Hi Brian

Thanks a million for that.

Two were already listed - 2M-0.02 and 5M-0.05 so these are now duped (one as Buran and the other as Buran-Spacecraft).

shall I delete my log against them so you can delete the dupes?

Also 2M-0.02 did carry the registration CCCP-3501002, it actually did fly. Should that registration be allocated against it too?

Thanks

Hi Dougie,

I can't seem them duped. I've checked by 'registration' and under the airline 'Soviet Union' and can only see Buran-Spacecraft listed).

I pulled up the two original Buran records and amended them accordingly, and I've also added the civil reg before it went to the museum for you.

Perhaps if you delete your sightings against the 'Buran' and then search for the reg's and put them in against the 'Buran-Spacecraft' that may clear it up.

I've noticed when I see my sightings against a record entered as '707-KC-A' that I've amended in the DB to read KC-135A etc., it still shows as 707 KC-A in my listing, but you can edit the type when you go in and edit your record. I guess the system keeps it as what it was when you first put your sighting against it!

Kind regards, Brian
