Shadow 22/06/16

Good evening all.

Is anyone please able to confirm that the Shadow which departed Brize around 08:40 this morning was visually confirmed as ZZ504?

Thanks in advance and apologies for another question.

Kind regards,

Andy

Pawlee, thank you very much for your response.

I'd seen it reported as ZZ504 but I'm just cautious that this was taken from SBS and never actually eyeballed. As it's my last one and just for my peace of mind, I thought I'd ask the question and see if anyone had managed to read it off. Call me old fashioned but I'm always a little dubious with SBS serials.

Thanks again and kind regards,

Don't know if this helps but whenever I have seen these at Farnborough the callsign had always corresponded with the serial.

For example ZZ417 serpent47
ZZ504 serpent 54 , ZZ418 Snake48 etc
