Re: A Wet Weekend @ Prestwick for Kuwaiti, US & French AFs

Hi, one or two visitors from the last few weeks. Thought it best to post the French A340 on it's own.

Re: RAF Atlas A400M & others @ Prestwick

The location on the NW coast of the UK is also suitable for crew rest, quite a few transatlantic flights call in here ...
