Forgot to post...

ZZ112 on the ramp at 09:00 this morning with a Houchin next to it. Suspect it'll fly later - probably not on delivery today but perhaps befor the end of the month?

Can't see from here (15 miles to the north), but [43C7E7] "WHE02" SQ4362 is pinging on the deck there at the moment (15:29L), which should make it ZZ112.

OK thanks very much. I waited for 2 hours for it to t/o but it eventually shut down about 1530 ish. Did get a rear view picture but can't quite identify it on my camera. Maybe on the PC.
CHEERS. May go again tomorrow - on holiday from the East of England.

Paul,
If you're looking for confirmation, go onto .ukserials. and compare the masking of the Norwegian serial, on the tail boom, with the photos Phil has lodged there. All will become clear :thumb: .

Believe me, I was there at the same time as Paul.
I personally read it as ZZ112, and it had the individual digits blanked.

ZZ112 showing on ADSB this morning heading north from Yeovil. Seems to have disappeared now. Hoping it might return to Yeovil soon before setting off for home.

ZR285 passed over Ilminster earlier. Can anyone confirm the eventual operator of this airframe please?
