Thank you, massive hedgehog.

Now tell me, are we supposed to be getting the Reds at all this year?

With the recent weather we've been having in Edinburgh, I'd be surprised if anything manages to get through, right enough... :roll:
Posting comments on an aviation-related chatroom, are ya? Looks like it an' all...

I would think you might get the reds on Saturday as they are in Newcastle, N.I. and have in the past done a flypast at Edinburgh on the same day.

NOTAM for the Reds on Saturday is up, and unfortunately, their route is nowhere near Edinburgh.

Looks like Bournemouth (1103) - Aldregrove (1200)
Aldergrove (1432) - Display Newcastle (1445) - Aldergrove (1511)
Aldergrove (1741) - Cardiff (1827)

As always, add 1 hour for BST.

That puts them in Cardiff on Saturday night.

That's a pity. Last year they flew from Aldergrove to Edinburgh then to Liverpool, in 58 minutes. Can't see them doing Aldergrove->Edinburgh->Cardiff in 46 minutes.

ZK337 and ZK372. Got a good view of them from Princes Street Gardens, though they seemed quite high?

Tucanos tonight, though I'm more interested in the A400m next Tuesday.

Off topic/bonus, but An-12 UR-CGV arrived at Edinburgh this afternoon following a go-around. Nice to see the smoke trail following that one around!

Chance of an An-12 for one of the Tattoo flypasts? :yahoo:

Perfect night for the A400M. Undercarriage down too.
