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.

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.

Regards,

Tim.
Obviously missing something....

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.
