Hawk 3-ship over Guildford

Anyone know why a Hawk 3-ship was flying around in Vic just north of Guildford at around 1210 on 29 June? Possibly in Farnborough's radar pattern. Good to see, though obviously not low enough! Couldn't see the colour scheme.

I don't own this space under my name. I should have leased it while I still could

First rule of "Pruning". Never have liquid (coffee, beer, wine etc) anywhere near the keyboard. Too many clever comments floating about

When they depart, if the runway is wide enough they ususally go as a vic of 5 followed by a 4, both groups emitting white smoke.
OC Flying Farnborough one day remarked he was waiting for the day one of the leading group abandoned takeoff.
Think about it.
OK suit yourselves; I'll get me coat.
