Does anyone have a serial for the 6th Croatian PC-9 that didn't fly on the Saturday?

And for completeness the Spanish Casa 101s and the Italian MB-339s?

Thanks
John
The 6 x Croatian PC-9s were: 055, 057, 059, 064, 067 and 069.

Re: USA Trip - December 2017

Very nice indeed, thank you. Particularly interested in your Luke AFB shots and where you shot them from? Would appreciate a steer if you're able and willing.

MTIA and thanks again.

Whilst I've seen the serial reported, for completeness 61-0018 does not carry a tail code or fin tip stripe.

Re: RIAT Then and Now

Public crowdline was massive not chock full of corporate hospitality where more time is spent quaffing free champers than watching the displays. Last year was the best I've been to for many years though. Won't get into that debate but suffice to say that the "free champers" is anything but and with...

Re: RIAT Then and Now

I should imagine that they would want to limit the number of museum pieces in the static display unless they had some real kind of relevance to the theme etc. That doesn't seem to affect the display of Bruno Stocker's endless parade of light civvie types. I'm keen on spotting Cherokees at my local ...

Shortly after 'take of' the pilot reported that he was having trouble entering / sending a 'Squawk' code / number, the number 6 kept appearing instead of 4. He request an RTB back to Fairford.

Unless any one knows different !!
Thanks for that, the single (86-0105) returned as Bone 45.

Re: Notam 20/10/17

86-0105/DY 'Bone45' arrived back at 1147L.

86-0101 was on the deck ground running for quite a while - rectification work on an engine snag?
