Glenn,
You obviously haven’t been looking in the right places then because the serials have been posted in various places.
Moreover, the third VH-60N that arrived yesterday is 163261.

Yes Jos. As I have already posted on other threads connected with this, park at the Polish War Memorial and walk back down the slip road towards the A40 (head west) and when the 125 becomes visible, so will the Ospreys.

Good luck!

Regards

When I visited briefly last evening around 8.00pm there was a single VH-60 parked with the 4 Ospreys.

Did anyone out there manage to ID it please?
