Great action on the range tonight.  DRAGON35 and DRAGON36, a pair of Swedish Gripens doing strafing runs against enemy firing points, under the control of ground-based forward controllers.  Calling for sparkle, and then the pilot keeps on illuminating the wrong house!!

Quite a spectacle.  Not ModeS fitted unfortunately :(

Hello

Unfortunately so far quiet up here.  We were on holiday down that way last week-wish it was this one and might have seen some action then.  We did see N1757 at Inverness though.
