Cosford 2002

Has anyone got the serials of the Tornado F3 and Harrier GR7 that featured at the June 2002 airshow at Cosford?

Thanks in advance.

C-130J's are getting new wing spar upgraded should keep them flying till 2035 but then again look at the Nimrod MRA4.
That was a rather more radical upgrade though? Still, your point still stands.

That’s right, the 495th will be reactivated so two squadrons each of F15Es and F35As.

If you look at the photos on board the carrier there are 15 F-35s onboard.?

Nope, definitely 14. Unless they’ve got stealth mode switched on... :thumbs:
