Who uses the Range now?

Post by Unknown74 » Sat Jun 01, 2019 11:06 am

Just curious, what aircraft use Tain these days? Typhoons? Any F.15s? Have any F-35Bs been over yet?

Mainly Typhoons from Lossie but still used quite a lot by LN F-15s. No F-35s as yet. Hawks are occasional users.

No real need for F35s to use the range. Most air to ground work is carried out in the simulator or they use Holbeach on their door step.
