You forgot the RC-135's.
So they're definitely staying put and not going to Mildenhall?

Re: RAF E-7 Wedgetails?

Slight thread drift I appreciate; but what exactly will be operated from Waddington in the near future? Red Arrows, Shadow and Protector? Any replacement for the Sentinels likely?

Beluga XL at Newquay Airport

F-WBXL - A330 743L Beluga XL currently circuit bashing after flying straight from Toulouse. Assume training. Providing quite a display for the locals. Anyone seen this before?

Re: Canberra WT327 to the U.K.

Nobody buying the explanation regarding using WT327's cockpit vs WK163's?

Is WT327 close to airworthy as she is? I guess I'm asking; is 'combining' the two the most likely way of getting a Canberra airworthy?

Re: Request time and some fun. RIAT 2021

In terms of types there are a few you'd think would be easy enough to get. Many sadly impossible. Particularly hard task to get an F-32.

The police use it so you'd imagine they would keep the airfield operational for them surely?

Re: BA retires entire Boeing 747 fleet

Very sad indeed. I was hoping there might have been a 'pleasure' flight or two. However covid would have likely put pay to that anyway.

Re: Sunday 2 August – Drive-in Airshow (At the Movies)

Great to hear that it's another sell out. If this 2nd show is anything like the 1st then a great time will be had by all. It's really brilliant to see Shuttleworth being such trailblazers and leading the way in restarting airshows. Clearly some of the early pioneering spirit so beautifully preserved...

Do you know what the purpose of the visits are? It appeared to immediately taxi back to the end of the runway and take off. Long way to come to spend 6 minutes on the ground.

Scampton should become a dedicated live museum.
