Beckett left today for the Med for 3-4 months for Sophia again and will be replaced by another afterwards up till the end of the year.

The tendering process for the CASA replacements has started, nothing surprising in the specs, I'd say it's just going to be a move to the 295 variant, wonder if it will just be a 1 for 1?

Given the state of the economy when the order finally happened that we got the full order is amazing, now if only the funding could be sorted to increase the establishment to crew the fourth hull and keep the peacocks in service.
