    Well we have't had a naval visit in ages, and now they all come at once.
    Not a visit per se, but a NATO exercise, off the South East coast.

    Currently visible on AIS off Dungarvan (you might even see them from high ground) are HMS Albion, HMS Duncan, HNLMS Rotterdam, HNLMS Johann De Witt. HMS Queen Elizabeth is there too, with USMC F35 embarked. Earlier French Rafales practices anti Ship attacks on Albion.

    I see ALBION , Duncan , and an unnamed Belgian Vessel south of Dungarvan , I also see Celtic Isle ( tug) beside a FV Carrick . There must be a tow under way. The remnants of the NATO Exercise seem to be within our EEZ . I wonder did CASA overfly?

    Celtic Isle is one of the Standby for Kinsale Gas Platform and FS Carrick is part of the Decommissioning of the Kinsale Platforms.
    I just noticed that the AIS plots for those vessels is now 23 hours old, and that was the last signal received before they went dark. Liz is already back in the Solent. Presumably they went bright while passing through busy fishing waters.

    AIS for QE is a false one. She has been alongside Portsmouth since 13th September.
