Currently picking up CONVOY 3921 on 132.3 just been calling for a left turn heading 360.

No location ( can't find it on any of the tracking sites ) so don't know if it's inbound Fairford or not.

Edited to add...
May be 3521 not 3921 ( reception's not too good from my location )

I predict the B-52s will start arriving either tomorrow or Friday.
Why?
Because I start back to work tomorrow night after 17 days holiday ( so yes, the crap weather of the last few weeks is my fault ).....and sod's law says that in keeping with previous deployments I'll be working :lol:

Hmmm.......
May be something, may be nothing....
ADS-B Exchange currently has at least 3 B-52s up to the North of Nashville, showing as heading roughly NE.
Granted there have been a couple up over the last few days, but those were much further West.

At least 3 KC-135s ( SPUR callsigns ) now up off the coast of Boston ( Mass. , not UK )
Related to the B-52s or not? ( Wouldn't have thought they'd need to AAR if they're just transiting to the UK )

B-52s no longer showing on ADS-B Exch. after coasting out near Boston.
Four 'SPUR's currently over Nova Scotia, same altitude block as the B-52s were at.

Edited @ 13:12hrs to say....
Two B-52s now showing again -- with the 4 'SPUR's and still over Nova Scotia ( South of Halifax )

And again at 13:30hrs to add...
Back on the move again -- the KC-135s are RTB, the B-52s are coasting out towards Newfoundland

No idea how far out they are ( not heard any comms and they're not showing on ADS-B Exch.) but I think 'GOLD 83' and 'REACH 417' coasted-out about the same time as the B-52s -- '83 has just entered Scotland and '417 is approaching the Irish coast

Both unrelated to the bombers. :up:

GOLD83 is with the MO F-15s, RCH727 was the support.

I know....my point was that they coasted out at around the same time as the B-52s, the GOLD flight ( which unless I'm mistaken is dragging more F-15s across to Lakenheath ) at roughly the same speed and the REACH flight about 80-100Kts faster.
Think there was a RAFAIR flight also at around the same time.

I think Brevets point was regarding their position and timing and that the B-52's might not be far behind. Not that they were in any way related to the B-52 movements.
