Re: British out of sequence serials - ZZ why?

The Voyager and C-17 serials "match" the a/c types A330 and C-17 so I guess that's reasonable. The F-35 serials "match" the early Lightning F1 batch, XM135 etc. Not sure about the Wildcats?

Re: More Texans arr or due?

On 10/5/18 N2824B (hex A2D84F) and N2826B (hex A2D895) routed Wichita, Des Moines, Ottawa so probably UK bound. N2824B was briefly in UK last year marked ZM323

Re: New Helicopter Deliveries

A couple of Juno queries:- (a) Has G-CKEW (c/n 2024) actually arrived in the UK yet? (b) Did G-CKJW (c/n 2027) arrive in the UK, and if so when? Removed from civil register on 17/10, so either didn't arrive or has become ZM5 something and delivered to Shawbury? Any answers gratefully received. Rega...
