QUID 46 currently routing to ARA11 ( Lands End ) to join with QUID 45 & 3 receivers.
Only heard '46 so far, no idea yet what the receivers are.

I'm listening to a couple of flights en-route to North Wales MTA, callsigns WARMAN & ANIMAL ( not heard those callsigns for a while )

QUIDs have just come up on the same frequency ( 278.6 ) pretty faint from my location, and aren't working either of those.

QUIDs 44-46 now RTB.
Don't know what it was about, but caught the tail-end of comms from QUID 46 about lowering the landing gear & flying slower.


Meanwhile, COMET 456 ( A-400 ) has been running approaches and T&Gs at Swansea Airport....possibly on the ground there at the moment.

Not caught it's location yet ( it keeps briefly popping up on ADSB-Exch. then disappearing again ) but have had HAGEN 41 ( MC-130 ) working Cardiff on and off for the last few hours.
Presume it's playing up around Brecon way.

St Athan collecting Jet Provosts, it seems....G-PROV arrived earlier, to HAS as usual.
It's all a secret plot to stop Chris (CJS) from seeing them! :lol:

Somewhat belated....
L-29 ( G-DLFN ) arrived at St Athan around 12:30hrs
And another one for Chris ( CJS )...to add to St Athan's growing collection of JPs, G-BWEB arrived from France at around 14:00hrs
Both presumably to HAS for servicing
