Just trying to tidy up some loose ends from Cosford Air Show, Sunday, June 17th.
Firstly did anybody get a positive ID on the display Apache?
I got within 50 yds. or so and still couldn’t make it out, even with binoculars!
You need perfect light and damn good eyesight for these - the most irritating type I can think of to ID.
Secondly, there were two dk. green A109s parked by the crowdline at the railway end.
One was the Belgian display aircraft, H-24, and the other was presumably the reserve, but what was it?
Next the Blades.
Three of them were ZXCL; ZXEL; & ZEXL, but there’s ‘a friendly dispute’ about the fourth.
Any positive ID?
Two of the Aerostars YAKs were def. HAMM & JYAK; two others were prob. CBPM & GYAK.
Any confirmation of these two and ID for the fifth?
Finally, the Great War Air Team website says they have three SE5s, but there were only two displaying.
Does anybody know which two?
I’ve got a fairly comprehensive list of everything displaying, in static, and on the flightline, (may have missed the odd one and didn’t fight my way into the museum), so I’ll try to answer queries if anybody needs.
