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. :(

Re: DHFS SQUIRRELS & GRIFFINS

Many thanks I appreciate it. I had heard Shawbury was very anti-spotter, a shame really as the visits were excellent.

Do you have a departure date for ZJ269 (G-BXJN) I noticed it doesn’t seem to have been sold to the states?

Thanks again,
Ben
