Having worked on Tornado GR1s, F3s and GR4s for over 14 years it will be sad to see them go, but 40 years is amazing!  I live right next to RAF Brize Norton so I hope to see the flypast on Wednesday 20 Feb.

What squadrons @Gary Burcombe ?
I was on 617 & 14 on GR1 then Leuchars on F3 2nd line before moving to the simulator

nothing near us here on the south coast, by the look of it, so I guess I'll just have to raise a few drams in memory of it's predecessor, remembering all the evenings and nights spent patrolling around, and when raining sheltering under, the VULCAN  :beers: :smiley-laughing:

 :thankyousign:   Crewearpley40 All we need now are the approximate times from the R A F and to hope I知 free to hear and see the fly past ,I was really annoyed that the Vulcan didn稚 fly over Naphill as I致e said , after all Naphill was Bomber Command and also one of Vals late bosses was a Vulcan Pilot .
But I dare say there was a reason for NOT going over .

Timings for the flypasts look to be released on Monday.

This quote from RAF source on various Facebook pages, such as RAF Leeming and the RAF Regiment (among others), gives the latest details available.

Timings just released half an hour ago, as this extract from RAF Marham Facebook page shows:





All timings will be confirmed on each day to account for weather and serviceability issues that may develop.

So @Bob Tidbury  , looks like 13:30 at RAF High Wycombe on Wednesday, coming in from RAF Halton and leaving to go on to RAF Benson.

 Any updates will be posted if I知 available to post them.

Judging by these timings, looks like each location will either get a quick fly through or longer display. Other RAF page sources suggest they will be at various heights during the day transiting between locations, but that some may see them down at 500 feet on route.

Please note: location references in NOTAMs are for Latitude and Longitude. To find an OS map Grid reference if using a paper map, they need to be converted, for instance via an online app.
For example the references of Lat/Long given for Tuesday 徹ffshore Skegness translate to OS Grid Ref  TF 6353 5779.

I値l see what I can find Lawrence. I知 relying an another source to filter the correct NOTAM from this site:

https://notaminfo.com/node/5

It痴 a long list and not in strict date order by any means, and so far no sign of the Thursday flight. I値l monitor the source over the next two days to see if it appears.
