Not much to see from my viewing point, other than a single Gripen. Unsure whether the timings circulated were accurate (assume they were close enough) - didn't see any sign of the P-3 or the L159 pair.

Be interesting to see what happens, in terms of rehearsals and arrivals at Cosford, as the forecast looks very poor for tomorrow and some of Saturday - hope the ground will be OK at Cosford, given the rain expected over the next few days.

Aero pair came in to Shawbury first.

No missed approaches etc just straight in,one about about ten minutes after the other.

Casa 295 next in.

Single Gripen came in high over airfield before then landing with little drama.

295 then left a good while later.

Then I left.

I hope you gave everyone a suitably energetic departure to make up for the others...

And do you have a special tail? :oops:

It may do, but there's no guarantee. Previously, the Orion has operated from its home base. No further updates whether it's still due, so your guess is as good as mine.

I'm afraid I don't. Have you tried pest control?

On a serious note, they're Swiss and (should be) arriving tomorrow. :smile:

No that's LPG.
