Ptisi Greece reports about another flying legend 
The Jetstream T.2 of British Royal Navy will be repaced by the King Air 350ER
Many British officers have experienced the Jetstream inside
The Jetstream is known as the 'Flying Classroom'
We take a last look at this type and introduce it's successor
The Handley Page design dates from 1965
Here two examples as we spotted them on Malta Luqa airshow
Many cadets got their multi-engine training on this plane...
... and therefor also met nice places like above.
Both brother to brother in front of the (now) new built Lufthansa Hangar at Luqa
Outside not so much , but inside big difference between Jetstream (L) and King Air (R)
Here's a look from above on the Jetstream, RIAT UK 2008 
The 'Flying Classroom's cockpit, all analog equipment
Jetstreams's simple and quite narrow interior
A view at the consoles, quite outdated now but still very functional
Another look here, at Yeovilton Naval Air Station 
The successor King Air 350ER, on the sunny Malta Luqa platform...
... and see the difference in this 'Pilot's office' !
Jolly good luck King Air in your new carreer !
