Heh, just on the off chance I turned on the scanner in my flat in Cardiff and straight away heard MYTEE11 working Swanwick Mil 278.6.

Got my RTL1090 decoder running & they aren't showing on that - and it's currently showing other stuff between mid Wales & Exeter - unless it's one of the flights only showing the hex code.

Hmm...seem to be having problems with getting in to Fairford, discussing possible divert to Mildenhall.

Altitudes currently between 10,000-12,000ft.

Unlikely to be Mode-S, don't think the B-1 fleet is being upgraded as yet.

Descending to block 4,000-6,000ft & switching positions...11 currently leading, switching so that 13's in first.

Pretty sure I've picked them up on there before, along with the B-52s, might be mistaken, though.

All down and safe at FFD, according to FC, which is according to PCB.

Serials reported as 86-0098, 86-0101, 86-0119. All new ones for me, at least! :up:

I just look on the 'Fairford Movements' website ( https://ffdmovements.blogspot.com/ ) 'cos it's easier. :biggrin:

Post on Milscanners newsgroup says there were claims they'd discussed diverting to Boscombe Down.....At no time did I hear anywhere other than Mildenhall mentioned, so I think someone misheard or misunderstood.

I was surprised to hear the weather at 'Breeze Noughtun' was no better than Fairford for landings! :whistle: :lol:

Unusual, that.

By "other forums" I presume you mean FC, as there's nowt on the the likes of PPRuNe & Flypast that I can see & nothing recent appears to come up if you google 'B-1s grounded' ?
