The Royal Air Force (RAF) received the last Boeing P-8 Poseidon, which landed at Lossiemouth Airport in Scotland on Tuesday (11).
The new aircraft assigned to the RAF departed from Boeing’s Seattle facility in the western United States.
The new aircraft is the Boeing 737, which has been modified for military maritime patrol missions and will not only assist the United Kingdom in many missions.
In addition to maritime patrols, Poseidon can carry out surveillance and search and rescue missions.
Is the Poseidon Fleet over? What a great way to start 2022 !! #TeamLossie We are pleased to announce the arrival of our ninth P-8A Poseidon Marine Patrol Flight!
