As Ex XV Groundcrew 'Laarbruch 1984-87'. Any ideas if they are holding a social gathering to commemorate this centenary event?.

At least it isn't merely a 'fin-job'. Just about, anyway.

Nice looking painting with the F for Freddie "McRoberts Reply" Stirling in the background.

Well the last I heard was that XV will survive as the Tornado OCU till 2018, I suppose that depends how long the replacement takes. I still think the OSD should be 2021 just in case.


But I suspect I know what will happen on the next SDSR (aka lets cut more important stuff).....


V1


It flew today btw.
