RAF A400's

Post by watchman » Sun Sep 02, 2018 10:56 pm

As none of these aircraft have flown in the past week are they grounded. If so why?

Are you referring to just the A400 or the c130 and the kc2 as well ?

Considering A400Ms are mentioned in the title, I'd have thought that was fairly self explanatory.

Sorry, my misunderstanding. For some strange reason i though that the OP was referring to the raf 100 aircraft :Oops: :Oops:

Saw a picture take at Brize recently showing 9 A400M parked up in a line , quite unusual too see that many?

16:30 both Comet 451 and Comet 468 flying. But it does seem a while since I noticed one up, they are usually so ubiquitous.

I dont know which one it was, but whilst I was waiting for the An-225 to take off on the 30th, I'm pretty certain an A400 took off albeit in the other direction on the runway.

yes the fleet was grounded again due to another technical fault that had to be checked out, thats why flying has been sparse.

We have had 3 different airframes over Yeovilton today, in fact ZM413 has just gone over on its way back to Brize from circuit bashing at Newquay

Longshot... I stopped by briefly while in the area today, and from by the crash gate at Black Bourton read off A400 ZM406, and another close to it that looked like ZM412 - can anyone confirm that 412 was there please? Steve
