Hi

I had heard they were MM7307 and MM7329 from a man at Mildenhall a couple of weeks back

I don't do dots so not a problem for me but I would need MM7346 instead of MM7329!
My info came from Italy.

Seen heading west on the M4 around J13 at noon today on two low-loaders, nose and additional parts of a silver Lightning (not the F35 kind). Any help identifying appreciated.

Re: Tornado final weeks info

RTP is now completely finished with the last GR4 departing to Leeming a few months back. RAF Honington are most likely going to be receiving ZG752 (Camo GR4) as a new gate guard.

Re: Budget DSLR For Novice?

Hi all, I'm still undecided on which camera to go for. I quite like the attraction of an all in one bridge camera, but it's just that long range zoom quality that I'm not sure about. I'm just wondering which cameras can go long range without suffering from a deterioration in image quality. The sear...

Presume its undergoing conversion to HC.6 standard.

Bit like triggers broom, no retirement in sight yet.
It is still an HC4. (The upgrade actually takes it to HC6A standard).
