RAF move Typhoon training operations to Kinloss as Lossie runway works continue

Essential Typhoon training will temporarily move Kinloss Barracks from RAF Lossiemouth on Monday 10 August due to critical resurfacing works taking place at te air base.

The resurfacing works are being carried out to house the RAF’s brand-new fleet of Poseidon submarine-hunting aircraft.

The Royal Air Force has Quick Reaction Alert Typhoons on standby every minute of every day ready to respond to any airborne threats to the United Kingdom, and it is critical that this capability is maintained during these essential works.

Quick Reaction Alert will temporarily move to Leuchars Station in Fife.

The £75 million runway resurfacing works are being undertaken by VolkerFitzpatrick and began late last year. This next phase sees the intersection of the two runways stripped, strengthened, and resurfaced. This cannot occur while Quick Reaction Alert and Typhoon training are based out of RAF Lossiemouth.
