February – RAF Lossiemouth New Aircraft
February 21, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
RAF Lossiemouth is preparing for the arrival of the new maritime patrol aircraft, the Poseidon P-8A.
The nine new aircraft are expected to arrive in 2019, with personnel and their families arriving later this year.
The new planes represent a considerable investment in Lossiemouth, with increased staffing and extra infrastructure impacting not just the base, but the surrounding area, too.
The Lossiemouth Business Association has invited Wg Cdr Dave Allen, OC Lossiemouth Transition Team, to present the plans for the base, and discuss the impact on the town and its economy.
We encourage all local businesses to join us at the Comrades Club (formerly the RNA) on the 21st February at 7pm, to be informed first hand of the situation, to ask questions and to evaluate the opportunities that the arrival of the P-8As represents.
There is no charge to LBA members to attend the event. For non-members, the price is £5, payable on the door. Please arrive promptly.
