Sat 5/8 - 19.30 Hawk
Wed 9/8 - 21.00 Typhoon
Fri 11/8 - 21.00 Tucano
Tues 15/8 - 21.00 A400M
Wed 16/8 - 21.00 C130

Fri 25/8 - 21.00 2x Typhoons

Notice that there were 2x Hawk T2 at Lossiemouth for F&F today (5th), presume one, or both of these will be involved with the flypast today (actual + back-up)

That's fantastic Callum1988 exactly right. Interesting to see one of them was one with the serial number digits in place of the codes.

Cheers again.

The whole Typhoon fleet is receiving the last 3 on the tail rather than the standard squadron codes, see Lossie and Coningsby logs :thumb:

Any chance of serial confirmations please? Also none of the 3 looked to me to be in special colours although it may have just been the light I saw them in. It was 9pm after all.

What frequencies are normally in use for these flybys? Is it a scotsmil freq or civil edinburgh regional?

Always heard on Edinburgh Approach on 121.2 but on the odd occasion it could be 128.975(?) - Edinburgh Radar(?).
