Waddington 15th May.

Post by reaper493 » Wed May 15, 2019 9:03 am

Popped for an hour before work.

Sentries on Alpha:
01, 02, 03, 05, 06, 07.

Sentinels on foxtrot:
One sentinel looked to depart, taxi'd half way down alpha then stopped, too hazy to read off.
Plus one other parked, these two are probably 692/694 as both have been active lately.

2x Shadows launched,
ZZ418 did a couple of circuits, then departed to the north east, showed as Widget 48.
ZZ419 departed North East, showed as Snake 49.

No Rjs present, ZZ665 left around 7.30am, presume ZZ666 is broken and hangared again?

Looks like 694 has just departed as well, confirms the two that were out this morning.

Yes, ZZ666 was sat outside on Monday evening. Must have been put back into the hangar as it wasn’t there this evening either.
