FFS, isn't there a spare Tonka frame kicking about that they could use? At least the baby engineers will be working on something that is still in the operational inventory (and will probably still be when they are instructors! )

I am not sure that there is a tidy profit to made when the value of the contract is 20k-40k. MOD cheapskates.

Got an old Jaguar aircraft in your scrapyard? Want to turn it into cold hard cash? N Joe Enterprises sense a lucrative rental opportunity and will guarantee to beat any MoD offer.

(Based on a true story about the Goose Bay LOX plant. Bought by an ex-pat when the RAF decided they didn't need it. He refused to sell it back when the RAF changed their mind but happily sold us LOX for many years.)

Maybe they want an aeroplane - not a flick-knife?

Why dont they use some of the much unwanted traunch 3 Typhoons, that way the aircraft will see some form of operational service! And the worlds greatest air display aircraft will have added a new string to its bow

This looks like another complete cockup! I thought the last remaining Jags were flown into Cosford for long term storage!!
Surely they could use one of them?

Reminds me of when we folded Treble One and handed over to the
F4. All the Mk 3 Lightnings were towed to the far side of the airfield and a couple of weeks later were all on their bellies with the bset bits removed! Six months later when the Lightnings at Binbrook were getting short of hours, someone asked where the Wattisham Mk3s were hiding? Too late mate!!

Yes there is, but I am keeping it until such a time that the tonkas are no longer in service & the MOD what a "taxiable" one.
