Chrimbo Cheers Chris, hope there is plenty of material for a Yuletide log. Still on Holy Is, just off Anglesey, in case you hadn't guessed...
I presume ZK350 will be "delivered" to Cby before their Christmas shutdown.

I saw it returning to Valley (initials rwy19 and arrived @ 1137z). There were a pair that transitted over the Fylde back to Valley from the Dales area (seen from Lytham) but they didnt do a flythrough at Warton (or passed thro their overhead as far as Im aware, but tracked slightly further nth). ZM323 (the Fairford exhibit then still with N-reg) has been active in 3 weeks. Nice to see them going further afield than Liverpool and Hawarden. I think ZM332 was over in Cranwell direction yesterday. ZM323 "VYT78" did an approach to Waddo late afternoon Mon, after circuits at Cranwell (returned CWL for stopover?).

Cheers

One did night stop at Cranwell Monday, and flew later on Tuesday from memory. And was joined briefly by a pair which lunchstopped.

It may well have stayed till yesterday. I haven't kept up with proceedings

ZM332+327 "Rocket 1/2" I think were the pair that went to Cranwell Tues 3/11 & lunchstopped. Then routed back as singletons as far as Im aware both showing on adsb with "RCKT2" callsigns, bit confusing.

Cheers

It could have been the "target" yesterday I suppose, but I believe both typhoons on the 2 ship sortie taxied back to southside (358 apron) where the development jets are parked. Most likely the target was one of the 41TES single seats. The single ship that went up later was definately a development jet as comms with Boffin.

ZK350 may be gone before Christmas shutdown. You noted it up on a second airtest last Thurs (5/12) if I recall.

Cheers
