Preserved Lynx

Drove through today and noticed a Lynx preserved close to the main gate, appeared to be blue.

Anybody happen to know which one?

Re: Sunday 17th March

Understand there's been a ground incident involving a KC-135 this afternoon.

Believe the aircraft has rolled forward into some air stairs.

Well, there's six on the ground at the moment, with rumours circulating another two are due.

As to how long.. that's anybody's guess.

Old picture. I've seen the pictures in question and they were taken in the late 90s/early noughties.

Bruggen closed in 2002.

Re: HC.3A vs HC.3?

HC.3A was the designation given to six AW.101s acquired from Denmark in 2006, I believe.

HC.3 was the standard designation given to the original 22 aircraft ordered for the RAF.
