new merlin fleet

luke_manic

Midshipman
As most are probably aware the crabs (RAF) are receiving 22 new chinoks by 2013. As such RAF Odium can not cope with the extra capacity and the chinoks are to be moved to RAF Benson which is where the RAF merlin fleet is stationed. to this end the crabs are relinquishing there Merlin fleet and handing it over to the Navy. However the crabs engineers will not be moving with the kit and will infact stay to maintain the new chinoks.

so , after that very long intro, my question is this. Due to the large influx of aircraft that the Navy is set to receive, will this not massivley effect the AET world, to the extent that AET waiting times will dramatically decrease? Or, as i suspect, has this decesion all ready been forward planned?

Purely for the sake of accuracy, they are transferring from RAF Odiham.

Odium is a word which means intense hatred or dislike.
