There is another German deployment in September to Coningsby. Should be TLG51 Tornados from Schleswig and TLG73 Typhoons from Laage.

Thanks to the Coningsby spotters group. German EF2000s should be arriving Friday at Coningsby, also John from the Wave has said some Italian EF2000s due at Waddington for the exercise on the WAVE Facebook page

I'm a tad confused. Any guesses as to whether this means that the German Typhoons and/or Tornados will work out of Waddington instead of Coningsby now? Or have the German AF delivered the Italian AF's support kit for their EF2000s? Or is it just wait and see as nobody has the foggiest? And Schleswig-Jagel is the Tornado training base now isn't it?

Looks like the German EF2000 will go to Coningsby, Italian EF2000 to Waddington.

Not sure about the Tornados, looks likely Waddington with the support going there? I believe TLG51 stood two new squadrons TLG51(4) preform aircrew training now they have withdrawn from Holloman. TLG51(3) is meant to be some form of UAV squadron operating the IAI Heron. TLG51(1) &(2) are frontline squadron operating the IDS & ECR

Don't forget that the NOTAM times are GMT, so add an hour for BST.
In other words...
SCHEDULE: 04 06 1000-1300, 07 1300-1430, 10 12 14 17 19 21 1000-1300[/quote]
