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.

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.

Both B-2s have now returned.

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

: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?

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.
