Together with the UK Government, we’ve built a new strategic facility at RAF Lossimouth in Moray, Scotland. The facility is the home of RAF’S P-8A Poseidon fleet.
The facility, with a steel structure 19 metres high, 165 metres long and 100 metres wide, is equal to 1.5 times the size of BT Murrayfield Stadium and is large enough to park 280 double decker buses. It can hold three aircraft, as well as maintenance space, planning rooms and office space. There will also be pilot simulators for training. Around 200 Boeing employees will be based at RAF Lossiemouth, focused on maintenance, training and support.
All nine P-8A Poseidon aircraft will operate from the base, where over 400 service and civilian personnel will operate and maintain the aircraft.
