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?

Is there any reason why 20-2 is so close to starting after 20-1 ends?

Hasn’t it always been like that, with the 3rd one taking place end of October into November ?
