Being reported as ZM325 and ZM326, from various on line sources. Source on Scotavnet suggesting that they look like nightstopping as they've parked next to the hangar.

Shame due to work that I seem to have missed a historic moment, 2 of the first RAF Texan IIs routing thorough Edinburgh on delivery to the Royal AIr Force. Are they to be based at Valley with the Hawk T.2s?

Worth recording that FR24 shows them as being N2843B [A2DF9A] - is this the same one that was at RIAT or a different one? - and N2770B [A2C2D7].

Multiple use test/delivery registrations.

Indeed they are, one of the RNZAF Texans 'NZ1409' that went through the UK in previous years wore one of the N regs that appeared today.

Due out at 1100 tomorrow, to Valley.

Well they simply must come through the Selkirk to Moffat on their way down. :)
