EGVP, I have a feeling it might be the whole aircraft, as it extends past the tail in the image, if you look near the bottom.
Tail and spine then, like the other specials, which is what I meant in the first place I just wasn't very clear - sorry!

It wouldn't make sense for them to move to RAF Waddinton as you state. :D
Don't forget the electrical nightmare that would be involved with installing American equipment (and lots of it) at Waddington...

Re: Machloop ban

But there are no rules for what you can and cannot photograph and post online, if taken from a public footpath or farmer's field, with permission to access, of British military aircraft flying around Britain.

Very interesting post Al. Thanks.
I'm a little surprised by the birdbath as I keep reading that the P-8s only operate at high altitude. RIP the Nimrod.

Re: Flickr go pro date

There is no alternative for the same price. You either pay Flickr and get the benefits they offer, or you pay another company and get their benefits: Smugmug themselves, who own Flickr, and are more expensive. A web hosting company, where you can set up your own website. Squarespace or 1&1 Ionos (wh...

Fairly sure you can have a full-time job and have a limited company, or indeed be a sole-trader (or for that matter, a joint-owner in a partnership, for which I speak from experience).

Re: MRTT at Manchester Airport

Yeah that tweet is absolute nonsense in every way! "NATO 040" is nonsense, he aircraft is marked as MRTT040 - the 40th MRTT conversion.

MRTT040 is the former VH-EBI, and will go to Australia eventually.

MRTT054 (also present today) departed to Madrid, still in primer, and will be the first for NATO.
