Final Graduation

Post by TARGET » Mon Oct 07, 2019 2:21 pm

I believe there is one last Graduation Day before the Tucano is retired. Any information as to a date would be much appreciated.
Many thanks in advance

If the RAF had got what it wanted when the JP replacement competition was running it would have been the PC.9

Which as the winner of the US JPATS that's exactly what a T-6 was developed from.
