Re: Ex AGILE STANCE

Re: UK G7 2021- Tittle Tattle

With regard to Sunday at LHR….Biden is due to fly in on AF1 and I assume the C-32 SAM46 will turn up also. It has been mentioned that Mrs Biden is due to travel back stateside after their meet with the Queen at Windsor?. Given that SAM46 will probably accompany Biden to Brussels and onward,does any...

Re: UK G7 2021- Tittle Tattle

Now the Army CH-47 have cancelled to Northolt it will be interesting to see what supports the VH-3s for the Windsor leg? When trump visited it was 2x VH-60 and a Merlin HC3A Hi, I will stick my neck out here!….In my opinion,you don’t need 4x MV22’s to accompany 2 VH-3s from Newquay to St Ives/Carbi...
