SARTU, now 202 Sqn have been heard flying with 'Mucky 88 and 92' this week. Pedro seems to have disappeared for the moment.

They have been using ZODIAC off and on for a few weeks now Pete, probably tasked by FOST.
It's normally used by the Cobham DA42s as one of their task-specific JW callsigns.
MOTHBALL is a revival of an old 360 Sqn callsign.

Definately one I have not seen before, "PEACH", a E-8 JSTARS callsign, sighted over the Mildenhall area today on 360 Radar/ ADS-B

Just having a quick look and I found "SAME51" which was a callsign for a RAF 135 from Mildenhall, so that's a new callsign for 51 Sqn

Not too sure about this one, Army Air Corps AH-64 Apache callsign PROWLER, very appropriate!

Now they are flying tactical training sorties at low level, 70 Sqn Atlases are using the callsign COMET. ZM411 was flying yesterday and today as COMET 62 and today paid its first visits at low level to the Machynlleth Loop and Ogwen.

I saw Prowler 1+2 on ADS-B last week around the Wattisham area, came up as AH-64
