I wonder how many a/c involved. Hope to be able to see them, but will obviously depend on precise route.

I'm hoping to see them too, hopefully they pass close enough to the west of Lincoln/Waddo for me to see them.

Think there must be a fair few, I was thinking 6-8?

Wouldn't think a 4 ship would need a NOTAM....

Haven't seen or heard them so far. Nothing on ADS-B. Anyone had better luck?

The Leeming FB page reckons that only 3 are due, strange having a NOTAM for just 3 aircraft! :S

Interesting that the notam route had them basically following main roads (A14 / M11 / A1 ) not cross country.
