This morning's runners and riders up until about 10:30 were:

317 PYRO 31 (held on the ground until 09:00 AM local)
318

306 BREW 71
605

332 RICO 71
218

709 CLAW 21/31? (poor radio in this machine)
008

018 BONES 11
026

516 BUZZARD 11
525

541 CLAW 11
011


316 RATCH21
364

057 DAWG 11
046
049


DAWG flight went to Wales via the Lichfield Corridor. I think PYRO flight went to Europe as they were talking about transiting Holland at one stage. Buzzard worked the ranges and later went to one of the ARA areas.

11/8 to the visiting team!

Think dawg flight was intending mach loop as yours truly was stood up the top of cad West with zero visibility and heard them come over the radio about 11ish local.

Heard them in the vicinity but they then radioed to return to Lakenheath.

It was when the helicopter flew through that I could hear but not see that I decided to quit!

Was chuffed to see 7 of them over the Brecon Beacons on Wednesday, using the old route F15Es used to use.
