Re: Lincoln Options

My youngest is currently in her second year at Lincoln Uni - so understand the ‘time killing ‘issue! If you want to virtually guarantee movements then I’d say none of the above! On the other hand Cranwell generally has a steady flow of Phenoms, Prefects and Tutors. But thoroughly recommend Newark Ai...

Big Eric - The Tornado was NOT a wind-up!

Re: Tornado Farewell Tour

Very frustrating that his was done midweek when most of us are at work. Maybe they did it to keep the crowd level down. Not sure about other parts of the country - but in Shropshire and surrounds it's school half-term week - so it could be argued that they were permitting more folks to see the even...

Re: D-Day Event, 1994

On the 4th June I noted the following at Fairford:
84-0057, 85-0072, 86-0103 & 86-0113 all “DY” B-1Bs, 67-19417 EC-137D and 65-0260 C-141B.

The Canadians were at Lyneham on that date - 130313, 130332, 130333 & 130340 along with two French machines - 5144 & 5153.

Some of the early batch had access panels drilled on BOTH sides of the fuselage. The ones not required were rivited over!

Re: RAF E-3D ?

They already do have a boom capability - the longest mission they’ve done in the Middle East was 17 with (I think) 2 AAR sessions. The RAF E-3D managed a 17hr 55min sortie over Afghanistan in late 2001/early 2002 - it could probably have managed a bit longer - but I think by that point they’d run o...

Re: P-8 squadrons announced

With a large crew on each aircraft, there would be a lot of personnel for one Sqn, so they have two. Same logic as was used for 8 and 23 Sqns operating the E3. Yes, but the P8As are replacing Nimrods, which had much bigger crews (13 to the Poseidon's 8) Of course Sqns have more than just aircrew. T...
