Re: RAF Marham Operating Hours May 2020

The carrier is out for training as part of their CSG 21 workup and a post was put out saying air wings will start training with the ship in a few weeks, could mean 617 might go out for some flying.

Re: A little quiet?

I did read some staff were called up on the military assistance to help the NHS and others so maybe they are grounded as they're not a full staff levels. Plus it's mostly just training so not really necessary at the moment, Reds only flying to keep their hours topped up and Typhoons flying for obvio...

But surely that means converting the Tristars. From hose and drogue to a boom fit
Not necessarily, Omega Air have bought the two RNLAF KC-10s with one delivered and one still in service with the Dutch, which are both equipped with booms.

Good Morning All

How many F-35 jets are based at Marham at the moment, have lost track of what's what.
14, should be 15 but one is still in the US.

Re: a few whirlybirds from the west country

Nice photos,

Never seen a Merlin in a bag before, a little too big for my Tesco trolley :D :P

I wonder if it's just for long term storage.

Great info

Let's hope if and when one is repatriated it is not ZM141 or ZM137!
Aren't the three 17 jets "orange wired" so wouldn't really work with the Marham jets?
