VC10 & Tornado Flypasts Fri 20th Sept

Post by Thumper »

Information taken from UKAR forum so presume it's OK to post as NOTAM's will be issued soon. I'm gutted not to see Yeovilton on the list :(

Sadly neither aircraft is scheduled near southern bases.

Pity St.Athan isn't being visited either :-({{|=
That's possibly the closest I could do on Friday.

Yep, Brunty was the last time for me especially as the Photocall was flooded :(

I can't believe for 1 second that St. Athan will be left out of it. That was the home of depth maintenance on the type for 17 years. Have to have a chat with ops :x
Never had a GE's wallet. It was always empty when I got back but I always had a smile on my face :-)

VC10 & Tornado Flypasts Fri 20th Sept

Post by Jelle Hieminga »

Summing up from the UKAR posts:
RAF Lossiemouth sometime between 12.50 & 13.10 (VC10 and Tornado)
RAF Leuchars sometime between 12.25 & 13.10 (VC10 and Typhoon)
RAF Coningsby sometime between 13.50 & 14.20 (VC10 and Tornado)
The above are all LOCAL TIMES

The NOTAMS say:
Newcastle , 11:05-11:35 & 12:20-12:50 (VC10)
Warton : 11:25--11:55 (VC10)
Prestwick , 12:10-12:45 (VC10)
Coningsby : 11:50--12:25 & 12:50--13:20
Marham : 12:05--12:40 & 13:05--13:40 (VC10 and Tornado)
Birmingham : 12:30--13:05 & 13:40--14:05 (VC10)
These are UTC times, so add one hour for local time.
There are a few slightly conflicting times in there but I've just copied them so I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the data. The NOTAMs may also have changed, I didn't check this.
Feel free to take lots of photos and post them here! :mrgreen:

I'm going to be at Newcastle - although I'm not sure what the NCL connection is, I'm more than happy about it. Particularly as I definitely can't make Brunty next week.

... and don't add TWO hours for local times as you will be ONE hour late!!!!!! UK local is UTC + 1 hour!

Might be out of the sim in time to see them come back to Brize... hope so as I am away all ned week so will miss the delivery flight!

Where's that smiley that bangs its head against a wall.... Sorry guys, UTC + 1 is of course correct. I was confusing things with cloggy-land over here.

I shot over to Coningsby from Peterborough at lunchtime (all done in an hour and back at my desk...honest Guv!)

A really good single flyby by an immaculate Vicky 10 which arrived in a 3 ship with two Typhoons which broke away approaching the threshold leaving the prettier jet to take centre stage which was followed by a spirited display by one the Typhoons.

Best lunch hour I've had in a while but such a shame to see the end of the VC10 era :-(

I'll put up some pics later today.
