Heads up for what Graham? ? Local movements? ?
If so. Then think it's just a case there hasn't been as many movements of late. :whistle:

looking back at the last couple of years people tend to no whats coming before its even taken off but lately its as we see it or on pp. surely we have people that no the insiders that might be... for example when the cafe was open they had a list what to expect and they were pretty good. this rafale for example also surely some one no's something. dose anyone no CU traffic controllers?

Quite remarkable!At the very same time as you were dripping about the lack of info, a pair of visiting Falcons were working the circuit! Why did you not tell the rest of us about that?

Problem is Graham, movements aren't as frequent as they use to be at Culdrose or any other airfield for that matter!
There for its not that people aren't saying if and when thing are due in.. its just they aren't visiting in the first place. !!
Back in the day a note would be left with your early morning milk delivery of what was in or due in :whistle: Some of the older locals will know what I mean by that ;)

I post when I can.. but I can't always during the day as I'm at work. As for others , I'm sure they also have there reasons :)

Indeed there were, one even carried out a practice Pan with a simulated engine fire. I would have made a post from the viewing area, but my phone is a cheap one from Tesco, so no 3G! :lol:

It was G-FRAI and G-FRAD if anyone wants a tie up by the way :)

sory about that malf i posted then had to shoot to work but i have to admit i did see them both getting around but didnt think they were gonna pop in :Oops:
for info iv set up my base scanner to my pc and its recording all info around CU and other things like RFA argus and many more so if owt happens i can go back and do research if needed still testing but i figured this may help us if were not about and missed call-sign's or emergency landings etc... set from yesterday morning.

Having worked on the milk round got the heads up direct. The one that always amazed me was for a squadron of Thunderchiefs returning to the States with tanker support. The Culdrose ones were virtually always spot on too.

That's interesting. So did I (as I think we all did at some point?!.) for about a year. Think we all have Chris to blame for the hobby we're all in to! ! :whistle:

There you are, Graham. In a nutshell you've answered your own question. Largely because (most of us) are busy people, without internet for a good part of the day, it's impossible to provide a head-up, especially at short notice.

Graham... It's simple.. Unfortunately it's the case of the very reliable contacts that we all use to rely on for aircraft movements both at Culdrose and the local area, are sadly no longer around. That and the fact that as already stated more than once, there simply isn't the movements like we use to have.!!!
No one's with holding information from you or anybody else. And maybe if they are?? Then that might be because it's not for the general public to know about.. certainly not to be broadcasted on a public forum! ! :halo:

I too, along with my brother "Redhound", graduated from the Central Dairy School of Aircraft Recognition! For me, the best early morning tip-off from Chris (& we we weren't on his round!) was circa 1974 following the Merc Enterprise rescue. The note simply said, "US Army CH54 D site leaving this morning" so there was a quick trip out to see it before school, This was used to lift one of the Sea Kings involved in the rescue that had forced -landed in a ploughed field due, as I understand, to salt-logged engines. This has proved to be my one and only CH54/S64.

And the funny thing is.. I was only looking at a photo today of said airlift! ;)
