Warton have been on 07 for virtually the whole day so must have been a hairy landing with quite a tailwind. obviously wanted the ILS to 25 not available on 07 in the adverse weather conditions at the time.
C/sign "RSF182" c/n 5779, was the 345th basic C-130J built; Delivered March 2016. One of only 2 KC-130Js to rsaf so far?
should depart Thursday late am.

31/7/19 cont/d

must have been a change of priorities...

ZK439 (BS155) now on MTA (1325L) and no sign of ZK437/BS153. BS155 delivery now tomorrow?

BT17 "WTN69"(+WTN10) dep 25 @ 1405L and back around for a SRA to 25 + low overshoot/go round 1413L then heading off to Valley for more Continuation Training (CT) by looks of it.
seen on recovery over Lytham @ 1519L from Blackpool Apt direction, outbound for SRA (Talkdown) 25 + go round 1526L; then short pattern ILS +T/g; then short pattern SRA + go round 1537L; into visual circuit 2 t/gs & land 1543L (obviously a CT sortie, "Tarnish 10" also heard).
No F20E seen arriving at time specified above. I also had a clear view of cargo apron where they are normally parked and only herk sat there

Cheers

I'd left by then. It wasn't on the MTA when I arrived early afternoon but reported earlier in day and I noted it yesterday on an APU run on the MTA. I thought what's left of the new build typhoons used 302 hangar on north side during PFAT. Used to be based in 358 hangar southside for PFAT so if that's where it was heading then all change again... unless it was heading for paintshop on southside but normally painted post PFAT.

Sorry I think I’ve been mistaken, it was the one due for delivery to Coningsby that was tugged back to the south side hangar.
