Was wondering what DRAGON 09 was up to yesterday because I heard it a few times over the course of a couple of hours....according to a post on Milscanners, it paid a visit to Mildenhall before returning to Fairford

B-52's been having a change of scenery today....
Currently bombing Swansea....well, Pembrey range, anyway :lol:
Working 241.55
Confusingly, ADS-B Exchange shows it out over the Bristol Channel between Swansea and Pembroke, but Freedar is showing it over the Frome-Salisbury Plain area :dizzy:

B-52's now RTB Fairford.....only waypoint I caught was KESUP, which is Bristol Channel between Porthcawl and Minehead

Edited to add.....
Bloody Yanks! Instead of taking the most direct routing ( which would have taken them over my location ) they're routing via Exmoor instead :sad: :tongue2:

I managed to see it land back at FFD. Was worth the early start this morning..
