Do they switch the transponders off sometimes? It's currently at 10.000ft. Sorry I'm entirely new to this ADS-B thing! :-)
Yes receivers switch off their transponders when engaging with the tanker. Good examples can be seen on the east coast of the UK, like USAF E-3s on transit (when they are not having an issue and need to divert to Mildenhall which is more common).

On ADS-B the Cobham Falcon shows as G-FRAU, while eyeball Mk.1 shows G-FRAL. Anyone? Did they swap transponders? Unauthorised paintjob or the game "confuse the spotters"?

G-FRAL only flew yesterday for FF17 because G-FRAU had some issues. This morning G-FRAU took over the job again and G-FRAL went home just before recovery of this mornings FF-wave

I assume no take-offs before 09:00 local, resulting in landings taking place before 11:30, with the afternoon wave taking-off around 13:30~14:00?

MTIA,

Recovery takes a bit longer than that, especially if they do IFR-approaches; on wednesday morning it took at least an hour (11.00-12.00) to recover 46 aircraft. Afternoon wave take-offs were spread between 13.30 and 14.30. Mission times also depend on whether (and how many) tankers are up.

Nope,

On the 7th only a morning wave will be flown.
This may not include all participants, as some might leave early ...
In the late morning / afternoon, all participating units ( US might be excluded ) will leave the base and some transport might come in.

To add, some might also go directly home while airborne at the end of morning wave.

Het lijkt erop dat de bomen bij het F-15 platform vervangen worden door een aarde wal/dijk. Slechte ontwikkeling! Iemand hier meer info over?

Misschien omdat een JSF toch lawaai maakt?
Beetje vooruit werken?

Daar wordt onder andere aan een flightsimulator gebouw gewerkt en er moet een soort runup komen met een aarden wal eromheen, weet niet of die laatste ook dicht bij het platform komt
