Pirate 02 (100 Sqn Hawk) arrived at Newquay this afternoon. I understand it will be meeting them as a camera ship.

Ah the ultra-grey jets arrive.

In future years we'll tell our grandkids of the exciting days of colourful jets, when Typhoons had pale red-and-blue roundels and flashes...

Are they there yet? :lol:
ADSB-Ex showing the tankers still faffing-around between Portugal & the Azores, but Z401's showing to the South of Ireland.
No comms heard from my location yet.

Edited to add...
Must just be ADSB-Ex throwing a wobbly, because ZZ331 & ZZ335 have just travelled over 1000Km in less than a second! :shock: ( now showing approaching Lands End )

Looks like they've slowed down from 443kts to 235kts so they get the better light for photo's at Marham.
