The second visit to Coningsby this year to catch the Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) Typhoons in action. It was a foggy October morning and upon arriving I found the jets had already departed. Sometime later - after the fog had cleared - they returned with a USAF Learjet (C-21) in the overhead. It had been a practise scramble and the C-21 was acting as a target. The load of live AMRAAM and ASRAAM rounds can be seen under the 3 Squadron jet as it recovers on 07 at Coningsby.
