And with wheels not skids it it's not ZD560 either - sorry Phil!

It's been painted in similar colours to G-LYNX but where it's going to fit in, on site I'm not sure we know yet. I hope it can be seen from outside when finally displayed.

A couple of us were chatting at the fence yesterday and trying to work out what else could be under the plastic other than ZH964. We didn't think it likely that they would bother to wrap a Wildcat for the short trip to Yeovilton, so thought ZD560 was the only other likely candidate. However, I checked Ben's list again this morning and note that ZD560 is destined for display at Yeovil.

Didn't it used to be with ETPS? I seem to have seen it at Boscombe in 1988...

Yes it did. I have a note of it in ETPS colours at Middle Wallop in July '88.

ZD560 has skids, so it certainly is not that. The profile of the wrapped Lynx certainly fits that of a Super Lynx, so unless ZH964 flies again before month ends one would assume this was her on departure.

A quick look over the fence here yesterday (17th) found Navy Wildcat ZZ518 being pushed back inside through the first hangar door on the left. There was one Norwegian inside in the background.

At the western end were Merlins ZH864 & ZH843 plus Wildcat ZZ519.

I’ll keep trying!
