I'm fairly certain Fighter2 was T.29 judging by the typical RTB Approach to EGNO over Blackpool/Lytham area seen @16:58L

Hi Chris,
I noticed an adsb trace for 43C7A7 which should be ZK430 over lunchtime today indicating height 100' in the vicinity of Warton which for that height would be an approach or overshoot
However I did not get chance to check moments later to see if he went out over the Irish Sea or perhaps an arrival for Warton as apparently some a/c may be coming back for storage
Regards,
Paul

Could well have been Chris. His Callsign was "Target 1" on recovery. Tracked just nth of me in Lytham whilst inbound to Warton. Joined the overhead then a go round, gear up (1701L); did "high circuits"; 3 T/gs (1704/07/11L); land 1714L.
"Fighter1" seen over Lytham inbound @ 1653L;
T/g 1656L & landed 1658L.
Although a civvie, PA-42-720 Cheyenne 3 N7139B on PlaneFinder indicating ATD WRT 1527L SQK 3661; operating on NNW-SSE tracks off Cumbrian coast mostly at FL160; held over south bank of Ribble as "Target1" recovered. Was this connected to the typhoon/FA20 combo in any way I wonder?
