Reds and Google Earth

Can anyone else find the Reds on Google Earth.

No1 shot - Blackpool Airport parked up on a runway
No 2 shot - Biggin Hill on the runway

Anymore Google spotters out there ?

Couple at Scampton, unsurprisingly. Well spotted though!

Not all of them are on the runway at Biggin Hill. A game of spot the 'Red' to be played!

Last year they displayed a team of seven. Plus Red 10 and Winco equals nine.

Got me looking and wondering if there is one in the air. Couldn't find one, so I had a look at LHR to see if there are any in the air around there.
Have a look on Google Earth 51'28'34.93N ,0'31'10.87W. Qatar Airways Airbus

One of the Reds is definitely still in the air at Biggin Hill. Must have gone around and is positioning downwind. You just need to look harder!

Thanks Rab-k...I couldn't get the Alpha Jet out of my mind for some reason, and I generally drive past it too fast. At least it was Red though...
