From memory it was on a more westerly spot in the pm to the am, so it may have flown lunch-timeish. Do you have a time, Giubo?
ZZ514 also flew this am and ZH843 flew late afternoon on ZH864's return.

RadarBox has no record of ZZ112 flying yesterday. I don't think it would have flown from a westerly spot.

Thanks Merlin. In addition to your list, Boscombe Down based H.125 G-ETPG made a low approach into the hover at the western end of the field at around 15.40, but only stayed a minute or two, without landing as far as I could see. I couldn't read the Wildcat on the Compass Base.
