Hi all,

Is there any more planned deployments this year?
Any help would be much appreciated

I highly doubt anymore deployments this year due to COVID as personnel would have to undergo a 2 week quarantine which the US would not waste 4 weeks doing.

There is an ALTRV up for today for the correct height for bombers but no support has arrived at fairford so I doubt it but you never know. :P

'Optimism' is an admirable quality given the current worldwide situation. 'Dreaming' is plane (sic) crazy!! :whistle:

Still 6 months of the year to go, a lot can happen, but I would be very surprised if anything was to happen before August. July would’ve been reserved for RIAT so no deployments would’ve been planned for then anyway. That’s not say that aircraft could drop in for gas n goes.

Nothing until at least September which I've seen/heard of something in September being deployed but nothing concrete

Interesting thoughts :cool:
If you can keep your head whilst all around are losing theirs, you have probably completely misread the situation!!
