Guys

What's the latest on these
Which one is in the hangar and are the rest still outside
I still need ZJ693

Thanks in advance
Pete
ZJ693 was one of two outside this afternoon between 16:00 and 17:15 (ish).
The other was unreadable (light grey serial on slightly lighter grey)
Both were on the tower ramp area. Only two sentinals noted sadly.

Many thanks

693 was still out yesterday. Easily identifiable with its faded flat colour and red bar.
There is one parked next to it, it will probably take a walk down the A15 towards Sleaford to read it off. Arrive early to avoid the heat haze. It may well be 690 as per last week.

If you want to arrive mega early, RC135 may be out between 6/6.30.

Possibly something from Brize due as well.

Mike

690 & 693 outside at present, the others are hangared. All 5 will be outside and should be readable from the A15 next week.

Many thanks for the sentinel update. I’m still after 692 so any update next week is much appreciated.

Does anyone know which 2 were parked out today (south of the 2 RC135's) one with 5 Sqn red bar?
Thanks

The one with the bar is 693, the other probably 690 as previously reported.

Morning,
Has anyone been, and noted all 5 outside?
I am assuming the airfield is closed as bank Holiday but if all 5 were outside I would do the journey, as I still require 2 of them.

Many thanks for any information,
Ian.

Thanks Thor, I have the two outside, so will sit back and wait for the others to appear from their hiding place.
