We are proud to reveal ZP803's new name as she comes out of @Boeing paint shop; 'Terence Bulloch DSO* DFC*'. Sqn Ldr Bulloch was a @CXX_Squadron pilot during WW2 with an impressive record as the highest scoring pilot in Coastal Command, someone for our crews to aspire to. https://t.co/breKId1kak

As we catch glimpses of ZP801 and 802 #SecuringTheSeas of the United Kingdom, here's ZP803 as she makes her way down the @Boeing production line before she joins the fleet later this year. Watch this space next week as she comes out of the paint shop with her new name on! https://t.co/Dn6QkE3WI9

A massive shout-out to our brilliant colleagues and partners @RAFLossiemouth, @CXX_Squadron, @HarvSmyth, @RoyalNavy, @DefenceES, @TheMorayCouncil, @Boeing for delivering IOC for Poseidon MRA Mk1, which are now patrolling the seas, hunting hostile submarines, keeping the UK safe

We are extremely proud to announce IOC for our much loved Poseidon MRA Mk1. It’s been a labour of love over the past five years working with great partners and colleagues and we wish to thank everyone involved in bringing this capability back to the front line. https://t.co/trSnCfhsmE

Another significant step taken on our MPA journey. ZP802 'City of Elgin' landed at Kinloss just before 11am this morning doubling our Poseidon fleet. Exciting times! https://t.co/r7KOtDEucs

The good news continues as our second Poseidon, ZP802, proudly named 'City of Elgin', has landed in @NASJax_ and is now under @RoyalAirForce ownership. It's been a busy couple of days for the UK's MPA fleet! https://t.co/dOa4OiKzb7

As if anti-submarine warfare wasn’t challenging enough once on task, getting off the station has its own complications, this guy was caught trying to climb the fence at NASJax. https://t.co/cj5l1Ai1rK https://t.co/hbA1QLTyzI

As the @P8A_PoseidonRAF force continues to grow ahead of first aircraft delivery a week from now, Master Aircrew Salmon conducted his final flight on VX-1, the USN Test and Eval Sqn. He’s flown over 1200 hours on P-8A. He returns to the RAF Maritime force to share his experience. https://t.co/jMvBxnxG55
