Reds to Wittering?

Post by cottesmore09 » Tue Mar 19, 2019 11:28 pm

So since Wittering, Waddington and Leeming have been shortlisted as the new home of the Red Arrows I think that Wittering will be the chosen base, it is also said that the R313 Airspace will be placed over Cottesmore for them the train (although i am not sure if there will be need of fire cover to do that)

The A1 argument in my opinion is a load of rubbish.

Surely being based at Waddington would effect operational requirements and Leeming will it is in wales and geographicly will be out of the way for a lot of UK shows meaning more overnight stays during displays etc.

What are your thoughts?

My thought is you better brush up on your geography as to where Leeming or indeed Wales are both located. :O

Clue, nowhere near one another.
