ZJ949 was towed into the spray shop this morning,Are we going to see the first 6Sqn Typhoon in full marks next week? or QO-J 3Sqn.
Also visiting to-day Puma's XW199 and XW236 called in for fuel twice.

Cheers Kevin.

According to the link, it will indeed be another one for 3 sqn as QO-J. They're also giving ZJ944 as QO-B. http://www.bmal.org.uk/typhoon.htm

11 sqn didn't do too well from the latest batch of deliveries did they.

I think all the block 8 Typhoons may go to 6Sqn when they form.

1435 Flt is manned by personnel drawn from across the F.3 force, likewise when Typhoon heads “Down South” it will be manned by personnel drawn from across Coningsby and not exclusively one Squadron as the Harrier and Tornado Dets are in sunnier climes.

Did it fly in squadron colours Milky, or is it just coded and unmarked?
