    Pilatus has another 9 PC-21 for the French Air Force. We say 'another 9' because the Air Force already purchased 17 of the PC-21 trainers in a 2017 order. The French procurement authority, the Direction générale de l'armement (DGA) , signed the agreement with F-AIR 21 (Cognac Formation Aero SAS France), with Pilatus acting as the exclusive subcontractor for the supply of the nine PC-21s and other ground-based training systems and spare parts. The order will secure jobs in Switzerland, where the PC-21s are produced.

    Six Embraer/Sierra Nevada A-29 Super Tucano training aircraft were shipped from the United States on July 14. They were being delivered to Nigeria to fulfil an order that the Nigeria Air Force made. The long journey involved fuel stops in Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Spain, and Algeria. Next month the aircraft will be drafted into the Nigeria Air Force officially.

    A look at Norway's new Boeing P-8A Poseidon. "This inaugural flight is an important milestone for Norway, and the Boeing team remains committed to delivering the P-8 fleet to the NDMA on schedule," said Christian Thomsen, P-8 Europe program manager. "The P-8A is a capability that will help Norway improve anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, and search-and-rescue missions, in addition to fostering valuable regional collaboration and interoperability with NATO nations." The five P-8As that are on order will upgrade and replace the older MPAs the Norwegian Airforce currently operates. Norwegian Air Force current fleet of six P-3 Orions and three DA-20 Jet Falcons will be replaced as they take deliveries of the new equipment.

    Here is a distance look at the first Airbus A321LR for the Luftwafe. Of course in this photo it did not have the powerplants fitted.
