Seen these two Pumas the last few nights very late over Preston.
They both landed at the police HQ at 1.30 am this morning making a hell of a noise,great stuff.
They then went to Woodvale.

PS although not related to Warton or immediate local area another Puma HC2 XW213 "Warlock3"
was showing in the Kirkby area at around 1510L
on adsb down to about 150ft. Hence my guess at callsign for pair.

Is the replacing G-OWTN or an addition to it? :S

Or could be replacement for BAE 146 - G-TYPH? (last flew on 26/6)
G-OWTN has been flying today on usual Farnborough run (BAE41 & BAE42 on RTB)

Go Felix/G-OFLX? "Felix" is callsign for BAES Corporate Aircraft Transport (CAT) so seems apt reg. Presume 146 going. Interesting callsign for Hawk "Chaos"? 3 Sqn callsign!
