RAF Lossiemouth

RAF Lossiemouth

Together with the UK Government, we've built a strategic facility at RAF Lossiemouth in Moray, Scotland. The facility is the home of the RAF's P-8A Poseidon fleet.

Atlantic Building at RAF Lossiemouth

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, office space and pilot simulators for training. Around 200 Boeing employees are based at RAF Lossiemouth, focused on maintenance, training and support.

All nine P-8A Poseidon aircraft operate from the base, where over 400 service and civilian personnel will operate and maintain the aircraft.

It has increased protection of the UK’s nuclear deterrent and Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carriers. There are 13 UK-based suppliers producing components for P-8A, making up 5% of every P-8A aircraft around the world.
