Re: Newquay 30/09/20

ZR324 and ZR325 were both sold on. They went to a company at Kidlington, i believe one has been sold. Your Grey Bell will have been ZJ704 which has since departed on its journey back to Cyprus. Possibility your big helicopter in the corner was the AW139 ZR283, which I believe is now for sale? Regatd...

Re: Former Ghana AF Islander

Jon,

Great photo mate. I am aware of the Air Alderney colours one this should be Ex G362, not sure if it’s still here was supposed to have been operational by now.

G360 and G363 should also be present, I thought there was a total of 4?

Can anybody shed any light?

Thanks
Ben

Unfortunately F-001 was not in the static it was towed to a HAS with maintenance issues, and therefore I did not see it. :(
