Re: Camouflage Tornado at RIAT 2019

I think the Saudi deal is pretty much done and the aircraft used for trials have been 2 Saudi ones based at Warton. As far as I remember, the Saudi ones are due for retirement in 2020 unless I missed a further extention announcement

Re: New bases?

The date for the two squadrons deployment is 2021 according to the OP, surely we will have more than 617 active by then?

Re: Tornado inbound

Not sure what the serial was but ZH857 isn't a Tornado and has never been allocated. Suspect a typo for something else :thumb:

Re: Potential Blackhawk Replacement Starts Ground Tests

Well the Blackhawk was designed to do exactly that, fit inside a c-130 as it was a requirement, whether that is still the case for its eventual replacement I don't know

Re: QRA

Yes I am fully aware who does QRA in this country, I was merely suggesting that, as it is just up the road, Lakenheath was probably the source of fighter aircraft noise
