5/2/20 cont/d

Single seat dev typhoon "Fighter" (WTN69) dep 25 @ 1253z; followed by F20ECM G-FRAT which dep @ 1256z as "Target" (which had arr earlier as "Mothball91"). G-FRAT landed back at 1504z. ZJ700/IPA5 "Fighter" landed back @ 1508z. F20E dep1553L back to TeesSide (L/H climbout rather than usual R/H off 25 to NE).

"WTN69" up again briefly @ 1636z in ZK303/AX (BT17). Seen manouevring over Ribble estuary at around 5000ft going W>E appeared to be loft attacks on Warton airfield target. Only a short one recovering @ 1652z after holding briefly for Farnboro' shuttle to depart.

G-JMCM dep as "BAE(Felix)101A" to Brindisi (BDS) according to FR24 @ 1323z. Presume a 1st leg to a final destination (ksa?) but appeared to turn back over France landing back at WRT 1615z with same flt no...

"Strikey" G-FLYY dep 1413z "Tarnish 14" to north operating in Fleetwood area/over Wyre. Returned 1440z (spiral descent from overhead and T/go rwy25), then into visual circuit 2 more t/go's and landed 1448z. Took off again @ 1500z and back into circuit @ 1510z (initials 25) then 3 t/g's @1512/15/17z then another run and break @1519z landing 1521z. First outing of the year for this airframe? Blew a few cobwebs off I bet

Anyone know the 3rd Typhoon parked outside the hangar after the other 2 had departed at 14.25/26pm.

Single seat dev typhoon airborne @ 1548z flown by WTN10. Climbed to FL400 and seen contrailing out to N/NW. Did a supersonic run N>S just after 1600z. Possible shakedown flt? RTB @ 1612z for SRA/Talkdown to rwy25 low app for a further SRA. Nothing showing on adsb (surprise surprise). Low App/overshoot @ 1625z climbed straight ahead.Another SRA + t/go 1631z, joining visual circuit. Further t/gs 1634/37/40z and landed 1642z. Taxied to southern apron which means it's a dev fleet jet.
