Once again:

Both the P-8 and E-7 have galleys and toilets. However, for some inexplicable reason, Boeing saw fit not to fit a sink in the Poseidon. There is however a sink in the E-7!!!

Out of interest, that’s one of the early jets with only 5 mission crew consoles. Our jets will all be getting a sixth station.

In the space where the sink should be on a sensible aircraft??? ;-)

Why is it parked-up - being worked on - round the back of the "used car parking lot" ?!

I'd hate to think it is a spare "cut and shut", getting a quick paint-job, before some poor, unsuspecting, punter turns up ;) .

First look at a painted British P-8 Poseidon Maritime Patrol Aircraft

Recently we reported that aircrew have commenced the flying phase of training to fly the Poseidon MRA Mk1 (P-8A), the UK’s new maritime patrol aircraft.

The RAF say in a release that Pilots, Weapons System Officers and Weapons Systems Operators have entered the simulator and flying phase of their six-month course.


The personnel, from CXX Squadron at RAF Lossiemouth, are being trained by a mix of US Navy and RAF P-8A ‘seedcorn’ one-way exchange instructors on a course which covers a substantial range of topics.

The Poseidon is based on the Boeing 737-800NG aircraft, the supply chain for which is already supported by UK industry, providing several hundred direct UK jobs. UK manufacturers also provide specialist sub-systems for the P-8A, for example Marshalls (auxiliary fuel tanks), Martin Baker (crew seats), GE (Weapon Pylons) and GKN Aerospace (windshields).

The first course have qualified and are coming home soon; the second course is well into its training and the third arrives soon. The initial groundcrew cadre is also growing with some already back at Lossie.
