Hi im new to this forum and i live 5 mins form RAF Cottesmore. I like seeing the Harriers daily but really i like to see the odd visitor appear as its quite rear now since the Tornados left in 1999. Anyway hopefuly this new Topic will keep you all informed on all the goings on at RAF Cottesmore.

So fare we have had the Return of the Harriers on the 1/7/09 so flying acivity at Cottesmore has been high.

Today saw the King Air and Tucano (6/7/09).

But the big event at Cottesmore this year is on 24th July where the 40th anniversary of the Harrier celebrations take place aswell as there annual families day. Appearing at this years display is:
Formation of 4 squadrons of harriers for 40th anniversary and special displays
Hawk T1
Harrier x4
Blades
Typhoon
BBMF
??RNHF??
Jet Provost T3

King Air

Think this has been cleared up in another thread. They were nothing to do with QRA this deployment, and they weren't armed. They were temporarily detached as Coningsby had a no flying day on Wednesday 15th. They were 4x29 sqn jets (owned or 'loaned') so presumably there was a need for them to continue/complete some particular aspect of their training by a deadline. Have they rtb yet?
