Hi there, long time lurker here.
All this talk of things happening in my neck of the woods has piqued my interest - even though it's all been very interesting!
I'm not sure about Lossiemouth, just because it is right in the middle of, well, Lossiemouth and has a golf course at the bottom of the runway - so
too many unauthorised eyes to look in. But it does, as you say, have active fast jets and many hangers, so could be a possibility.
My thoughts would be Kinloss or Leuchars. Both are now run by the Army but still have aircraft presence and all housing nearby is military owned.
Kinloss has very few spots to look at the the runway and empty hangers (no Nimrod now
) and has aircraft bays in the forest. Leuchars, although
opposite St Andrews, much of it is obscured by trees and large hangers etc. Also, B2s have refueled there before without anyone's knowledge, until one
took off at lunchtime and appeared over the berm between the runway and the road - there was much tea sprayed from the mouths of the plane spotters at
the picnic site nearby.
Perhaps I need to go up to Findhorn for a 'fishing trip'.
Does anyone know if they're still there?
