Arrival times at Bruntingthorpe are scheduled to be 0930, 1000, 1300, 1430.
I'm not sure of the departures ex Brize I'm afraid.

A bit late but from the Brize Norton Facebook page:
Heads-up Timmy Tristar lovers!!

The last four Tristar aircraft are expected to depart RAF Brize Norton today, 25th March 2014. Approximate timings for each departure are:

9.00am
9.30am
1.00pm
1.30pm

It is stressed that all departures are weather dependant and subject to change due to operational requirements.

Farewell Timmy

Due to the weather at Brunti, all four Tristars are still at Brize. The crews are there and ready to go, but at the moment it doesn't look good. Very unlikely that all four Tristars will be delivered to Brunti today.

Again from the BZN Facebook Page;

Due to weather constraints, departures have been delayed. Latest information is that the aircraft will depart between 11.00am and 1.30pm.
