Weds 6/11/19 cont/d

Single seat typh seen just off Lytham @ 1032z staying fairly low on c/out after ILS+o/s rwy25. C/sign "Typhoon 327" implies ZK327 29Sqn jet. Not showing on mode-S. Weather unfit to proceed up to Lakes for low level. Headed east towards Vale of York/Humberside for period of GH. Climbed FL200 (1038z) and right turn 090° (1041z).

ZK010 now coded FN, 25 Sqn. I thought their 14th jet would be ZK024 obviously not!

Cheers

How strange:

I thought it was ZK010-ZK023 = 4 Sqn/IV & ZK024-Zk037 = 25 Sqn/XXV, so surely ZK010 is IV Sqn?

RAF Hey :whistle:

It's not. ZK024 was originally rumoured to be 25 Sqn's 14th allocated jet but ZK010 noted with new 25 Sqn code at Valley late Oct.

Weds 6/11/19 cont/d cont/d

Typh heard on departure rwy07 @ 1410z. ZJ938 (IPA6) "WTN10" showing on mode-S sites. Actual c/sign "Fighter". IPA6 eyeballed off Lytham on App to 07, straight in to land @1550L.
Another typhoon c/sign "Target" dep 07 @ 1425z. "Target" waited for "Fighter" to get back on the ground before recovering via a Radar SRA/Talkdown to 07. Single seat 41 TES marked typhoon "Target" seen on App 07 and landed 1600z. So either BS116 or BS117 but nothing tracking on adsbexchange for this jet. ZK355 (BS116) was tracking on adsb last week so perhaps it was ZK356 (BS117)?

PS trawled thro logs on the popular mode-S sharing site ( "Albert's Site")
and hey presto found a few hits for ZK356 hexcode 43C77F, callsign "WTN73"!! eg. Holyhead @ 14:36:05z 21000ft SQK 3672.

Cheers

I can hear ZJ938 still flying around between Horwich & Salford.
Why is it flying around here as never noticed/ heard it like this before?

Don’t complain! I’m hearing it as well and makes a nice change to the usual Civilian traffic we get!

I'm not complaining I like to hear the sound & wish they would more often. I would prefer no clouds so I can see it 😉
