The Waddo air ambulance is a now bigger machine from the old MD rotor less bird. Could have been that?

Re: New Hunter for HHA.

HHA were contracted by Embraer for maintenance on XHH so they will know her well.

ZM335 departed Waddington this afternoon as CWL 45, assume went to Cranwell?
Under her own power? Hopefully damage fixed.

336 was still present today.

Re: RAF Tornado retirement

I'd like to think they would at least do a fly-over tour of old bases of the "Mighty Fin".

Re: Pigeon chicks rescued from HMS Queen Elizabeth by FAA

Plenty of "vermin" being saved (or allowed to survive) at tax-payers expense with all the "spice heads" plaguing many towns and cities.

The Pigeons are less hassle.

Re: Tempest - Britain's new stealth fighter

We're sending 14 year old Typhoons to RTP to save a few bob.
I'm all for a new British aircraft but where is the magic money tree?

Re: Red Arrows RAF Scampton air base to be sold off

The base is knackered due to years of cuts, neglect and a lack of investment.

Only thing we can hope for is if someone buys it that will preserve the heritage with the intent to continue to use it for aviation.

To just build houses on it would be criminal.

Surprised they can't come up with a lease deal with BAE for T2s. Done plenty of marketing for them after all.

Please can somebody produce a picture of an RAF Tucano 'mixing-it' with a Spitfire Mk19+ to assist those that can't be arsed to read this thread? :roll:
Why specifically a Mk19? It only specifies "a later make" if you read it correctly. :whistle:
