"Majan 7" landed 1106L off ILS 25. first time visit. yippee! It nightstopped. It was reported that a twin seat typhoon fuselage from 358 hangar was loaded onto it. can anyone provide any further info on this please? Was it a full scale mockup used for trade shows etc or maybe an ex RAF stored airframe to be used as an instructional airframe?
