King Air Practice Displays

UPDATE 17/05/16 0827L: I have just noticed the NOTAMS referred to in this article have been deleted, we do not know why or if these effect the King Air Practice Display Programe

We have noticed some possible times to catch a 45(R)Sqn King Air Practice Display at RAF Cranwell now they are practising at lower level. These times are taken from NOTAMS so there may be a Primary & Secondary slot each day with the team favouring the Primary unless weather is against them, in which case they would switch to the Secondary, or they could be looking to display at both times. They may also choose not to go up every day so please take these times as a guide only unless something is said Officially by the Team. Should there be any change or new information released I will update this post so make sure you check back just before you decide to visit.

The NOTAM was active on Thursday 5th May & Friday 6th May and Tweets by the team suggest they were practising early morning as early as Wednesday 4th May

 

A couple of Short Videos have also been shared on their Twitter Account

 

Although they Practice Low you may be able to catch a trace of practices on Flight Tracking Services such as our Endorsed Tracking Service 360Radar. Just look out for a Beech King Air (Type Code: BE20) of Registration ZK450 to ZK460 wearing a Display Squawk of 7004.
