Zj705 was seen plotting on 360radar earlier today. Flying low level to the West of Amesbury.
ZJ705 landed, from the west, back at Boscombe lunch time today, parking next to XX162 and G-ETPF.

Also, a grey Griffin HAR.2 was engine running here earlier and appears also to have been put away. Presumably ZJ705 from Boscombe?
Kevin,
Possibly, but ZJ703 has been on a major here this past few months (and is in the same colours), so that might be a candidate?

Re: Question about serial numbers

I read recently that the Dutch rebuilt AH64D's to AH64E's will involve new fuselages is this the same for the army Air Corps ones being rebuilt? Graham Graham, Good question.

Re: First four Mi-24 back to Hungary

Hi Levente, Yes I noticed these on Scramble last week. You picked a nice day and made some nice photos. It's a pity all the recent purchases are grey!

Romanian National Day 1 December 2018

Saturday 1 December is a national holiday in Romania and 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the Great Unification. Does anyone have any information on the flypast over the Arcul de Triumf in the north of Bucharest that day please? In particular, the axis for the flypast. Previous years have seen a ...

Very nice. Some good planning in those. Particularly liked the 'tower buzzing' shot. I guess maybe the lead pilot's name was possibly Maverick?? :D
Yep. 'Ghost Rider' was his callsign... ;)

Hi Keith,
I don't think AW.101s are built in Italy any longer, so any new ones should appear here. Malcolm has already pointed out 6 missing construction numbers in the build sequence shown on UK Serials...

Re: NATO Days Ostrava 2018

That's a nice set Steven. I particularly like the Yak, Viggen top side and the Ghost Rider 'pattern is full' shot. It looks like you did some walking to get those angles. It was an interesting display axis. Now, the €64K question: have you a shot that identifies the two MiG-29s that displayed on the...

Hi Judwin,
Yes, I believe so. It looked as though the fire crews were on hand prior to a potential ground run. It was in the colours of the previous Caesar examples.

ZZ105 was on the ramp at 08:45 this morning. We're getting very close to a year since the last newbuild military first flight.
It certainly feels like that, but wasn't ZZ104 f/f 17.01.18 and ZZ105 f/f 9.7.18?
