RC-135 certainly needs to be refuelled and we're yet to know what impact not being able to refuel P-8 and E-7 will be as they're not in service with the RAF yet.....precisely.

I believe that the RAF are trying to set up rearcrew aircrew reserves at RAF Waddington (funny old thing, it's not all about FJ pilots).

Non Commissioned Aircrew rank

Personally I think the Air Cadets wearing the NCA ranks following their five minute gliding course is disgraceful. However, I know that others don't have a problem with it (including fellow NCA)....

Just wondering if any aircrew qualify for the Op NEWCOMBE (Mali) GSM 2008. I know that absolutely NONE of the Sentinel aircrew qualify although many did op missions over Mali. They didn't qualify on...

Op NEWCOMBE

I think it must have been the Royal Navy who set the criteria for the Op NEWCOMBE medal (GSM) as none of the aircrew (from a particular unit) who flew missions over Mali in 2013 qualify. Whereas if...

Sky News is reporting P-8s to be based at RAF Lossiemouth! If true, that would be a real shame not to co-locate at the ISTAR 'hub'. - I'm sure the Kinloss die-hards will disagree though.

If it does materialise, bring it to Waddington. Let's get out of 1 Group (they don't really like us ISTAR types anyway). Spend some money, like they've done at Coningsby and Lossiemouth, and make it...

I too heard that there was a shortage of SO2s- that is why they are commissioning NCA.
