Tuesday 9th February 2021
An aircraft transmitting hex code 497CC0 was airborne on VR from Yeovil for a brief period before midday.
The ADS-B database interpreted that as ZH584, which would make it the second Portuguese Super Lynx to fly following upgrading.

Hex code edited from 497CCO to 497CC0

I agree RadarBox shows ZZ110 up at 1145 down at 1155 just one circuit. It flew again later in the afternoon.

ZH583 flew just after lunch - 13:30 ish. Photo proof. It's got some cables gaffa taped all the way from the tail rotor gearbox area to the cockpit door on the starboard side. The tape is silver/white and the cables are dark/black so it looks like zebra pin striping. I did see the one this evening, but was on the phone so couldn't read it off.

Couple of bagger Merlins also flew today - ZH864 and one other - probably ZH833 but again didn't read it off.

ZH583 flew as WHE04.
ZH833 flew twice as WHE05.
ZH864 as WHE07.

No record on RadarBox of ZH584 having flown.

From memory, about the time of the Mars landing last night, ZH584 was showing a callsign of K1PPERTD. Perhaps the work isn't going too well and the engineers are having to work late?
