Thanks in advance,

At least a BUFF and Bone are scheduled to fly into Cosford and Sola (a BUFF for Norway), so at least one of each of those will be up tomorrow.

Reads like this is RIAT related?


Thanks for your response, but I won't make it tomorrow, I'm coming from the Netherlands. :grin:
But does anyone know if the bombers will fly also the following weekends?

Was it a B-1 that I heard over Northampton at 07:23 BST today, please?

Re: Fairford NOTAM

Could have been Buff01(B-52) or Bone01(b1) which were reported over Peterborough at 0730 after using the Daventry corridor heading ENE. Buff02 was reported over you at 0908. If you want to track the exercise departures (which are early and daily except for tomorrow) you need to use FC. This site does not get the details posted so misses most of the flying activity.

Thanks but I couldn't find the topic on Fighter Control and the departures blog had nothing since yesterday.

You won't unless you're registered on there.....they keep it hidden away in their 'members only' area.

Re: Fairford NOTAM

Gone 05:30hrs and no NOTAM yet.

Are they just having a lie-in, or is today a down day, I wonder ?

Edited to add...07:30hrs & still nowt.

4th B-1B should be arriving at Fairford shortly, was heading home from Ramstein but has diverted for flight control issue

Although posts on Milscanners say that posts on FC claim they were asking for a Mildenhall HF freq. earlier.

Re: Fairford NOTAM

Mon 12 Jun 2017, 11:48 am

They did ask Swanwick for a HF freq for Mildenhall, I doubt they would have had Mildenhall frequencies pre programmed other than boom. They also asked Swanwick where their tanker was. Which didn't even get airborne

May be mistaken, think I just caught them calling on VHF.....missed the frequency, though.

Anyone know of any movements this morning yet, please? Seems very strange that nothing has happened with such an early NOTAM posted. Thanks in advance.

Re: Fairford NOTAM

Tue 13 Jun 2017, 10:22 am

1x B-1 took-off just after 5am and 1x B-52 just after 7am.

Re: Fairford NOTAM

MYTEE 21 ( B-2 ) somewhere around my area, from the radio transmission strength......it's got a grotty sounding transmitter with lots of background whine.
Routing towards Lands End.

QUID 638 & 639 en-route ro ARA with it somewhere around Berry Head.
