In the latest issue of Air Forces Monthly there is a photograph of ZK301 on an Op Shader mission with the tail-code 'EW'

Probably went to China Lake on 19 September, and came back to Coningsby on 23 November as EB-L. Presumably already coded as that during September?

Thanks to all for the continuing info stream, TM74

Got a tour of Leuchars a few of years ago and he was the pilot who showed us around a Typhoon in a HAS, top guy.

I don't know, I am trying to find out why the aircraft has not flown since around 2010 and is now a training airframe at Warton.

I thought I read somewhere that ZJ922 had suffered a hard landing and was awaiting rebuild

Sorry if that is inaccurate

Cheers!

if my mind remembers right.
Shuck I will go back in my movements and let you know the date.

I read elsewhere here that ZK320 came out of the paint shed with "320" on the tail where the code used to be...

Looks like another step towards neutering the fleet... :(
