Indeed in terms of brand new "factory fresh" jets (with BS155 already flown twice), but as always never straightforward...
ZK350 (BS111) & ZK370 (BS131) although on paper handed over both were retained at Warton for trials/development use. These have never been "delivered" to Coningsby but eventually may do so.
Obviously 41 TES have 3 jets based at Warton (BT017/BS116/BS117) for joint trials use with BAES.

I find it interesting that the "last" RAF Typhoon off the line (ZK439) has flown twice since rolling out but we haven't seen anything out of ZK437... which you think would have flown AND delivered by now... or did I completely miss the activities of 437?

Cheers

They delivered the last Tranche 2 ZK354 before ZK352 so none seem to go out in sequence anymore.

Aside from that, 439 flew its third and fourth flights Monday and Tuesday. Going on the time it took to deliver 438, 439 might not be going anytime soon after a trip to the paintshop

Tombs should have clarified , as usual mistakes can be made, but I meant two left to complete the RAF order.
