Are they doing Spadeadam? It's common for foreign forces to use Leeming as a base for activity over Spadeadam.

The Merlins are ZJ136 U and ZJ129 N, the Lynx is XZ617.
The Puma is coded P and is black. I can't recall the number at the moment.
Hope of use,
Mike.

I was at Spadeadam 11-5pm and as far as I was aware the Czech aircraft did not visit Spade today - however they may have made use of SPACES. Low cloud blanketed the range in the morning but there was good visibility in the afternoon with higher cloud and gaps of sunshine. Talon 71, presumed USAF Hercules, was working above the cloud 3000' upwards in the morning, and two Hawks Capture 1&2 came through for a few runs against Smokey SAMs at about 15:50.

No problem. My thanks go to those who posted the 'heads up' for the Czechs at the start.
