Approx 6 tucanos det to Valley for week or so, they were operating off Seahawk Apron which the Texans use (ZF145/171/239/491/515 all seen Mon 5/8 also ZF135 noted active in area from Mode-S). They must have swopped a one or two during the week as ZF448 not seen.
"WTN10" up early pm. In circuit 1350L & land.
Believed to have been BS153 on PFAT2.
Cheers

Tues 13/08/19

ZK437/BS153 "WTN69" sporty T/o burners in near vertical climb and roll off the top @ 1544L on PFAT3. "WTN69" showing on adsb with expected hexcode 43C7AE. Recovered from the north and east with an ILS to rwy 25 & low overshoot @ 1710L. One circuit and landed 1713L. Yet another late afternoon sortie courtesy of Tarnish 69. Apparently flt.2 was last Fri afternoon with "WTN10" flying it. I wasn't in the area so missed it.

Thurs 15/8 cont/d

Note: ZK026 is now coded FB in 25 Sqn mks (since Oct-Nov last year). There are (at least) 10 T2s now carrying full XXV mks (codes FA/FB/FD/FE/FH/FI/FJ/FK/FL/FM). ZK037 was still coded AB on 10/7 but had been remarked/recoded FM by 14/7! So now ZK027/030/031 not noted yet carrying XXV mks/codes (to become FC/FF/FG respectively). There may be an additional jet allocated to 25 Sqn making 14 jets each, with 4 Sqn possibly "loosing" ZK024 to 25 Sqn and this being coded FN. Will shall see.

OTT/Local area

Herk C.4 ZH875 [43C1FF] "Ascot134" seen N>S over Lytham area @ 1501L FL200 RTB BZN
