What’s next for Warton now the last RAF Typhoon has been delivered, do they have another order to fulfill or will there be a quiet period production wise?

I can comfirm that IPA 6 ZJ 938 was the Typhoon on trials both AM and PM today the 15th, October 2019.
I found this interesting video of a Mig 29 on high altitude trials https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nr3RDLDs0fg

Thanks. wonder how much the passenger paid for that MiG-29 experience?
Climbed to just over 56000ft. Curvature of the earth more pronounced than I expected. Maybe exaggerated by lens used?

Departed as "BAE/Felix 101" (as usual) @ 1200L. Destination showing as Paphos on PlaneFinder, but Akrotiri on FR24. More likely the latter. Presume spares support for typhoon detachment there (unless of course it goes further afield...and is just staging thro Cyprus).

Cheers
