This move has been prompted by an increased demand for fast jet pilots for Typhon and F35b.
For what is thought to be the first time EVER, a Chinook has airlifted a vintage Hawk jet. Several Chinook personnel who were involved in the recent Whaley Bridge Dam crisis, airlifted the Hawk at Boscombe Down and headed towards Old Sarum Airfield. The XX154 was a pre-production Hawk model and will now be on display at the Boscombe Down museum.
RAF Cosford has welcomed some more aircraft into its engineering school. In total, the base has been gifted five Hawk aircraft, including this one which was transported in three pieces from RAF Shawbury last month.

Not sure what parts, if any, that are made in the UK to support the worldwide fleet. Which is slowly shrinking as the fleet ages. Shame no successor has been designed and manufactured.
