XG 545 Sycamore Red Bull civil not ex RAF - Actually it is Ex. RAF ( G-xx-xxx Number though ) & German Navy - found this over on the Key Publishing forum :

"In the Hangar-8 we could see another piece of the collection still relatively unknown to fans because just bought. The Bristol 171B Sycamore HR.52 is the only helicopter of its kind in the world in flying condition, with a very long history as well. We tried to reconstruct its history with the data in our possession. Built in 1957 and after a short period of service with the Royal Air Force (serial G-18-148 c / n 13475) it was sold between 1957-1959 together with other 49 planes of the West German Air Force. The Sycamore has served in Germany with the Air Force with different identifiers codes as CA +328, AS +324, +206 SC, WE +545, +112 GD, 78 +17; retired from service in 1972/3 , it was included in the register of German civil aircraft as D-HALD in 1976 until 1983, when it was deleted without the navigability certificate, re-registered in 1987-1989, with the same serial number, it was then included into the Swiss aircraft register in August 1991 as HB-RXB and sold to Peter Schmid of Fleigermuseum of Alternhein where it has always been kept in perfect flying conditions; sold to Red Bull in 2010 it was registered in August 2011 as OE-XSY and bears the colors of the Royal Air Force Air Support Command Squadron 32 with code XG544."

Just a couple more requests. On the grass by one of the hangars. An SE5a and Unid WW1 monoplane. Also parked up next to the Sea Baliol was a Meteor which I don't seem to have noted the serial of.

Cheers

The SE5A carried 'B595' but is actually a replica - G-BUOD
The unid WW1 monoplane carried '5191', it's a replica of a Morane-Saulnier N, it appeared to still be 'under construction'!
I'm afraid there was no Meteor parked near the Balliol, there were 2x Jet Provost, a (piston) Provost, Chipmunk and a Bulldog.

Only Meteor on the showground was DG202, from the RAF Museum. Was parked at the end of the fighter line.

Thanks for the SE5a etc info.

I didn't mean the Meteor was next to the Baliol. It was next to the Sea Baliol just inside the entrance to the hangar with the Argosy etc.

Didn't see it myself, but unless it was hanging from the roof or had the prone pilot double cockpit, it was probably WA634 - an ex-Martin Baker ejection seat test Meteor?
