Fancy something different? Fancy practice Close quarters flying?

At 2100z I will be staging out of RAF Brize Norton (EGVN) and going on to refuelling station between EGHH (Bournemouth) and EGKL (Deanland) at FL140 @ 260 kts. in the A330 MRTT , RAF Voyager. (Yes ok I will be using a A330 in generic livery!) My Call Sign will be “XOM 4077”

If you want to practice your skills as a fighter jock, come and practice being refuelled from me, I will be on station from approx. 2115z until 2145z, flying a racetrack between EGHH and EGKL.

PROCEDURES

1 If waiting to refuel then wait in lose echelon to Port (Left) at about 500ft higher then next aircraft in line, when cleared to refuel then move down a place in the queue until you are No1.
2 No1 aircraft to join when XOM14 is free, do not join on a turn.
3 Refuelling Operation takes 60s, be directly astern of my aircraft
4 Once refuelled break off by slowing down to 250kts, drop by 500ft and then break away to Starboard (Right), feel free to re-join the queue on the Port Side for a second attempt if you have time!

Be taking off shortly, will patrol up and down the patrol line, waiting for any fighters that need some juice!

Thanks to all those who attended, hope you enjoyed a slightly different type of event!!
