That's an interesting pic Carl, it's Cormorant style. I didn't know the RN used them.  Now, who does decals for that  ;)

I've read recently that Qantas made the longest non-stop commercial flight in one of their new 787's. It was to test the condition of the crew and passengers over the flight time in leu of starting a regular flight, something like 19+ hrs IIRC.

U.S. Army Parachute Team receives its second aircraft.

The U.S. Army Parachute Team, also known as the Golden Knights, received a second C-147A, the military designation for the DeHavilland DHC-8, 315 Series. The aircraft replaces the Fokker C-31A which had reached the end of its life cycle and was expensive to maintain due to limited availability of replacement parts. The USAPT has used the Fokker C-31A as its primary jump platform since 1985 and it has been the only operational plane of its type in the United States since 2014.

We can hope someone will do 1/72 decals for the Hobbycraft kit.  *GRIN* Might be an interesting scheme to do my V-22/Dash-8 combination in.

Yes. A 1/72 Dash-300, 400 etc tooling is long over due.
