EZ-S715 has just passed overhead Benson heading north-east: perhaps this time it is the delivery flight (to Stansted?).

Every time I type something, they change course!

Sharp turn to port near Daventry, and now on a heading south-west, looking like a direct track back to Yeovil!

Anyone confirm when ZR339 arrived "home"

It was air-tested here in Italy on March 2nd then on the 7th took the presumably scenic route home via the South of France as Westland 21
