Red Dragon Flt


Lantern Swinger
When 845 Sqdn conceived the “Red Dragon†flight for HRH in the 70's, many of the major components on the aircraft (Wessex HU5’s – there were two of them) were “lifed†(airframe flying hours or calander based), engines, gearboxes, fuel computers etc.

I believe they were 10% used but less than 50% used, i.e. if a “donkey†was lifed at 800 hours it was removed whether serviceable or not after 400 flying hours.

Does this concept apply to the current duo of his offspring?
