Re: Russian Invasion of Ukraine - Military Aviation News and Discussion Thread

This will also be a challenge once the Luftwaffe gets the F-35. You cannot refuel it with the A400m unless the F35 gets a drogue/hose system, which is probably very unlikely. It just is the way it is, and the A330MRTT fleet allows both kinds of refueling, anyway. Can't they shoehorn the USN F-35C d...

Re: Aircraft stored at Bruntingthorpe scrapped (RAF Tri-Stars, VC-10's, Super Guppy)

But compared to how the 747s preserved in Atlanta and Australia it is a less fitting arrangement. Be it at Bruntingthorper or Cosford aircraft are just left to corrode in the elements and are scrapped. I believe the weather condition in Longreach, central Queensland is much more conducive compared ...
