Blue21 is showing on the Libhomeraadar site as 87-0119

picked up about an earlier than Blue 11 was on Friday (that is only a rough estimation that they will turn up one hour earlier)

Five of the potential Bureau numbers are posted on the farnborough-aviation-group proboards group

(as usual I dont need them :grr: )

cheers

Mike

Last MLAT fix on Blue 21 was at 16:42 on the TACAN south east of Lyon. That puts them about 1h30 out

I'm trying to understand why some people keep posting in this thread, wouldn't it be best to have locked it a long time ago? :S

Anyone know their numbers? I know you cant get them off the pics in that light, but maybe some one got them when they left.

So, is it going to be worth a long journey tomorrow to see them leaving, or will they not leave until Monday?
