RAF Sentinel’s?

Post by Thunder » Fri Aug 16, 2019 10:25 am

I haven’t seen any mention or any photographs of a Sentinel in a long time and was wondering what the current fleet status was?

I believe there's currently four at Waddington, ZJ690-92 & ZJ694. Not aware of any ongoing serviceability issues.

ZJ693 is stored at Hawarden.

Depends on your definition of recent, but ZJ694 was in the static at RIAT last month. In addition ADSB Exchange shows ZJ694 flew Waddington to Toronto on August 12th and ZJ692 flew a mission Waddington - Lithuania and back (via few other places!) on August 6th.

They don't seem to have been flying much over the last few weeks, but ZJ692 and ZJ694 have been active at Waddington in August.

ADSB is currently showing ZJ694 climbing out of the Canadian base at Trenton and heading North East presumably now on the way back to Waddington.
