New trio of 52's have arrived in FFD all using the callsign of "MYTEE"
61-0020 LA '20 BS'
60-0021
60-0024

I'm told B2's inbound to Fairford soon

I wonder if these have anything to do with the current Russian military exercise going on around the Belorussian border areas?

The loop might be worth a visit in the coming weeks, for the visitors at the bottom.....

12 x SJ F-15's ETA 1300 Sat ETD 0600 Mon EGUL

6 x SJ F-15s ETA ???? Sun ETD 0600 Tues EGUL

8 x F-35's and F-22's also to EGUL, arrival the 04th ? (Unsure if that is 8 of each or 4 of each?)

Serials to be added when known
