Re: what happens to old/obsolete missiles?

This is a serious question as i realised the other day that the RAF no longer uses the sidewinder or the sparrow/skyflash on their current aircraft so how do the MOD dispose of them? are they sold on or dismantled ?,sorry if this has been covered before but i thought someone on this knowledgeable f...

Re: F-35 Lightning on Op SHADER

They are not doing anything that a 40-year old Tornado was not doing before at a fraction of the cost 😜 Hardly a test of a 5th generation fighter. Oh and they are only there for 6 weeks rather than a normal 3-4 month deployment. Then I suggest you don't understand the ISR capability the networked i...

F-35 Lightning on Op SHADER

It was announced yesterday that RAF Lightning had undertaken armed missions in Op SHADER over Syria. Having been declared operational in December, 617 Sqn are now conducting operations with the jet. A leap in combat air power. https://mobile.twitter.com/JustinReuter ... 0491718657.

I presume parking tomorrow is standard show type parking in the fields by the Officers mess?

Looking forward to what should be a great sight and sound tomorrow :thumb:

Nice to see some shots from here. Is the base very busy with movements?
As shown in the photos above, the bolthole of the four BAe 146 of 32 Sqn also started on the 15 April when Northolt's runway closed for resurfacing. They will be based for around 6 months.

Re: Report of MOD cancelling dissimilar aircraft training project

Hopefully they will follow the F-35 solution and invest in networked high end simulators to do the EW Training. And Dets to Red Flag. It always mystified me how veteran jets could accurately simulate a PAK-FA, Chengdu J-20, an S-400 super MEZ or Krasukha-2 EW equipment. The F-35 Force is already doi...

Re: First P-8A for RAF

c32tracker, The point that acw367 is making is that if 7532 has been correctly reported at Renton this week as a MAX 8 variant, then it cannot be a P-8 as they are based on the -800 variant of the B737 family. Line number 7497 has also just arrived at Renton and that has been reported as a P-8 airf...
