Didn't realise they were getting rid of these so quick.

Last i heard from someone on 45 squadron they were around for another year before being fulling replaced by the Phenom.

The remaining 4 King Airs have returned to their previous UK civil registrations ( G-RAFD, G-RAFO, G-RAFP & G-RAFU) in the last couple of days according to G info.
