Aircraft from 3 Squadron returned to CBY this evening. I believe 7 or 8 aircraft were due back, I caught BF, QO-H and QO-L arriving back at 1710. Mediocre pics to follow. There was no sign of the remainder when I left at 1800

Think that should be DF and not BF. The other remaining jets to return should be
Q-OA, QO-G, DXI and DG I think

Exercise Magic Carpet was it? Can't add any details I'm afraid - only the name!

Magic Carpet is a regular exercise that the RAF takes part in, it gives the participating Sqn the opportunity to practice heavy weapon bombing (noticed the returning jets had pylons fitted) and exercise with the RAFO. I was lucky enough to go in 1994, we deployed to Thumrait and I presume thats where 3 Sqn went.
