U2?
« on: July 22, 2009, 07:15:24 AM »
Hi I have AE0953 on the box it shows as Lockheed U2S 80-1070 ht 60000 sqwk 4610. A nice capture if this is what it really is.

I had him on the box when he departed Beale yesterday.

I think the callsign is DRAGON 51.

Also heard DRAGON 53 who might have headed over there too. He didn't show up on the box though.

Three inbound U-2s reported on another list, maybe split between Fairford and Lakenheath ?

Look at the squawk. I have him on PlanePlotter descending thro' 2800' tracking 182º just north of Fairford. Aircraft for Lakenheath/Mildenhall use an 04** squawk. All I hear on Lakenheath is QUID76.

He's landed at Fairford. Dragon 53 and 55 are also due at 10:00 and 10:30, should be 80-1089/90 (thanks to Glenn Herriot, Reach Hunters Int for the info).
