Re: European NH-90s

Excellent selection.

I didn't like the aesthetics of the 90 when it first came out compared to the curves of the Merlin, but I have a soft spot for those lines now......

Thanks.

Inter-Service sabre-rattling. Nothing more. Nothing less. Nothing is going to change unless someone takes the respective Chiefs of Staff and tells them and their staff to stop behaving like spoilt children. Or sacks them, no pension.

Re: RRR622 Voyager ZZ336 (new paint scheme)

Newspapers are spot on, the £900,000 covers the design, development and application of the paint scheme, nothing else, no servicing, no VIP interior fitment, that was already onboard. Thanks, Tony, I know you're a pretty good source for info, but unless that's from the horse's mouth, I'll reserve j...

Avro Arrow article (BBC Future)

See below. As a bit of a space geek, I already knew about the Avro engineers going on to work for NASA when the Arrow project was cancelled, but it's still a very interesting article. https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20200615-the-record-breaking-jet-which-still-haunts-a-country?utm_source=pocket-n...

Re: RRR622 Voyager ZZ336 (new paint scheme)

Some newspapers are saying a large part of the cost was the fee paid to the design company the Gov employed to come up with the livery. Don't believe what you read, it's just poo-stirring. Unfortunately that's what happens when you PFI something, the consultancy fees are bigger than the costs to do...

I think this aircraft was fitted out a few years ago, it's been used by government officials since around 2017 I believe!

Re: RRR622 Voyager ZZ336 (new paint scheme)

Reading this thread,I see a figure of £100K being mentioned instead of the £900K quoted in the media(the £900K is Still being reported by my BBC local Radio this morning). Which is right? I doubt 900k would of been just for paint. It probably has a new interior as well. The whole aircraft has proba...
