Silly question, I suppose, but as it's the RNHF Sea Fury why's it at North Weald?

Surprised they don't do it in-house, or aren't they equipped/qualified to do so?

ASCOT 812 ( C-17 ZZ178 ) been running approches & touch-and-goes at Cardiff on and off for the last few hours, looks to be RTB.
ASCOT 482 ( A-400 ZM416 ) low-levelling Westbound down the Bristol Channel, now over the Devon side near Lundy.

Edited to add...
At least a quad of QUIDs Northbound approaching Devon....mention of routing via Yeovilton & Brize, RTB Mildenhall.
Edited again to add...
Now reporting routing via BZN->MAM ( that's Marham, isn't it ? )

FAF6442 out & about, from comms I've heard it sounds to be around the Yeovil/Yeovilton area.
Live-Mode-S has it as an Alpha Jet, T/No. E-115

Edited to add...
Now hearing FAF6441 as well.
No ID yet, but as a guess it's another Alpha Jet

Edited again to add....
FAF6443 also up now ( Presumably another A-Jet )

Bums !!
That's what happens when you post on a forum within 10 minutes of waking up....and not bother checking before hitting 'send' :facepalm:

No idea why I put '570, given that I meant '740.

Callsign 'VIPER 1' currently inbound Cardiff Airport.
I was worried Tommy would ban me for missing a test-flight by one of the Hunters, but luckily it's turned out to be a boring old Apache ( ZJ222, I think they ID'd as ) :lol:

Don't know why, but the Belgian AF seem to have taken a liking to Cardiff Airport recently.
Today's visitors were a Herky & an Embraer E-145, which have recently departed & are now on their way back to Melsbroek.
