Not sure Mike, I did read they had to rub some of the paintwork work down again as the spec for one of the colours was wrong but I have no idea if that was true or just the rumour mill in operation.

Spotted over Newmarket yesterday by a non-enthusiast member of my family, a very large jet, with a high T tail, and about seven very small jets, in formation towards Lakenheath, I think around 1.15p.m.

Ah, Thunderbirds and KC135 over Mildenhall and Lakenheath.

(I know it's not a T-tail but this is a non- enthusiast who was with me when we spotted Concorde on trials before production, then got a flight by our bird XH558 straight over the house in Newmarket, and has often mentioned it)

Lucky .. they  were doing a Low Level Tour around the Country as well but had to RTB owing to Comms Issues .. left a few people upset/wet in the Loop! lol

Two Qatari Globe masters!

Bet the troops who got off in the middle of a wet and windy Cardiff airport were very impressed!
I'll never give up on the dream!
