Martin Luther King Day today, so highly unlikely anything will fly.

BARON 21 FLIGHT, pair of B-52s, currently up, working 278.6

Edited to add...coming through loud & clear, so presume they're routing Westwards

BARON 21 is now becoming BARON 22, sounds like a flight-plan cockup ( plane filed for 22 not 21 )
One aircraft will eventually be RTBing Fairford, the other will be landing at LEMO ( Moron AFB )....so my guess of a Westward routing looks to be correct.

Missed the callsign, but just heard something reporting as being inbound direct Fairford.
Presume BARON 21/22 ( or whatever it's calling itself now :lol: )

Think one ( or both ) of the B-52s which departed this morning are on its/their way back....just caught something reporting routing VLN direct Fairford.
Then again, it could be the B-52 which went to Moron AFB yesterday ( which seems more likely )

Edited to add....
Working 278.60
Difficult to hear from my location, but callsign doesn't sound like BARON or even MYTEE ( and ends in what sounded like either '26' or '36' )

HALL(?) 55 was working 278.6, then 135.15, now 128.7

Not sure if inbound Fairford or not.

Edited to add.....
Oops...it's OLIVE 55 ( ruddy Yanks still can't speak English properly )...so being an RC-135 it'll be Mildenhall not Fairford.

Posts on Milscanners have it that today's flight-of-two didn't happen as at least one of them went tech.

Hmmm....
SPAR 26 ( C-37A ) currently in the descent heading SE near Worcester.
Just reported that he copies "Negative ATIS", so looks like it could be inbound Fairford.

Didn't you know?

During US detachments in the UK someone is especially assigned to monitor UKAR to check if someone says their is no NOTAM yet, as that is the go to publish it.
A weather forecast is a forecast and just that

:biggrin:

Think there's at least one B-52 up.....someone's working 278.60, but not using their callsign ( just '31' ) that I've heard.

Edited to add....
Confirmed as BARON 31 FLIGHT (just heard BARON 32 on the same frequency )
Think I heard mention of Start Point.
