Can anyone provide the serials for the BelAC F-16, the 2 x RNethAF F-16's, AAC Apache and the RN Sea King all on static please?

Also the AAC Apache for the flying display please?

I believe they were all due in today (14th) apart from the Sea King which was due in on the 12th.

Many thanks

Len :)

The second Apache which arr Fri 14/7 @ 1615L was ZJ230 "Apache 1" on modeS. "Apache 2" was showing as ZJ203 on modeS which I believe has been eyeballed as correct.

Looking at my pics from the Apaches arrival ZJ230 seems to be correct. Hard to see, but I thought ZJ230 before I read this post.

So, the TB F-16C that needs double checking is '2' as this was previously quoted after arrival as 92-3880 (see: https://www.threshold.aero/data/riat-2017-live-arrivals)

91-0392, 0413, 0479 (F-16D)
92-3881, 3888, 3896, 3898, 3908.

One of the 'Cs was in the RH B-2 hangar today (Saturday). As the doors were open, you could just see its distinctive nose.

TBirds departure Monday
1st group 4 - codes 1; 2; 3; 4...nicely in sequence...
2nd group 4 - codes 7 (D Tbirds Tbird!) ; 5 (placed inverted presume for the inverted mirror passes which didnt happen as this ac went u/s on at least one day); 6; 32 (thirty two).

2nd group seem quite random - apart from 2 seater can anyone tie-up codes to serials please?
