    New aircraft, new colours?

    According to the local press, QinetiQ and the MoD have agreed to invest approximately 180m to modernise test aircrew training at Boscombe Down and air ranges in Wales and Scotland. The world-famous Empire Test Pilots' School at Boscombe Down will receive a fleet of modern traing aircraft and an up-to-date syllabus for Test Aircrew Training.

    Does anybody know which aircraft are in the running and will they all be painted in the traditional ETPS red white and blue colours?

    Pilatus PC-21s are on order to replace the Hawk T.1s and Alpha Jets.

      What's the black spinny thing at the front? The Hawk and the Alpha Jet don't have them.
