RAF 2010 Calendar

Just received a copy of the RAF 2010 Calendar, bit surprised that there are no pointy jets at all, if you are a member of the Kipper Fleet you are well served though. Has the RAF PR love affair with the Typhoon ended?

Perhaps everyone has realised that actually it's SH and AT that are the workhorses, unless you include the 'operational' deployment of Typhoon to MPA!!

How about the operational deployment of the Tornado force (in Herrick ) having replaced the operational deployment of the Harrier force...

Or was i confusing bitchiness for banter? - one fight, one team.

Looks similar but with no pointy-types or AT, the version I have, if I remember correctly has:
Sentinel, Nimrod, CH47, Sea King, Nimrod, Puma, Merlin, Nimrod, E3, Griffin (SAR) and finally Nimrod (if I forgot to mention it before)
Looks like I might have got a Kipper Fleet special!

It does seem that there are two versions.

I was chuffed to see one of my photos made it into the calendar, but as ever I was not credited...

Damn the MOD and their Crown Copyright.

Maybe it reflects how the RAF will look come December 2010?

Grrr Look Closer

Perhaps a closer look will reveal to the more observant that not all the nimrods are "kipper fleet"...................

Nah, saving that joy for October, got 31 days to look at it then.

Not even a whiff of a L1011 in the version I have.
