Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Linky

    Looks like they've finally cancelled this embarassingly expensive project.
    It always surprised me that Tony got this approved in the first place.

    I like the quote:

    It was only proposed a couple of years ago, I'm not aware of any huge shift in the cost of buying or operating airliners in that timeframe (last ten years, hell yes, but not 2 or 3). :roll:

    Basically they made a decision which meant it would have been hugely embarrasing for the first PM to use the plane and once Tony had gone it was very quietly dropped.
  2. It was probably for his freeloading wife.
  3. I would be interested in knowing how much they have spent thus far?

    I'm all for a private plane for the PM.

    Here's my suggestion;


    I'll even buy him a Hachimaki.
  4. That's one of those Jap wooden rocket powered kamikazes from 1945, isn't it?
  5. Perfect for Broon - It has a big red evil glaring eye on one side

    and no landing gear
