Friday 7th December 2018
Out on another properly foul, windy and wet ramp at 08:45 this morning was :

(ZR358/15-07) Merlin Caesar HH101

Couldn't actually read it off, but if they crash it before I can finally get to read it off I'm 'avin' it. :whistle:

They were also towing a Coastguard 139/159/189/whatever into the main hangars.

Cheers
Malcolm

Is it safe to assume ZJ118/B is now in the shop for conversion?

ZJ118 was seen still in squadron service at Yeovilton late last month (26th November), may have subsequently been roaded across to WHL.

Why would it have been roaded to Yeovil?

the use of the word 'may' in the sentance was not casual or accidental.

ZJ118 was moved from the wash rack into the production sheds with rotors intact so presumably flew in.

No info on the code as it was only briefly outside and behind some staging. The MM was confirmed as it was moved into paint shop.
