Splendid, Mark, as per. :worship:

Reports seem mixed. I've seen one talking about the main spar, seen another saying the wing-sweep system is either completely broken or not working properly, seen another saying cracks throughout the entirety of the airframe. The only thing for certain is that it's not very well! Can't help but think that if it was a grey jet, they would have already RTP'd it... :dunno:

Anyway, hope it's fixed in time!

Number 4 has a very evocative "past/present" feel to it.

Hopefully if BAe can repair the cracks, where ever they might be, they might also be able to find a black radome to finish it off :) ?

Thank you people.

I think it will be out of action for a while but hopefully seen again in the next few months,

Mark.
