Re: Another Robbery at BHX

Don't think they're being reported tbh or the crimes are being tagged to the residents post code when they report it once they're back home. Part of the park is inside Marston Green with the bridge that particularly is the hot spot for trouble being the boundary. I found one of the bike thefts atta...

As a local to this park, not a week goes by without some form of robbery occurring by a gang on bikes - either push or scooter... usually involving a knife so this guy was lucky.

UR-CCP is currently passing Madrid (5-10pm) heading up to East Midlands on the usual CVK7002 flight. Should be crossing south coast sometime after 7 this evening.

Re: Cavok Air AN-12 over Southampton

Pretty sure it's being used for the Ebola aid run between West Africa and EMA. There's a photo at EMA http://www.flickr.com/photos/123753579@N08/15906830735. On days it flies it usually arrives EMA 8 to 8-30pm and departs about the same time the next day.

It's UR-CCP - the second oldest AN-12 still flying! Check out Flightradar24 playback, it goes from somewhere south of Spain to East Midlands, then back the following day. Seems to have been doing this for weeks now.
