Initial test flight completed

by Ian Homer. Posted to category: Engineering

and more planned



Those following our news feeds will probably already be aware that XH558 took off earlier today on an initial flight to test the recently fitted engines. The crew reported no concerns and are now planning a further flight to develop the crew currency needed for our 2012 display routine. This will be subject to a suitable weather window and hence, is not set for any particular time. 

Providing all goes well, the aircraft will take-off again on Friday and depart to RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire, ahead of this weekend’s Royal International Air Tattoo.
