Ukmil might be able to confirm, but it'll be going to 6 sqn after acceptance presumably.

It was stated by ukmil in a couple of other threads on FC that ZK380 is (or was) to be 6 sqn's first twin seater.

Found this on tut tinternet:
http://fox2e-mag.blogspot.com/2010/11/e ... er_14.html

And for non-native Greek speakers, a dodgy babelfish translation: ;)
According to the magazine AirForces Monthly, the Oman bought already fighting planes of type Eurofighter from the Britain. According to the same magazine, on 18 October it flew first Eurofighter ZK380 (BT025) the Oman, with number of line of OT001. Up to today does not exist official confirmation for the supply of Eurofighter from the Oman. Previous April, the Prime Minister of Britain, [Gkornton] Brown, had reported that the Oman draws is supplied fighting Eurofighter Typhoon. The parcel, according to what saw the light of publicity up to today, concerns the supply of 24 fighting press, value of 2,24 billions of dollars.
Interesting that ZK380 is listed as a "Typhoon T" rather than a T3 on ukserials.

F/F 18/10/10 in RAF Markings if you have any issues with wanting to prove it take it up in the Warton section I'm sure someone there will confirm it.
