    It appears that Australia is to acquire two more Boeing P-8A Poseidons to further bolster their Maritime Patrol capabilities. The two new aircraft will join an existing fleet carrying it to a complement of 14 examples.

    America's Air Force 2 (C32A) the heavily modified Boeing 757 the US Vice President utilizes for travel is getting old, so is the Air Force going to replace this jet with something more modern like how the VC25A (747-200) is being upgraded to the Boeing 747-8? Coby Explanes ...explains the dilemma.

    The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) is partnering with Airbus to support the A330 MRTT (Multi Role Tanker Transport) Boom with data analytics. In addition, Airbus will provide the necessary data packs and support to ensure this upgrade features in the existing RAAF A330 MRTT Full Flight Simulator (FFS), the Integrated Procedures Trainer (IPT) and the Remote Air Refuelling Operator (RARO) Console Part Task trainer (PTT).

    News is that someone gained unauthorized access to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. Of course it is a security breach and like always there is the PR machine to cushion the appearance of that surprising reality. If you are not familiar this particular American Air Force Base is usually home to the aircraft of U.S Presidential travel, particularly the VC-25A aka what people know as 'Air Force One'. It is this fact that is what is concerning...a breach at a facility which the sitting U.S President typically uses to depart on domestic and even foreign trips. While the individual was unarmed and really didn't pose a threat, what if he was armed? The individual was said to have gained entry into a C-40 Clipper aircraft while on the base. This incident will surely spark a review of the current security at the base.

    The B-21 Raider is the new strategic bomber of the USAF for the future. The aircraft is currently in development and will be based off the B2 Spirit of course with all the current stealth related tech available. Some estimates are that the first flight could even be by September or October this year. We will have to wait and see as mitigating factors such as Covid-19 and even cost may push that back. The B-21 Raider is on the right hand side of the illustration.

    Two F110-GE-129 engines powered the first flight of the Boeing F-15EX fighter on Feb. 2. The round-trip flight took off and landed from Lambert International Airport in St. Louis, kicking off a new era of performance and reliability for the United States Air Force’s most advanced F-15 fighter. "On behalf of the GE team, congratulations to Boeing and the United States Air Force on the first flight of the F-15EX," said Shawn Warren, General Manager, GE Large Combat & Mobility Engines. "This milestone reflects the teamwork and dedication focused on the capabilities of this outstanding fighter. We are proud to power the Air Force’s most advanced F-15 fighter."
