Tempus Applied Solutions has acquired six Lockheed L-1011 aircraft formerly owned and operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF), the company announced on 12 March.

Four of the aircraft are configured for air-to-air refuelling operations and the remaining two are configured for passenger and cargo operations. They previously served the RAF and NATO.

Scott Terry, CEO of Tempus, said: ‘We are delighted that the aircraft inspections and records reviews were consistent with our expectations thus allowing us to complete this very important transaction.

‘We can now focus our attention on military customers in the USA and NATO that have urgent requirements for air-to-air refuelling services. Now that the deal is closed, our potential customers can better understand our commitment to the aerial refuelling mission.’
