Mildenhall (EGUN/MHZ) - 2007

Post by Arjan »

Hi all,

Somehow I have been able to avoid Mildenhall for a long time now but the blood got running again lately and I want to visit the Hall together with Polleke somewhere in april.
Is there someone who can shed light upon the common flight schedules there. When is it the best time visit concerning the incoming transport or is this random and how does the local tankers and specials ops fly these days!

Many thanks in advance and best regards,

Arjan

Ask it at the local spotter they will maybe know the flight info and meanwhile when there are a few quiet ours over there, you have to drive to lakenheath because most of the times they fly all over the day :!:
