Re: 216 Sqn to stand up in April as a swarm drone squadron

Re: Should elderly drivers be forced to re-sit their driving test?

Can someone help with the id of the CH-47 that didn’t fly Wednesday morning please?
I think it was the one that night stopped at Stansted which from memory was 13-08137. But it was one of two using the same hexcode AE599F.
