Today, the 22nd of November, was our last day at Albacete. Not much new to add to the list of participants.
RAF Typhoon ZK430 flew for the first time while Spanish EF.2000’s C16-44/14-44 and C16-72/14-72 took part in the mission.

Visitors due to a visit of the King of Spain to Albacete were Puma HT21A-04/402-23, Cougar HT27-02/402-25 and C.295 T21-03/35-03.

Airbus produced some helicopters:
EC.135 HE-26-35A/01-1202 and EC558 both Armada;
Cougar (HU-21L-65)/ET-665 and Puma (HT21-12)/ET-510.

I wasn't able to tie up all the callsigns with the correct flight (or even hear them properly - e.g. Rebel or Devil??) so most of them I've omitted.

Roma21 reported before taxiing that his wingman had a radio transmission issue and could only receive. They took off as a pair with a small delay nonetheless, then returned again 10 mins later, odd..

Some pilots seem to be aware they have cameras pointed at them and made some nice maneuvers during departure (including a complete roll!), will share some pics once I get home.

NATO E-3 is operating out of Morón.

What sounded like a CN.235 or similar arrived around 7 PM, nothing on ADS-B.

So it was indeed a CN235 I heard arriving last night; T.21-03/35-03 and it participated in the afternoon wave, returning in complete darkness after 6 PM. The AWACS from Morón was not airborne today.

AM "mini-TLP" mission, mostly single-ships:
Typhoon 1x (was still at the gas station charging the car)
40 Rafale M spcl tail
42 Rafale M
ZK375 Shark67
ZJ947 Shark69
ZK431 Shark71
ZK331 Shark72
ZK381 Shark73
C.16-74/14-74 c/n 10202 Chico01
The RAF Typhoons had their transponder on and went all the way south close to the Algerian coast.

QRA:
C.16-48/14-48 Oscar01

Airbus Helicopters outside:
GSPA-01 NH90TTH
HE.26-35A/01-1202
HU.21-12/ET-510
HA.28-10/ET-710 c/n 10011 (so we were correct yesterday Julian, it was a Tiger!)

The only mil rotorcraft not identified was a very dark Super Puma in the hangar. I think the serial started with HD.21-.. Apart from the Armada dinges, they only did some engine test runs (very problematic for the Tiger it seemed..).

TLP mission was from 4-7 PM, with some recoveries after sunset. Mostly the same aircraft and callsigns as yesterday, haven't gone through all of them. Horrible light on the majority, no nice banking on take off and they stayed either too low or were already at 1000ft overhead.. Landing shots were OK for the first few aircraft only, after that the light became too poor, unless you want to cross the centreline and do some atmospheric sunset shots.. Note that there is just enough time to run to the bathroom and race around to ze ozzer zide between last take offs and first recoveries, literally just 15 minutes or so.
