Thurs 16/05/19 Additions/Corrections
1236L it was ZK379 (a T3 last 3 serial on fin no EB- code applied on fin but 41TES front fuselage mks) that did a fly through along rwy 25 as Tarnish 29 in IPA6/ZJ938 prepped for the performance take-off on 07. Don't think this was "RBL60" though...
BS116 "RBL62" was working with "RBL60" which would have been the 41 TES jet you mentioned.
IPA6 recovered with initials 07 @ 1357L, t/g 1359L & landed 1401L.
ZK355 (BS116) initials 07 & low overshoot 1429L, landed 1431L.
Up later was ZJ700 (IPA5) "WTN69". T/o 07 @
1637L (seen 1638L climbout to WNW); climbed to FL450 for high speed descent down to FL300 & back up to FL450 in the "corridor" (1652L).
Seen later on approach to rwy 07 (SRA/
Talkdown?) @ 1735L just off Lytham & landed back 1736L.

Met up with Martin from Oldbury after a splendid lunch at Dizzy
Ducks went down to Warton and parked on the mound.

Taking nothing away from martins splendid description of the rotation of the
pair of Typhoons other than to say to stand on the mound and be subjected
to the pairs takeoff with 4 EJ 200 engines on full military power is a joy to
behold, if you like that sort of thing.

When the pair of Typhoons returned to Warton we had a pairs approach
and GH in the Warton overhead as previously described by Martin G.
