Rather buggers up the activities of CGS and 644 VGS.

Maybe 644 could put up a 9-ship? Smoke could be an issue, mind.

Great!

Relaxing in a Spa whilst watching aerobatics - where else could you do that? What a great feature and selling point
Their "Sister" Spa is close to Tatenhill and they don't get anything near as exciting................

Jets over Syerston; the first time since...? Where I did my JP training, a LONG time ago. "Wings" in '66.

Works for me!
See my location...
Syerston’s 4 miles away as the Hawk flies , tho’ us on the ground have to cross the Trent so it’s a slight road diversion over Gunthorpe bridge.
Can anyone point me at a schedule so I can go & watch?

With the new A46 now complete, it won't take spotters long to start parking on the old road, the Fosse Way, right next to the aerodrome.

I would imagine that the RAFAT would need to bear in mind the need to avoid distracting traffic on the A46 and to operate predominantly to the north of RW24?

From 9 January 2023 to 7 April 2023, the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team (RAFAT) synchro pair will conduct training in the vicinity of RAF Syerston.
The required TDA will be notified for activation by NOTAM no less than 72 hours prior to the planned flights. Activation of the TDA could take place Mon-Fri at the following slot times: 0830-0915, 1200-1245, 1450-1530, with actual dates and times of activation promulgated by NOTAM.

I’ll be driving past Syerston twice today , but I haven’t had a peer at the runways for a while.
Are the rather ‘used’ Jaguars still there?
I tried to get a closer look at them last visit , they were too far away from the nearest place I could see through the fence.

Only 2 Hawks at a time; obviously saving airframe hours.
If they just needed a 'line feature' to practice with the singletons, why not use the Bedford Levels'; the supersonic corridor hasn't been used since Bedford closed. (Unless of course, someone knows different)

Never mind the ground noise issues - a restricted area around Syerston will completely plug what is already a bottleneck between EMAís airspace and Tollerton to the west and Langar and Saltby further east. Itís also a fairly busy area just to the north for GH training flights.

All I can see on GE, Zoom or Bing are a couple of Tonkas, one short nose one long nose, parked just south west of the old control tower.

Nah. CAS has promised they'll concentrate on flying from now on.

Was that jets or just constant thrust variable noise aircraft?

OK, the Mickey Mouse aircraft, but at least we were "ab initio" Mickey Mouse jockeys. None of this "start with props" stuff.

I note with interest that one of the GE pictures in the middle of the airfield is a spectacular picture of the Reds!

Why are the two Tonkas parked at Syerston?

Ö.no, unlike the old gnat days they donít fly low enough to induce such bodily functions!

Ah, yes, first solo on a week-long ATC Gliding course at ACCGS in 1978. 3 minutes.
27 duals with zero flying experience (except a bit of Chipmunk), then 3 solos. Lovely.

Donít they do Engineering officer training there as they did with the Jags?
