What they could have saved on paint colours?

Post by Unknown74 » Tue Feb 20, 2018 10:30 pm

Just had a thought recently after a discussion with a spotter friend, we both thought that if Leuchars had remained as a Typhoon Base then No.2 Sqdn would have fitted in nicely in No.43 Sqdn's old HAS Area as they are exactly the same colours I know there are some differences with both Squadrons emblems etc but the colours are the same Black and White.

And the winner of the most pointless clutching at straws thread of the year and it's not even March, goes to........




Maybe the P-8's should be based at RAF Binbrook, because the Lightnings used to be Grey as well.

Were 43's old internal door handles not removed as part of a cost cutting exercise ?
I don't think they were black and white ?

renaming Lossiemouth Leuchars would be far easier, after all they both start with L and both have e, h, s and u. Just think of all that savings :thumbs:
