DEATH 11 & 12 up on 252.875 coming through loud & clear...DEATH 11 looking for FL100 ( DEATH 12 looking for FL120 ) so presumably on it's way back to Fairford.

According to the FM website, there's a C-5M due in this afternoon.

Re: Fairford NOTAM

Mon 02 Sep 2019, 1:50 pm

MYTEE 22 up and about somewhere...not sure what, but the background tone on the comms suggests it could be a B-52 ... either that or there's a B-2 up which the FM site hasn't reported, which has a particularly naff radio.

Re: Fairford NOTAM

MYTEE21 & 22. :up:

Looks like the FM website hasn't caught up yet.
DEATH 12 ( 89-0129 ) had a bit of a whistly box earlier, so possibly them now up again as MYTEE 22 & the comms suite's deteriorated more.

Speaking of the FM website, an interesting 'update'on there :
Security Announcement
Please if you’re visiting Fairford during the deployments,
if you see anything or anyone acting or looking suspicious or out of place
Please call RAF Fairford MOD Police 01285 714477,
Also worth looking out for a particular individual call Lindis Percy
she is a grandmother and a stalwart peace protester known to break into Fairford.

Given the B-2 departures earlier, I've just checked the NOTAMs.
The original one has gone & a new one issued ( times BST ) :
B) FROM: 19/09/02 15:07
C) TO: 19/09/03 00:00 *
E) FAIRFORD MIL ATZ ACTIVE. AD AND RWY 09/27 OPEN.


* : Midnight tonight.

Re: Fairford NOTAM

Mon 02 Sep 2019, 7:35 pm

Both B-2s have now returned.

Should be a second C-5 in but, still on the ground at Dublin.

Re: Fairford NOTAM

Mon 02 Sep 2019, 7:59 pm

:up:
Take it they came back from the North / East, as nowt heard from my location?
As for the second C-5, presume that's why the callsign & T/No of the one which did arrive differs from the one they originally listed as being due in?

Re: Fairford NOTAM

Mon 02 Sep 2019, 8:08 pm

Were up over Scotland for most of the afternoon.

And yes, that'll be why. Not sure when it's due though. :smile:

Re: Fairford NOTAM

Well, I was right about the C-17
But according to the FM website, all 3 B-2s departed at around 22:45hrs
Showing as being due back today ( no times listed ) and they also have a B-52 due in at around 10:17hrs

No NOTAM up yet.
