And as Cilla Black used to say "Surprise surprise" ........No E-3 Sentry as of yet, should have arrived nearly an hour ago....Not looking good for it to arrive but I guess we all kind off thought that anyway as its notorious for not turning up or cancelling.

To be fair the post about it cancelling was put after I asked about it.

Who said that it's been cancelled? It could still arrive later today or tomorrow, or they could send another one.
Fingers crossed that it can still arrive.

Yeah front tyre on 1st Harrier that landed....I know it's a quick fix but do they have any support with them? Or is their support aircraft still due? Hopefully it's fixed in time for Friday.
