Nice catch. Colourful mks. What's not to like! However, yet another Lossie based unit. Seems like half the RAF will soon be up there. Must already be the largest base yet continues to expand. Eggs in basket, next Scottish Independence Referendum (to which the Scots Nats are committed). Is continuing to concentrate RAF up there really such a good idea?

Lossie isn’t any bigger today than it was during the 80’s. Like any other base Squadrons move out and Squadrons move in. Coningsby is due to get a fourth and maybe a fifth Typhoon Sqd over the next couple of years so we better hope that Lincs don’t want to break away.

But quite surprisingly, to me, not on the official farewell tour list for the Tornado.

This was flying unmarked on Monday 11th, must have been a quick paint job.
Cheers.

You wouldn't think it with the miserly amount of flying that's been going on lately!

Great catch indeed! I must admit there are alot more jets up at Lossie with unit markings, than at Coningsby. Hopefully the markings will stay abit longer!

Can anyone make out what name they are putting on the jet?

I was thinking along similar lines, but I feel sure it all comes down to cost. One of the recent articles states how valuable these new Typhoon agressor squadrons are going to be for the F35 adversary training, from Lossie.... ?? In an ideal world I expect the RAF would (a) have never vacated Leuchars or (b) based the additional Typhoon squadrons at Leeming.

Beggars cant be choosers I suspect.
