Does anyone know if those that have been delivered are currently at Cranwell or Barkston Heath please? I've seen conflicting information...

I paid my first trip to barkston since they received the new prefects and the following
were noted:

G-CJZR G-CJZI G-CJZF
G-MFTS G-MEFT G-CKCS
G-CKCO

also the Jordanian aerobatic team with there extra's were here apparently diverted in
the day before routing from Ireland to Holland.

Also noted at cranwell was G-MEPT phenom in RAF colours,there first one I trust.

Flying today 43C8BB, but still using callsign GCJZF, although it's been deregistered to MoD.

Also 43C8B3 [BKH1234] and 43C8B8 [CWL18].

From a post on MSF G-CJYB & G-CJYG were both noted at Barkston heath at 14.00 yesterday ,
these should become ZM302 & ZM303 in the near future

Does anyone know what G-CKCO will become is it ZM309 , just wondering seeing as I don't collect civil and I don't have access to a civil register. GAVE it up in 1967 far to many spam cans. TIA
