Well, new month and just gone past the window inbound is a RN HM1/2 Merlin. Not showing on SBS so may (or may not!) be the next one in for upgrade.

Thursday June 5th 09:00L
Out on a sunny but windy ramp this morning were :

ZZ400 Wildcat AH1 Green c/s
ZH835 Merlin HM1 Stored behind mound
ZH840 Merlin HM2
[43C47F] (ZR353?) Merlin primer c/s (for Italy) - flying 12:00L
(ZR334?/HMH-1?) Merlin White c/s for Saudi - flying 11:00L

Couldn't read the two foreign Merlins coz they were tail on, but most likely candidates are as shown.

Oh, plus A-189 G-AWCK for those deviants that colect Spam

10:35 [43C710] Squirrel (ZJ253) "AAC710" just gone past the window inbound

Cheers

Was this 100% read off, or assumed from SBS?

Err - only seen I-AWCK (I think - don't do spam) today. ICAO hex 000400 seems common here for spuirious spam AW1x9 types.
