Re: 27-09-12 The Captain's log

Hi Richard. Marham 32 was coded 043, and checking my photo's, can only read ZA5## The shadow of the wing tank was covering up last two, but looks like ZA551 or 557.

Hog 21 or 22.

Had a quick unexpected ride over to Holbeach this afternoon, Had Hog 21 & 22 come on and done a few turns and then buzzed us.
