    That is good to read on the Nicola Faith. It remains a mystery as to what happened and this could help the families come to terms with their loss. I walk past the quay the ship sailed from everyday, all the fishing nets, ropes, etc are still exactly as they were when it left on that faithful day.

    2030ish (maybe, with a following wind etc etc).

    They aren’t the only ones in that particular game, though:

    Spotted a couple of Apaches over Elephant and Castle today, quite fun to see. Also, is that a registration/callsign of Demon1? That would be pretty badassPXL_20210527_140258320.jpgScreenshot_20210527-150320.jpg

    Yep Demon 1 is the call sign.

    The US army used to use the call sign Ugly for AH.
    Crews had a cool patch that proclaimed ‘go ugly early’

    Going 'ugly early' on a night out is how a few guys I know met their wives.

    I get the feeling that the callsign generally reflects the role they are performing, eg today a couple of the Hawks out of Leeming were CUTHRT12 and CUTHTE11 while another was, a more usual, PIRATE13. I read the former as 'Cutthroat' and they were doing something out over the North Sea...probably harassing a ship or ships as part of an exercise. I have no idea what DEMON1 might have been up to.

    We the U.K. used Ugly call signs in Afghan depending on which of the squadrons were deployed

    Two different UAVs over the Dover Strait today: https://globe.adsbexchange.com/?icao=425178,47c88b.

    The one on the French side is registered in Norway.

    Dover Strait at the moment: https://globe.adsbexchange.com/?icao...,4b1f2d,44b5ad

    Three drones, of different mission types IMO, and a couple of survey planes (it must be the clear skies).

    Crappy picture but Marine 1 has just flown over my garden heading in to central London

    As the G7 has just broken up, Air Force 2 is currently showing on Flightradar24 mid Atlantic having left the U.K. A C-17 globe master has recently left Prestwick, presumably with Marine 1 in its belly.

    Air Force left Cornwall a few hours ago, but doesn’t show up, which figures as I’m sure they don’t want anyone tracking the POTUS.

    I managed to catch AF1 on ADS-B Exchange, it took a slightly different route to AF2 going along the SW coast and only went inland after it reached the Isle of Wight. Then landed at Heathrow. Later took off for Brussels.

    The next move should be to Geneva tomorrow afternoon / evening.

    A BBMF Hurricane and Spitfire are off somewhere: https://globe.adsbexchange.com/?icao=43c393,43c391


    I cannot find a significant event for 23 June but looking for one turned up the tale of Armin Faber.

    Thanks for the Faber link. Jeffrey Quill covers the aborted raid to capture an FW190 in his Spitfire: A Test Pilot's Story. But I hadn't seen the full Faber story before.

    A pair of Eurofighters seem to be heading to the Dover Strait at low level: https://globe.adsbexchange.com/?icao=43c793,43c79d

    Pretty sure it has nothing to do with immigrants crossing from France.
