And an early morning arrival and departure was 32 Squadron AW-109 GZ100 "RAFAIR1319"
If it wasn't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all...

Yes, XX281 was on a test flight after work in AMRO but not after a major servicing.
The aircraft arrived by road from Culdrose with a fault which couldn't be solved down there and once fixed needed a longer runway than available at Culdrose.
After a great deal of work by the AMRO engineers, they finally got to the root of the problem and following three tests down the longer runway at Valley the aircraft departed for home yesterday. :thumbs:
