GIANT CARGO AIRCRAFT DELIVERS NEW RAF LOSSIEMOUTH SIMULATOR

A giant Antonov AN-124 cargo aircraft touched down at Glasgow Prestwick Airport on Monday (17/08/2020) to make an oversized delivery of a new Operational Flight Trainer (OFT) heading to RAF Lossiemouth. The simulator is one of two that will be installed in the new £100-million strategic facility built by Boeing Defence UK. From Autumn 2020, RAF Lossiemouth will be the headquarters of the UK’s submarine-hunting Poseidon MRA Mk1 Maritime Patrol Aircraft fleet. The first simulator will be offloaded from the specially chartered Antonov - which took off from Orlando, Florida - and transported by road to RAF Lossiemouth, where it arrived in the early hours of Tuesday morning. The simulators and new facility managed by Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) are part of a £470m UK Government investment in the coastal RAF base in Moray, north-east Scotland.

A giant Antonov AN-124 cargo aircraft touched down at Prestwick International Airport to make an oversized delivery of a new Operational Flight Trainer heading to RAF Lossiemouth today (Sunday, August 16, 2020).
The simulator is one of two that will be installed in the new £100-million strategic facility built by Boeing Defence UK. From Autumn 2020, RAF Lossiemouth will be the headquarters of the UK’s nine-strong submarine-hunting Poseidon MRA Mk1 maritime patrol aircraft fleet.
The first simulator will be offloaded from the specially-chartered Antonov, which took off from Orlando, Florida, and transported by road to RAF Lossiemouth. It is expected to arrive in Moray late on Sunday evening or Monday morning.
The simulators and new facility managed by Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) are part of a £470m UK Government investment in the coastal RAF base in Moray, north-east Scotland.
The simulator is known as an Operational Flight Trainer (OFT), provided by Boeing but originally manufactured by CAE. It is 7.39m long, 4.01m wide, 3.73m high and weighs 9,545.45kg (9.5t).
Two OFTs and two rear-crew simulators will eventually be installed in the new strategic facility at RAF Lossiemouth, as well as part-task mission crew trainers, virtual maintenance trainers and electronic classrooms.
