The morning flypast is NOTAMed at 4 (plus spare) Typhoons as "Triplex" formation (regular 29 Sqn callsign) not 9. I guess the assumption of 9 is because of the diamond flown over Coningsby last friday which was supposedly unconnected with the Lord Mayor's flypast tomorrow morning. This flypast is not planned to take the overland route Southwold - Ipswich - London although the later 757/Typhoon formation is.

The 757 is NZ7572 and is flying out of Brize Norton, arrived yesterday.

Details for the flypasts are as follows:-

The morning fly-past by 4 (5) Typhoons from 29 Sqn
(TRIPLEX 1, 2, 3, 4 & SPARE) will hold at Southwold and then route down the
coast over the sea until they get to the Thames estuary and then turn west
to London.

The afternoon fly-past by 3 (4) Typhoons from 3 Sqn (KIWI
1, 2, 3 & SPARE) accompanying the RNZAF Boeing 757 (KIWI 4) will hold at
Southwold and then route 'overland' to London. This will be along
the route normally taken by the Queen's Birthday Fly-Pasts i.e. Copdock,
Colchester etc.

When did the 757 arrive? I wish I'd have known earlier in the week  banghead 

Would have been well worth a day off uni to go down to Conningsby and see it. Hope you guys get some good shots tomorrow.



Obviously missing something....

The 757s as both arrived in the uk.

Have been reported on a yahoo military group named Touchdown also on the http://www.ukar.co.uk web site thats full of Military Photogs who rarely post such movements on airnet.
