Thanks too for the info about M4 closures. I had not thought to check that. I imagine there will be widespread traffic chaos this weekend with the M4 and M3 closed!


M3 was closed last weekend. Are you sure it's being closed again this weekend? That would be total insanity.

My mistake, I misread the info on the Traffic England website. The M3 will be closed Eastbound between J4 and J2 but only on weeknights between 2200 and 0600 for the rest of May.

Thanks to Hampshire Aviation for the frequencies. :smile:

Thought I'd book a ticket online but I'm getting a website bandwith exceeded message.

Is the list above deliberately blurred ?

ZF289, ZF240 and VH-SCW also arrived this afternoon.
