Correct. Apologies typo on my initial post, I’m at Coningsby now and watched him depart - checked camera and it is ZK367 (Squadron leader R D Print markings under cockpit)

Presume ZK367 from earlier still carries 41 Sqn code "EB-R"..or has it succumbed to last 3 like the rest of them?

Went to Aberporth Range, believed to have jettisoned an unidentified store from stbd wing inboard pylon. Departed with 2 under each wing apparently, and recovered via SRA with just one under port wing, plus centreline camera pod. Same store(s) carried last Thurs (28/5) also to Aberporth range but sortie flown by the other Warton TP "WTN10". Also what looked like ASRAAMs were on each outer pylon (ITSPLs), as per last thurs.

Also thanks from me too - I'm always very interested to know what is going on at Warton. Several years since I've visited and had a tour, so would otherwise be very well out-of-date on Typhoon and other 'happenings' - please continue the good work.
