Two B52's just gone overhead Chippenham (Wiltshire). Wonderful sight as they were quite low and very close together.

Was the regular Embassy flight C-17 in and out by mid morning. No Buff action today - not listed on the exercise website.

NOTAM for today's just been posted ( times BST ) :
B) FROM: 18/09/12 08:00
C) TO: 18/09/12 13:00
E) FAIRFORD MIL ATZ ACTIVE. AD AND RWY 09/27 OPEN.


Unless it's going to be a two-parter, too short a timeframe for a B-52 exercise-related flight.

( Any U-2 change-overs due? )

Considering that yesterday's Chaos 43 sortie doesn't appear to have been part of Ample Strike, their only participation so far seems to have been last Friday - I wonder what the problem is...? :dunno:
