"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?

ZK436 (BS152) flown by WTN29 T/o 1536L on 07 for PFAT1 (first flt). flythro' u/c up at 1540L from west to east then landed 1542L popping chute.
