Re: ZZ332 / EC-331 into Manchester

Basically because we have 12-14 aircraft that can take fuel from a boom (and very rarely get refuelled from a 135 or KC10 unless in far off lands) compared to lots more that are probe equipped so makes more sense to have 2 and 3 point HDU fittings than 2 and a boom

Re: RAF Cottesmore Harriers revisited

As it's not current military shouldn't these pics be in the Warbirds or Golden Oldies section? They are no longer in service with the RAF or RN and never will be again.
