Thanks for the serial Graham, well done you! I saw it departing just i got to the enclosure after work (about 1:30pm)- but couldn't ID it.
I also noted parked up a Rockwell Jetprop (N51WF [with PC-12 M-IFLY next to it]), granted it's a strawberry, but a little unusual for here.
Plus as i headed to Helston i spotted what looked like a Citation landing (approx 13:40), i assume another strawberry, again, i couldn't get an ID from it.

Are you 100% on the Lynx being ZE376? my SBS had it as ZE375.
May well be a mis-programmed transponder

Unfortunately, Graham, the shown hex ties up with ZE375 - which is a Mk.9A, whereas ZE376 is a Mk.7.

Did it have wheels or skids??

:Oops: Apologies, folks.

Must be about time for a visit to Specsavers. I seem to have read the '378 line to arrive at Mk.7. :blush: :blush:

Hi all,
I saw a camouflaged Lynx go over here late morning N/S heading in the CU direction - and also as a matter of interest, a few circuits of a shiny Falcon circling around here - a lovely aircraft at about (est'd) 1000ft - also shortly after, a low flying Hawk - it nearly took our roof off (and the cat ran in scared!!) :O --Paul :thumb:

It's definitely ZE375. .
If you look at this picture of ZE376. http://data3.primeportal.net/hangar/ulr ... _of_25.jpg
And look at the word ARMY the Y Of army is part over the gray from the green in the camo..
In the above photo of ZE375 it clearly isn't.!!
I could of course be wrong. But I don't think I am :whistle: ;)

Looks like depends when the images are taken,

ZE376 http://forums.airshows.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=58116
ZE375 http://www.planespotters.net/Aviation_P ... 178&size=l

Both have the Y within same colour. To me it looks like a 5.

I blame Malf for all this, he should have taken a better picture. :lol: :P
