A400M Atlas Flypast
Date: Thursday 24th August
Subject to operational commitments and serviceability, we are pleased to announce that an RAF A400M Atlas will fly past the Regatta on Thursday 24th Aug at 6pm.
Atlas came into service as the 2nd Tranche replacement for the C130K to provide a tactical air lift and strategic oversize lift capability. Operated by 2 pilots and a Weapons Systems Operator (Crewman) (WSOp (Cmn)), the aircraft has the ability to carry a 25-tonne payload over 2,000nm to established and remote civilian and military airfields, or by landing on short, unprepared or semi-prepared strips.
