AB412 roadrunner

Post by marijn » Tue Nov 24, 2020 8:54 am

Last Saturday (21-11) an AB412 was seen roadrunning in Belgium to Germany.
The 'military' AB412 came from UK and was heading to the south of Europe.
Did anybody see this AB412?
Any ID? Or clue where it came from in UK? Or its destination?

Regards,
Marijn

Was it grey? If so may have been one of the 84 squadron ones heading back to Cyprus? I can't remember which one off the top of my head though!
I should probably change my name to EGCC again.

It was mostly wrapped in plastic, so unable to confirm. The skids were grey at least.
Comparing pictures of the AB412 with RAF Griffons HAR2s I see many details that corresponds!
Was there a 84 squadron AB412 that was in the UK (for maintenance) recently? Any ID?

Why would a 84Sq aircraft be delivered back to Cyprus by road?

ZJ704 was noted at Newquay last week on a low loader ready for return to Cyprus
Noted the same day was ZJ706 which had recently arrived from 84 sqd for maintenance
