*Passes at certain airports will be dependent on ATC clearances at the time of arrival.

Times have yet to be confirmed and will be published in our newsletter on Friday, but the flights are expected to start after lunch each day. Check these maps nearer the days to see approximate times (from take-off) in the details and we will also advise latest developments over social media in the next 48 hours.

PLEASE NOTE:

** We intend at least two more flights in late October. **
** This weekend will not see XH558’s final landing. **

This was first posted by David on this thread, and Lisa Shepherd in the News site.

The time is around 160 minutes between Staverton and Brize after take-off – thats the KEY.
