Flightradar 24

Sorry Mate. I mean his rank insignia.
Strange rank tabs for someone flying RAF aircraft from an RAF station but I suppose they have to find some employment for fishheads ;-)
 
If it was for real you could check it with an app on your phone or watch yourself on flight radar. Just mention that to the examiner I bet they will be impressed with your lateral thinking and pass you.

Honest
Cool. I’ll give it a go.
 
Apparently 617 had a bit of a piss-up to celebrate the Dams raid, put on by Avro. Someone should probably have proof-read the menu :)

“Oi, Adolf, us Brits are King Of The Swampers”
 
Hmm, just had a Eurofighter blasting out of Warton over my house. Very unusual that there is flying on a weekend from there.
It's now headed NW out over the Irish Sea.

Ah, it's a trainer, could be doing a VIP/media flight.

With just a slight climb rate of 10,000ft per minute. Nothing too taxing. :D

Yeah, it was fair climbing when it banked over here. Can't see what happened to it as I had to go into the attic to get the decorations, but I do think it was on a jolly for someone.

Open the airfield, bring in all the staff on a Saturday for a jolly?

Not with covid atm.They do have an employees family day, but that is usually during the summer and it's really, really hard to get an invite if not a BAE employee. I know some quite senior people there and still get f***ed off when I politely ask. They will cave in one day (I hope).
As I said, it is very unusual that they fly at weekends, anf with the trainer vairent, it hs to be a VIP jolly or media thing. Weird timing though.

Can you identify any visiting private jets on the tarmac ?!

Sadly I live under the flightpath about 5 miles from the runway end, so I have no idea what is there today. Also not helped by Blackpool having more than a few private jets coming and going every day as well as BAE having it's own fleet of small (and not so small) passenger jets based at Warton.

A new tracking app has gone live on Android and the Apple thingy. It's called SkyScanWorld. You'll be able to track everything going really but you'll have to pay up to £27 a year if you want it.
