To All registered Spotters.

We need to ask you all to remain patient a little longer.
Unfortunately Navy HQ is only releasing the names that are granted access at a very slow rate, and for the moment only French Nationals have received access.
This does however not mean that you will not receive access, It only means that the French Intelligence Team are doing a very thorough job.

Kind regards
The NTM 2017 spotters day team

Of course I lived in France for a year when I was a student.

Right enough there was that one incident, but... well, that was a long time ago now... it was never actually proven that it even was me in the photos... surely they're not... oh crap.

and the latest update

Dear spotters,

If you receive this email, your access authorization to NAS Landivisiau has not yet been approved. We are conscious that it takes longer than expected and that it impacts negatively your travel plans. We hoped that the process would be faster, and are doing our best to grant access to all the requests.

We sincerely apologize for the troubles this delays can create, and ask you one or two more weeks of patience before we can confirm your inscriptions and give you the payment informations.

Respectfully

Spotter day staff


A bit worrying but ferries, car and accommodation all booked so lets hope we hear positive news

Ditto, all paid for so can now start swapping hotels from reservation to pre-paid to save a bit of money :)

Me too... only vague concern is that we appear to be shedding participants at a rate of knots.

Good to see the Norwegians added, suggests they're trying to organise other Squadrons to replace those that have dropped out. :clap:

Worth noting one of the EC3/30 Rafales has dropped off the list too....

Andy, that's interesting, seems to be a direct contradiction to their facebook post:

Finally Good News!
We have finally received the confirmation from HQ about the spotters registrations.
It looks like all registered spotters have successfully passed the screening procedure.
We have already started to send out confirmation e-mails, that also contain payment instructions.
So keep an eye on your mailbox, also the spam folder ;-)
Best regards,
The NTM Spottersday Team.

Not got my email yet..... :sad:
