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.

RAF acquired its first P-8 Poseidon in February 2020. In addition, teams of British military personnel were trained in the United States to adapt to new aircraft.
