Helpful as ever Pen Pusher, Phil did say there would be an updated list when people returned from Easter.

Here's what i can get from it all:

Chipmunk T10 RAF Red/White 1970s livery
Chipmunk T.10 Army Camo
Tucano T.1 72Sqn Centenary camo livery (ZF378)
Pilatus PC-6 Turbo Porter

Bulldog T.1
Pembroke CC.1


Was mention of a Merlin and French alpha jet earlier in the thread as well



Which if you read back, have pulled out.


Just read back through.Not seeing any mention of the Merlin or the French alpha jet pulling out, just the Belgian alpha jets

The Merlin HMA2 was from 829NAS which I believe has now disbanded as of 31st March. We are awaiting confirmation that 824 NAS will pick up the task.

Thank you Phil for the email :up:

In the email there is the following line - “It is planned to have - subject to operational requirements”

And then it is blank underneath...was there something meant to be there or am I being stupid? :lol:

That sentence should have been deleted. I was hoping to have had confirmation of attendance of some other items that have been invited before the joining instructions went out but we probably not hear until tomorrow now. We are just as frustrated as you are......!

Yes!! Excellent addition.

Phil - if it lands early in the day, run out and disable it somehow, so that it has to stay for the evening :)

Is it scheduled to ground run at all?

Anyone got a number for the Kenyan Embassy? Would be lovely if their Fokker 70 could be wheeled over for the shoot if it's still around :whistle:

Hi Phil.

So is that the case for both Meteors then? If so that is a massive shame as this was the biggest highlight for me :sad:

Is there any actual list of what can be expected at the evening-shoot? The email literally had nothing

I see French Army PC-6 No. 891 has arrived not long ago as FMY8949, very nice to see one of these back if it is indeed staying for the shoot.

Tucano ZF378 has also arrived as Export 1. The Kenyan AF Fk70 KAF308 has sadly been towed out of view Northside.

Ahh yes, guess I'd better make the 2 hour drag round the M25 then.

One to add appears to be French Navy Xingu No. 078/YE which is just about to arrive as FNY5028

Along with possibly Polish AF Casa 017, inbound as PLF038?

Think the. Case just landed
I know you think you understood what I said, but I'm not sure you realise that what I said is not what I meant.
