Got some free time on Monday while visiting family, just wondering if they will still be there/flying and if anyone knows their operating hours? Many thanks in advance.

Some of them certainly were last night - up to 2200. I could hear them 10 miles away!

Hi to all,
Heard from various sources that the 16's will be departing this Monday coming (21.09.20).
Can anyone confirm this please as I'm trying to save a friend from a 400 mile wasted journey.
All the best
Andy

They were originally planned to stay for a month I believe, 4 weeks will take them up to next Friday.
Monday seems an odd day to go home as well.
