Closing Cottesmore to pay for Chinooks...
Looks like Wittering will get busier before it gets quieter!

Does the station have / hold a position on how this will effect the total base?

They must know quite alot about this already.....

Looks like they will be disbanding one squadron and the other going to Wittering. I doubt that this will have much impact, as they will probably disband the training unit (20 Sqn) as they will, probably not need any more new pilots.

The closure is planned for 2012, so a couple of years before it happens. Anyway, as there will be an election early next year, who knows..................
