Maybe they will be used for the 5 E-7 Wedgetails they have ordered.
Or possible simulators, ZZ398/399 are A400 Simulators
Both ZZ398 and 399 are Army Wildcats

Re: What aircraft would you like to see at RIAT 2019

Just out of interest doesn't an F-15 do pretty much the same kind of display no matter what country it's from? There hasn't been an F-15 display in this country as long as I've been in this hobby and that's a while and I can only recall USAF ones being at UK shows in the odd fly past, no one elses

Re: RAF Mildenhall to close. Lakenheath to get F-35 by 2020

What will become of the 100th ARW? Will they relocate to Fairford or will the USAF refuelling requirement be sourced from e.g. Germany? What springs to mind is the necessity of refuelling fighter deployments to/from Lakenheath and how the KC-135/KC-10 tankers might be sourced. Any ideas or informat...

Re: Damage to fence near CG1

It is being discussed as if it's something new, I have been in this hobby since the late 70s and seriously since the early 80s and it was going on back then too, at both civilian and military airfields. It will always happen I'm afraid because some people are a**eholes. If they are caught doing it a...

Re: Flickr - Changes to Terms of Use

It isn't about storing photos, Flickr is a host site that enables the posting of images on forums such as this. I think this very small quantity limit on a free account will see fewer postings on here and many other sites like it. Anyone using Flickr as a place to store photos without a hard drive o...

RN fleet helicopters don't come under JHC so nothing from JHC is based at Culdrose
