1230L Monday.
A bit late but roadrunner bagged up AW class heli noted A303 eastbound towards Andover on lowloader. Unable to claim exact type but well wrapped.

Not sure if from Yeovil or whether it's a second hand sale from elsewhere.

Quite possibly the AW149 being roaded to London for DSEI

On the ramp this morning were :
ZZ513 Wildcat (this usually flies with Mode S turned off for some reason, so may be your WHE02)
ZZ415 Widcat
ZR285 Merlin for Poland
[497CC0] (the Portugese Lynx) is currently pinging as "WHE02", but I don't think it's airborne, just on a ground test.

The S76 wasn't there when I was. And TBH if it's civil I probably wouldn't have tried too hard to read it off either.

I think you misheard. 2-BYDF was re-registered as M-LIFT back in June. Perhaps you heard MIKE FOXTROT TANGO rather than FIFE FOXTROT TANGO?

Of course, it's civil so you probably tuned it out anyway!
I should probably change my name to EGCC again.

ZH831 was the only thing on the ramp this morning at 9AM. I didn't notice if it still had it's bin bag attached.

Oh - and talking of bin bags, if anyone is thinking of visiting - don't do it before 9AM on a Tuesday. Bin day and local school traffic means it's chaos.

A RN Merlin coded 'AC' was the only thing outside at 1330. Could someone please confirm this was ZJ994? Many thanks.
