Phenom ZM334

Post by knutt » Thu Feb 18, 2021 7:34 pm

Just seen on G-INFO that ZM334 was registered as G-MEPS on 05/02/2021. Not sure of the reason why.

Don't believe it's flown since mid September.

Last active 3 days ago on the ground according to ads.

Whilst on the subject, ZM333 hasn't been noted since about October. Is this on maintenance or perhaps will go the same way as 334 ? Any knowledge out there on 333 ? Thank you

bear in mind that ZM334 was originally G-MEPS with Affinity back in 2017 before hand over to RAF - G-MEPS(2) also with Affinity. I wonder if it might be some upgrade or paperwork exercise to keep the aircraft to "civil standards" and will in due course revert to ZM334.

Time will tell.

Has anybody MK1 eyeball to say if the aircraft is marked G-MEPS, could simply be the the transponder pinging the civil reg ?

1500L: "Golf Mike Echo Papa Sierra" 118.780 > 123.775

Inbound Belfast by the looks of it, not a military crew.
I should probably change my name to EGCC again.

Heading to EMBRAER facility at Fort Lauderdale for servicing. Civvie reg for ease of transit since it's not technically a state aircraft.

Regarding the last comment about heading to the US for servicing or maintenance, unless I'm missing something, I wouldn't say that's a good use of taxpayers money. I realise that they are on a contract, but surely on economic grounds, this task could have been performed at one of the UK locations?

Surely it has nothing to with taxpayer's money? The aircraft is not owned by the RAF.

Back on to the subject of Phenom ZM333 & answering my own question, '333 was showing today (27/04) on ADSB on the ground with "ENG" as the c/s. so presumably has been on maintenance with Engineering these past few months. So hopefully back active again soon.
