Remind me again what there is an alleged shortage of in Afghanistan?
Yep, we know that Lynx, anti-submarine & AEW fitted aircraft aren't realistic troop carriers, but given that the government is looking for a 'quick-fix' regarding the alleged rotary wing shortage, my guess is the proposed scale of the Liverpool flypast may find itself substantially reduced whilst aircraft are stripped-out, converted & fitted with appropriate weaponry.
