Many thanks for the info - just some fettling (as we say in Norfolk) needed then!
Cheers, TM74

The ones that I haven't seen anything for recently are 12-0062 which (as noted above) departed to the South East on 08/01/2016 as "WORK71" together with 07-0033 as "WORK72".
12-0062 and 07-0033 were seemingly swapped over for 11-0061 which arrived as WORK 71 on 15/01/16 and another which i cannot find a serial for

As per this thread viewtopic.php?f=8&t=124033&p=775871&hil ... 71#p775871

Al, the other one was 08-0051.

I was under the impression that these were replacements for the two (0059/0060) that went East back on 1 February 2015. But I stand willing to be corrected.

Thanks for this Glen.
Does this imply that CV-22s -0059 & -0060 are back at the 'Hall or are they still based and still on TDY.
Many thanks,
Freeman

Think on the 135 front 72605/80069 and 00324 , have yet to receive there 100th markings,

I've got a note against these two, that they departed 01/02/15, possibly to 8SOS?

Edit. see this earlier post.
