That is a very tired looking paint scheme - like the 100 ARW style black nose markings.

Once again you have the best weather, visitor & shots. A super trio of a well-used 'smoker'. Has to be #3 for me too as the carbon neutral credentials are clearly visible! :whistle:

Class, pure class Dougie, so pleased you managed to catch this, they are all fine shots, but the take-off is really excellent.
Cheers.

Lovely shots! The old bus has certainly been through some weather by the look of her.
