The nine that displayed at Falmouth yesterday were reported as:

XX227
XX242
XX177
XX278
XX204
XX311
XX244
XX232
XX323

Just depends whether the 10th ship was subbed for any of the above in today's display.

XX227 was retired in February and XX204 crashed at Valley.

That's true! I'd love to know where GT3ZZZ has got that list from because it's well out of date, they took the following airframes to RIAT last month :- XX219, 242, 244, 245, 278, 310, 311, 319, 322 & 325.
They have 12 aircraft in total I believe, so which ones turned up at Cromer today is anyone's guess unless someone recorded the serials on departure from Scampton.

Thanks for your help everyone. I also saw them do a flypast over Wells- next-to the Sea on their return from Cromer.
