ROYAL AIR FORCE UPDATE
One of the main priorities this year is to ensure the successul draw-down of XV(Reserve) Squadron, the Tornado GR4 Operational Conversion Unit. As the Tornado force reduces output in line with the previous Strategic Defence and Security Reviews, the last crews will be leaving the squadron for the front line at RAF Marham at the beginning of 2017. The Torndao has been the stalwart of RAF operations and has been conintuously "on ops" for an amazing 25 years; you mave noticed the commemorative pink Tornado in Operation Granby colours in March as it left the paint shop at RAF Lossiemouth and performed several flypasts around the UK before leaving for RAF Marham.
You will also have noted a glimpse of the future as we welcomed P8 Poseidon aircraft to Lossiemouth, on of the many participants of Exercise Joint Warrior which the station hosted in April. As announced in the 2015 Defence Review, P8 will be based at RAF Lossiemouth from 2020 onwards. To find out more about RAF Lossiemouth click HERE>>
