Re: Old Apache AH1

Looks about right to me Has ZJ177 been scrapped or is it an instructional airframe. I thought it was in use as a load trainer or such like for the navy ? It is not used as a load trainer. More for investigations with the recovery and repair following accidents. It has since been scrapped according ...

Re: Salmesbury

The Hawk outside with the Tornado is not ZK533. This is visible through glass windows at the school around the corner.

Only candidates I can think of is ZK532?
Or maybe ZJ100 or ZJ951 earlier test ones?

Any ideas?

The 3 x Chinooks I believe are ZK550, ZK551 & ZK553
