It does look interesting well spotted.

It appears to be circling?......

It sure is a big bugger. It looks like its doing another circle and a bristow helicopter is heading to it.

Anyone hearing anything on air?

And now there are more USAF, RAF, 3 Bristows and POLICE? Something happening for sure? Or I am just not used to seeing these types on radar as I only ever used FR24?

Have to go to work now sadly so hopefully people will still keep monitoring :thumbup:

Clean08 has been back on the ground for some several minutes.
Sadly I can normally get that area, but my wife is working nights & guess where my main scanner is.
I need to set up some form of remote scanner I can operate from here.

m0lsx would you say the traffic shown above is normal for that area ?

like others i am only used to flightradar and not used to seeing this many mil planes but it does look strange ?

and for anyone else reading who is not aware we are using https://www.adsbexchange.com/ for tracking :wink:

Yes, it's normal. There is lots of traffic in & out of Mildenhall, we also get traffic in & out of RAF Marham, there is a active bombing range on the coast of the wash & also Coningsby in Lincolnshire feeds a lot of traffic out into the Wash area.
Then add in the fact that the old airfield at Sculthorpe, near Fakenham, is used a lot for exercises, as is the Thetford area & it can get busy locally.
