They've already got the equipment at Waddo to fly drones, just depends if they need specific kit to operate this one.

They may end up flying it in, as per RIAT 2019 that seem's so long ago.

Either way, I think it may be hush hush for it's arrival to prevent protestors, although I'm sure they will show their faces at some point.

Was it not in 2018 they flew the drone into Fairford for RIAT?

No problem :thumbs: I only remember as I was standing in the field where I camp hoping it was going to land on runway 27 like most of the aircraft that day but they gave the drone pilot the option of which runway he would like and he chose 09 just my luck :'(
