Poker12 possibly a Tonka as "POKER" is usually a Tonka callsign,sorry I can't be of any further help with the rest of enquiry.But TYPHOO1 looks like it's returning to Coningsby,,we have typhoon icons FR24,yet the Phoonage in the skies is represented by a 737 shape!!!! :shock: Nah,not returning to Coningsby as first thought,looks like it's on a bit of a jolly or FR24 is needing some medication!

Just browsing FR24, noticed there's a PC-12 going up and down near Newcastle, it's flown over from Germany by the looks of it. Thoughts?!

Yes - "Havoc" is an 11 squadron call-sign, not sure about your spelling of Coningsby though. :smile:

UAV's over Belgium? Wish I'd been looking there instead of looking for Joint Warrior stuff and Voyager KC2's!

Tartan 41 and Tartan 43 converging over Shropshire on RTB.

Edit: ...And just eyeballed them both west of Kidderminster. Not quite like the old VC-10 'Combines', but not too far apart - nice! :smile:

The usual Hawk duo playing off the coast of Wales heading back inland! Interestingly though,there's an EC155, callsign "DOP95" playing off the Norfolk coast,seems to have done some rig hopping? Currently RTB. Seems to be a Cessna 404 doing strange patterns between York and Pocklington,anyone here confirm?
