Increased Flying 6th Nov-6th Dec

Post by tornado17 » Sat Nov 02, 2019 5:35 pm

Increased flying at Leeming from 6th Nov to 6th Dec, I wonder if this is anything to do with the Swiss and Scotnight? The article indicates various aircraft.

I think that's pretty self explanatory. Scot night exercise missions are flown on those dates

I thought it wasn't starting until the 25th of November? Is it starting earlier or is something else happening first?

Is it limited to 16.00 hours? Some of the NOTAMs show 22.00.

If it’s 22.00 then it may be feasible for me to travel up after work some nights.

Maybe there were to be two exercises running parallel, as the official Leeming site said "The Station will be hosting various multi-national aircraft".
Yorknight hours are showing as above, but as you say the NOTAM is until 22.00 hours and true to form the F-18s are flying into the evening.

Thanks

Probably coming up on Tuesday but I have noted they seem to be flying from late afternoon onwards when it must already be quite dark - hope they are readable
