Re: Report of MOD cancelling dissimilar aircraft training project

What company was in contention for this contract, as I haven’t seen anything mentioned before.

Re: Report of MOD cancelling dissimilar aircraft training project

I thought this was going to be one of 9 Sqns new roles along side QRA, so why pay an outside contractor to do the same job over and above?

My thought is you better brush up on your geography as to where Leeming or indeed Wales are both located. :O

Those Gazelles look the ‘mutts’ proverbials, I remember the outcry when they bought the Mi-35’s along with all the other Russian gear.

Great subjects with fantastic lighting conditions, the reflection off the snow certainly lights up the undersides.

Re: Joint warrior

I don't think it's down to runway works alone, but the overall building works going on within the station and another squadron forming in the process, the last thing they need is to host a large scale exercise.

Re: C17s to Fairford

Did you expect anything else. People really need to read before they post, someone even asked mid afternoon how many B-52’s arrived today ... 3, Three, Triple, one more than two and one less than four, yes that’s right THREE

Re: RIP Brexit

Doesn't help when you have a PM who initially wanted to remain, trying to lead a country out of the EU. In all honesty I admire PM May, although she was a remainer she at least has and did listen to the public and followed the Brexit path, not her fault you have other MP's that want to override dem...

Can’t understand why the press conference isn’t until the 19th, when all the aircraft will have arrived! The rumour mill will be exhausted by then! 😁

Re: Press Conference 19th March

Some of you guys need to chill. The a/c if they arrive will be around for 2-3 weeks so plenty of time to catch them. On another note if any B-2's are involved they'll more than likely only crew change at FFD before heading home and if I remember correctly there is B-2 ground support at FFD all the t...
