That would account for the 6 containers that have left here (Bournemouth) over the last week and a half then I would think.

Assume this has been a profitable contract for Cobham. Get the MOD to pay you a regular income to provide a squadron of helicopters the price of which has no doubt equalled the cost and provided a healthy income. And the end of the contract they get a nice little bonus by selling off the aircraft, which MOD has already paid for. Expect the same is happening with the Cranwell Kingairs ?

I don not suppose anybody at MOD has asked for a single example to be 'donated' to the RAF museum ?

The MoD never owned any of them so they can dispose of them as they wish
