GR.4s are in the U.S. The Harriers are still about, but might be down due to the recent Harrier crash in Cyprus.

No probs, Mark. The weather forecast looks pretty bleak though. Early morning sun then overcast for the rest of the day.

Cheers TJ,
Is the forcast of cloud likely to put them off flying do you think?
I dont fancy driving 140 miles for very little!
Thanks for your help

Hi Mark,
The forecast won't stop them flying. Just that it is predicted to be one of those sunless overcast cold days. Miserable for photography.

I like to use the following

http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/ukweather/midlands/

From

http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/

They have a small graphic where you can run 'cloud cover' etc
