I can correct your types. They are Beech 350s (NOT 200s)

To be precise the Beech 250 and 350 models are marketing names for model B200 and B300C respectively, they are registered as Hawker Beechcraft B200 and B300C models.

G-LBSB was transferred to UK military registry on 15th May 2018
G-DAYP & G-GMAD remain on the UK civil register
G-DAYM appears not to heave been registered as yet.

Hope this helps.

Only ZZ507 has re appeared so far, in the executive shadow scheme.

419 is in the Exec scheme also, and i believe is currently at Hawarden.

507, 416 and 418 are operating at Waddington at present. If you search the regs in heads up you should get a rough idea where the others are if you need .

ZZ504 has just returned from Bournemouth, it's in the circuit at waddington.

Can't see it some unsure if grey or exec scheme, hopefully see it tomorrow....

My log at present is:

ZZ416 Active 27.5.20.
ZZ417 at Bournemouth.
ZZ418 Active 27.5.20.
ZZ419 to Hawarden 14.5.20.
ZZ504 from Bournemouth 28.5.20.
ZZ507 Active 28.5.20.

I have seen DAYP and GMAD at Waddington sometime ago but not DAYM.

Cant remember how long ago they left.

I can't find any info re DAYM/ZZ508, where is this info from?

Mike

Many thanks on the updates
As the Sentinel's had been reviewed,it was worth doing the Shadow's
Over a year ago G-DAYM/ZZ508 was around,I can't remember where the info came from

I will keep looking

Pete,

G-DAYM has never been issued by the CAA (see their G-INFO website) and ZZ508 is not listed on Wolverhampton Aviation Group's "ukserials.com" website, nor the ELAS "British Armed Services Review 2020" issued to all LAAS members. Seems to me therefore that it has never existed (at least, not yet).

ZZ508 has been referenced here: https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/ ... clnk&gl=uk

Again noted as ZZ508/G-DAYM.

As for its accuracy...

I believe the fleet will eventually be 8 Shadows once the remaining two have been converted

Thought the fleet had a new member when I spotted a B350 with large under belly pod working orbits over Grimsby at 17.30 on 26th May.
ADS-B soon identified it as Diamond Aviation's B350ER 2-WKTJ, it went rtb Gamston just after 18.00
Interestingly it has been employed off Libya :ninja:

Think ZZ416 calling Snake 46 might have just had an issue, was with Touch for a T&G but didnt go.
Tower asked if there was an issue, didn't hear a response as they were using VHF, but heard later emergency vehicles were following.
