So what’s at Newquay this week?

Do not know about NQY but a few Ospreys / Chinooks/ around Si Ives area plus loads of plod jet ski's and ribs of all sizes. Rather foggy for a couple of days. Warship in the bay and Hayle Harbour like a water bus depot.

A South African AF B737 and a Korean AF B744 have just arrived at NQY and a German AF and Italian AF A319's arrived earlier today, plus various long range biz jets with who knows who on board. I'm sure that there are more than that. How much space is there parking wise to give everyone room on the aprons at Newquay ?

Two Typhoons and a Voyager tanker orbiting off North Cornwall coast and a police P68 circling Cornwall.

The sentry is on way home, was it fed while up there?

The E-3 Sentry was from the French AF, which whilst nice makes you wonder why the RAF's Sentry(s) couldn't have done the task bearing in mind it is the UK hosting and providing security.

Neither South Africa nor South Korea are in the G7.

Australia, South Africa, South Korea and India are the four guest countries with observer status at this year's G7 summit.

Are their leaders present or just observers. Not heard any mention of them in news reports and no evidence of any of them in the photo ops.
