@rwb2112 Thanks they won't be around much longer the MOD wants to take them out of service by March 2021.

Really cool pic of a quite unusual plane. Read your comment Robin. Unbelievable, not that old, all that development, all that money and after only 14 years, goodbye. You never to cease to wonder at the wisdom of governments.

@Gavin I hear you there on wasted military spending!! Here is the report about taking them out of service. https://ukdefencejournal.org.uk/sentinel-r1-to-be-scrapped-next-year-due-to-obsolescence-say-mod/ The wild part is that they knew it was going to need a major upgrade just a few years after its introduction.

The B-2 is no different with it expected to be taken out of service once the B-21 is active. So if you figure that each B-2 was 2.1 billon USD at 35 years of service it cost only 60 million a year just to buy the thing. that does not include maint, operating and crew costs. The Sentinal R1 cost around 12.5 million pounds for each year of service.
