Monday departure schedule?

Postby GlynH on Fri 14 Jul 2017, 10:24 am

Hi there,

Just wondering if anyone had a departure schedule for Monday please or are they only available from RIAT on the day?

Thanks & kind regards,

Ah typical...the Bone being one of the aircraft I wanted to see

Thanks for the reply Aardvark.. Any connection between your username and General Dynamics F-111? :).

So U2, F-22, B-52, Typhoon, Thunderbirds & Red Arrows depart on Monday then?

So it's not all bad!

Thanks & kind regards,

U-2s, F-22s, B-52, B-1 and Thunderbirds - basically all the USAF CONUS stuff - is highly unlikely to go on Monday.

Speaking to the pilots/ground crew on Friday....U2 is due some major maintenance and as it's been sat on the ground for a few days he doesn't expect to be leaving Monday at all.....B-52 is currently not working (was speaking to maintenance who were flown in Thursday) but even then they said Tuesday (if its fixed) and the B1 ground crew said definitely not Monday and likely to be Tuesday

RE the remaining airshow stuff -

Is there anywhere / P&V facilities etc beyond Monday to watch the departures?

Was seriously considering travelling down as I'm now on a few days off, but don't want to make the journey if it's not going to be worth it. Intended to be there Monday AM, but with the USAF stuff not leaving right away, really don't know what to do.... :confused:

It usually kicks off about 09:00 - I'd get there a bit earlier than that though.

It looks like the wind is switching direction tomorrow, so whereas I'd normally go to p&v West, if they switch runways I'll go down the other end.

According to RIAT ATC, "Prob40 QFU 27 tomorrow"

I think that means 30%+ but less than 50% chance of 27 being used tomorrow.

Was a really good day in P&V West today - aside from it being absolutely rammed. Puma/Hawk went tech, and sadly (as predicted) the B-52 and B-1B didn't leave today; other than that, an interesting assortment of 27 and 09 departures kept you on your toes. Only complaint would be that some things still insist on having a race to the stars, denying those of us in P&V West a decent shot...

I think there should be a stepladder enclosure in P&V West, it's inconsiderate in the least. Some guys were up higher than I go to clean the guttering!
