Hi All,

Don't often post on here, should look more often for the scoops on movements!

Does anyone know how long they are at LN for? Ive got a couple of days off and trying to decide where to go/what to see. Got a long drive up from Surrey so wondering if theyre still going to be there tomorrow?

They're using the usual place, opposite the 'lay-by'. All nose-on. Not easy to see given the new building that's going up, but all readable with patience. The best spot is probably about 200 yards towards the main gate from the 'lay-by', clamber through the ferns up to the field fence to get extra height.

Parked in serial order, 12-1044 the furthest right; 12-1082 the furthest left. (12-1062, 12-1080, 12-1081 the others).

Regards

Simon
