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 ) :

C) TO: 19/08/27 15:00

Yep.
FM website had yesterday's arrival as 80-1070 & the one earlier today as 80-1080.....they've now corrected that to 1070
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?

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

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:
