Thanks in advance,

At least a BUFF and Bone are scheduled to fly into Cosford and Sola (a BUFF for Norway), so at least one of each of those will be up tomorrow.

Reads like this is RIAT related?


Thanks for your response, but I won't make it tomorrow, I'm coming from the Netherlands. :grin:
But does anyone know if the bombers will fly also the following weekends?

Could have been Buff01(b52) or Bone01(b1) which were reported over Peterborough at 0730 after using the Daventry corridor heading ENE. Buff02 was reported over you at 0908. If you want to track the exercise departures (which are early and daily except for tomorrow) you need to use FC. This site does not get the details posted so misses most of the flying activity.

Although posts on Milscanners say that posts on FC claim they were asking for a Mildenhall HF freq. earlier.

They did ask Swanwick for a HF freq for Mildenhall, I doubt they would have had Mildenhall frequencies pre programmed other than boom. They also asked Swanwick where their tanker was. Which didn't even get airborne

May be mistaken, think I just caught them calling on VHF.....missed the frequency, though.

Anyone know of any movements this morning yet, please? Seems very strange that nothing has happened with such an early NOTAM posted. Thanks in advance.
