The RAAF E-7 will more than likely be “ASY” (Aussie) but it could be “Wedgetail”

With just the slightest bit of finesse, I might have made a little less mess.

Not sure if it has or hasn't but there is a post on fightercontrol and some posts on twitter saying it has cancelled, but they don't if it's just today or cancelled altogether.

RAF C17 always cancels. Very disappointing because of the RAF lineup, will be the only one not there? Gutted about the B52 :sad:

EEeeeeeeek,
If they all have cancelled then that's leaving a fair bit of pan space free now!

RAF C-17 hasn't been officially added to the list as cancelled as far as I know.

So, Herc, Su22, Mig21 (obviously), C-17 and a B52 all cancelled, this is not only leaving a gap or 5, but quite big ones.

Maybe we should start a cancelled thread, so we can keep up with these just in case it starts to get messy?

the fitter is an obvious cancellation off the back of the mig crash.

as for the others, well these are active air forces so this sort of thing is expected

Support only I think... according to the sheet it’s due back out this afternoon. Probably just dropping off supplies and/or support personnel.
