Re: 25 Jun 2020 PHOTOS: Boris Brexit RAF A330 Voyager new co

Truly miss the VC-10. I know it was too old and expensive to keep it in service just for VIP transportation, but it really fit the British style and heritage. It was like arriving at the party in a classic Rolls Royce.

Re: Trump confirms plans to pull some US troops out of Germa

Anyone want to speculate where the Spang Vipers might go? CONUS or perhaps move east to an airbase like Poznan?

Ben geen luchtvaarteconoom, maar net als in elke markt zal de verhouding tussen vraag en aanbod de uiteindelijke prijzen gaan bepalen. De maatschappijen die deze crisis weten te overleven zullen slechts heel geleidelijk hun operatie weer opstarten, wat het aanbod van vluchten zeer drukt. Daar staat ...

Re: Syrian Mig 29 to Libya ?

Sounds like very fake news. MiG-29's have insufficient range to make it to Libya without stopovers in hostile areas. They would have to be shipped in secret, along with the personnel and material that is needed to support them.

EADS pitched a SEAD/ECR-version of the Typhoon, which would have to be developed first. AFAIK, the Growler is the only off the shelf solution on the western market.
