Thursday 24th October
At circa 11a.m. ZZ103 and the AW.149 were on the aprons both tail on to the footpath at the Eastern end of the field. Hangar doors shut - no sign of 107 or the Brazilian at that time

ZZ107 will have been on the main apron and the reference to ZZ103 being outside the hangar will have referred to the tarmac immediately outside the hangar itself, and not the main ‘flying’ apron.

Thanks for confirming. I went there at about 9am & they wee putting the Brazilian away, I returned about 10.30 & they pulled it out again taking it to the western end. Whilst the hangar door was open (most eastern one) another Norwegian Merlin was clearly visible (I guess in the second bay). Any idea if this was ZZ107?

Many thanks if you can help.

No idea I’m afraid, sorry. mjcmerlin might be able to confirm which bay it came out of, I wasn’t there.
I was lucky enough to catch up with my latest needs on Tuesday and Wednesday!

I'm afraid It could also have been ZZ 102 which is also there and in the same colour scheme

50/50 chance of it being ZZ107 (hopefully!), mjcmerlin, are you able to help?
