Beginning of the end for 7 Regt?

#1
I just read that the Gazelles of 3 Flt did a flypast over Stirling on Jan 8th as "a prelude to formal disbandment". Does this spell the beginning of the end for 7 Regt? Can anyone confirm? I always thought it was a crazy decision! I guess there are just 6 weeks left now!

I also heard that there is a new review of Reserve Forces underway. I'd hate to think that the powers that be decide that 7 Regt was a great idea, just after they disband it!!

I guess I'm ever hopeful (or plain naive) that there will be a last minute reprieve... :(

7 Regt is continuing

Won’t be (V) and will be flying much more than Gazelles though :wink:

The plot thickens!! Now I'm really confused :? All the news I'm reading is that 7 Regt is still for the chop and March 31st is the last day...

CAARPS, your message is cryptic! This wouldn't have anything to do with "Their" new Dauphins would it?! :idea:

In any case, will Netheravon still be 7 Regt HQ??

7 Regiment (V) expires on 31 Mar 09, all personnel are moving on, TA pilots are being thinned out, Netheravon will cease to be a permanent AAC flying base. The title is being passed on to Flying Wing at Wallop...any clearer?

Crystal! So besides the number plate being passed on (very cunning I think, BTW! A good way of losing a Regiment without losing a Regiment!), my original post is essentially correct.
