Not entirely sure, must be to do with Cargo capacity or something? It's stated on the DTVMovements (www.dtvmovements.co.uk) website so it can't be wrong information?...

It was, which were both expected to go to Durham Tees Valley. Now, the plan's have changed and the larger C-17 will be bringing in the support equipment. We'll see, but the website is usually very reliable so I'm taking their word for it. Probably make a visit over to be honest!

About the P-8, which is kind of understandable...

Hi Jacob.

Was referring to the P-8 at DTV. My bad for the confusion. I'm not sure how late Leeming will be open for arrivals, so I guess it's just a waiting game I'm afraid.

Nothing popping up on PP alerts at the moment, which suggests it may be a no show today unfortunately!
