Looking like it will now be week after next before I can get down :@ Hope the Saudis will still be there. Will remember to call at CG1 and 'pay my respects' to the 'family'. (or is Tuesday Club and the Mafia too much of a stretch.........? :P )

stevep22, and all of your bus load of Yorkies, exercise will finish next week but Saudi Air Force will be at CBY for a short time thereafter.

Look forward to seeing you again when you call, as do all colleagues. May even make the extra effort to be on parade listening when they depart.

As this is the chatterbox section, and having scrolled down and seen you, I guess I can say "Good evening hotdog".

Pete,

Too much noise and excitement (on Tuesday at CG1) for any worthwhile chat. Look forward to seeing you again when you're next up.

Ted

One of our very good friends from northern Suffolk - Chief F.O.D. Plod, - council sticker "Don't be a Toxxxr" in rear window will join us on 17th for a day of excitement and general humour. He is likely to arrive early and park in George's pit.

Ted,

No bus load of Yorkies. Looking now to get down on Thursday on a solo mission. Assume our guests will still be in residence.

Evening Steve,

They should still be here and active on Thursday, they have been doing two sorties per day - first sortie at shortly after 10.00l, and second sortie shortly after 14.00l.

This allows ground crew plenty of time to fix ongoing snags for the next sortie/day.

They have been going out in pairs - one RAF with one RSAF type, so 4 pairs of Typhoons and 4 pairs of Tornados.

There is no night flying NOTAMed, and Thursday may be the last exercise day of flying unless there is something still outstanding for Friday.

Cheers, Ted

Provided I can get the day off from work, Thursday it is. Weather looks like it won't be bad. Plan to drive down via a brief stop early doors at Newark to get some snaps of the Viggen whilst it is still outside. (Might photograph some other stuff as well.....) then on to CBY. I wouldn't be able to get there for the morning launches if things are as stated but should be there for the returns and the afternoon session.

Cheers

Steve

A chilly single figure start to Tuesday with increasing cloud bringing rain showers in the afternoon.

The breezy north north westerly will keep temperatures down to 15/16C and should give us runway 25 all day - won't have to veer round very much though to set off the Coningsby Grand Prix.

Thursday, Steve, will be mainly cloudy but dry and a little warmer at 20C in a westerly - runway 25 all day.

Ted, presume if 25 is in use all the departing a/c parked up on the ASP will taxi straight past CG1... ?

Spot on Steve, and those Saudi pilots have been very very good with saluting/waving/air brake waves etc.

I wonder what the Saudi pilots have made of all the attention. The crowds watching, the photographers etc. Assume they don't get too many folk stood on stepladders taking photos over the fence of their home base........ :)

:P I should imagine if you stuck your snout over a Saudi air force fence someone is likely to chop it off :P
