second one was, please?

Just a reminder 80-1085 should also still be present, likely hangared.

That’s the one I was hoping to see today. Alas. Thanks all.

My thoughts as well. I assume that's what it was, as the flight plan disappeared mid morning.

If it's not, it may have gone Sunday, as I heard 1 call of what sounded like Dragon 86 about 11:30. I was away from the radio with my hands full, so I may have misheard. I did check later, but there was no Notam so I ignored it. :unsure:

Its still here. Might be broken or may be having a `phase` inspection here rather than back home - who knows?
