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

Yep, that matches what the FM site says.

Had one U-2 arrive this morning - after doing several T&Gs apparently - and yesterday's one ( presumably ) has apparently just called for engine start.

Today's NOTAM has been updated ( times BST ) :
B) FROM: 19/08/27 11:00
C) TO: 19/08/27 15:00
E) FAIRFORD MIL ATZ ACTIVE. AD, RWY 09/27 OPEN

Arrived as DRAGON 22, first time up today as DRAGON 02 & most recently as DRAGON 01.
Same as this morning, did a number of circuits before landing again.

With change of NOTAM from 1300 to 1500 today, what flew after 1300 to justify that?

Aside from the U-2 performing several circuits again, absolutely nothing!

All three B-2s are now outside though.

Thanks - would guess they are outside just to be refuelled as exercise doesn't start til Thursday unless test flights are made but so far no NOTAM for tomorrow yet?

Now showing as near Frome at 6000ft.
No comms heard so far.

Edited @ 07:07hrs to add....
Confused now....it's showing as having gone past Fairford & currently approaching Worcester, still at 6000ft :dunno:
And still no comms heard.

@ 07:11hrs...now appears to be orbiting over Tewksbury area ( assuming it's not just ADS-B Exch. throwing a wobbly )

I'm sure they came over here just east of Knighton about 20 minutes ago, lovely view of some cloud though. :sad:

Not heard from my location, but post on Milscanners reports that they're pretty much doing a 'round Britain tour....up the West Coast, around the coast of Scotland then back to Fairford via the East Coast.

A long shot I know but would anyone know what route and time they're likely to take back to Fairford? Also is there any particular reason why they don't show up on ADSB?
Thanks in advance. All info gratefully accepted. :up:
