As the old list (No.6) has exceeded 100 & now too long - here's a new one for you to post all your Military aircraft requests....and I'll action them just as quickly as I can.

Many thanks, Brian

Hi Brian

Rehearsals cancelled, but again no sleep because you are ready already again If I ever create a WHATTAGUY-LIST there's.only gonna be your name on it.

The rework list isn't too long either. One miss, one typo,one alternative try,two justifications and four lost treasures..

Taiwan Air Force

7004 Sikorsky S-70C-1A Bluehawk 700966

7014 Sikorsky S-70C-1A Bluehawk 700958

Taiwan National Airborne Service Corps:

NA-510 UH-1H 17022 (fell through your net)

Royal Thai Air Force :

46158 BT-67 14308/25753 44 mistyped as 56158 (no wonder if you hate the system)

By the way: Are these registrations visible.Whatched a lot of pics. Can't see anything but the codes.

Kh18Kh-21-24 F-5E (90402-91684) TU115 might fit better with my sighting 2004

Royal Thai Border Police:

28064 CN235M-220 N064

33742 Falcon 2000S 742

Turkish Ministry of Health:

TC-AEK Learjet 60XR 60-401

TC-KLC Learjet 60XR 60-395 both carried Republic of Turkey Ministry of Health titles in NUE 2018 (my sighting) as well as 2016/17/19 (photoproof on airliners.net) Titles in English and Turkish on different sides as well as Ambulans/Ambulance

Kuanta Havacilik means Quanta Aviation.and is the operator that was contracted by the Turkish Ministry but they went bust, lost contract and money. That seems to be the reason for the storage of both Learjets in NUE 18/19 at least. Maintenance work wasn't paid.

If any country with a significant military air fleet starting with the letter U came to my mind I would start preparing the list right now. Seems we can go straight to the Vatican. I'll think about it tomorrow. Thank you very much.

Hi Erdni,

So sorry for my silly mistakes on the last list. I was trying to finish it too fast so I can spend time doing my own log...then Geoff threw in his huge Lightning lists!!

NA-510 was in there, but as NA-910 (just to fool you!) as I mixed it up with it's previous reg NFA-910.

46158 has now been corrected.

Your F-5E is Kh18Kh-22/24 (90401) in as Kh18Kh-22-24. It was previously coded 90402 so must be your machine.

My Turkish is not so good these days (I lived there 2008-2012) and I know Kuanta as a construction company so I'm very sorry to doubt your sightings as air ambulance. They've now been corrected.

Now you can start work on Uganda Daks, Uruguay Connies, and any other old stuff with countries starting with 'U' !!

take care.

Kind regards, Brian

Thanks Brian

Ukraine Air Force:

02 yellow An-26 8509

22 blue An-26BUS 11607

01 blue An-74 Ukraine Border Guard ex Ministry of the Interior in DB as Air Force without cn 36547098946

02 blue An-72S 36572096912 Ukraine Border Guard ex Ministry of the Interior

There is an An74 in DB for delivery to Ministry of Internal Affaires in 2009 thats active with all 7 owners in its history, but has no cn. My sighting was years earlier but maybe there is more than one thing worth a second look. (YL-KSA was still active in 2015 for example)

07 blue An-26 7005 Ministry of the Interior

I hope thats enough for the moment. Even too tired for a bloody joke.

All added for you. My apologies for the typo on the previous Global 6000 (now corrected to 14+06).

Kind regards, Brian B

Hi Erdni,

So glad your letter 'U' is short...really looking forward to the Vatican City Pope-mobiles !!

I've sorted out the An-74 you mentioned. Looks like Dennis had a brain fart a couple of years ago and put them all in as the same frame (well he was the last one to update it before me anyway!). Turns out none of them were related and YL-KSA is a duplicate entry anyway (I've put the correct cn against that record). Thanks for pointing it out.

It does appear that your 02 blue was in fact 02 black with the Ministry (if they're very dark blue it always looks black in some light), it later became 02 blue with the Guard.

Take care buddy.

Kind regards, Brian

Hi David,

I've never turned down a request to update anyone's info but I'm afraid yours is the first!

There were 744 B-52's built and it would take me at least a month to get them all into the DB (I know Erdni thinks I'm a a machine but even I have my limits!), which means nobody else would get a chance for their updates (my wife is already complaining I spend too much time on the laptop!).

I will get around to adding some of the earlier models in due course but I'll add the current B-52H fleet, once I've finished the latest batch of requests, so at least you can log your recent sightings. Will let you know once it's done.

Hope you understand.

Kind regards, Brian

Thanks Brian

Everything seems to fit with my sightings.Found a lot of other Ukraine staff I wasn't able to properly identify in 2002 and 2004. I will not molest you with these before i do a research again with the possibilities I got these days. Sorry to say that this was not the whole U-list but you may be pleased to read that the following seemingly manageable list contains the rest of it before we go to the Vatican. Since I started to enjoy your website I am not aware of many if any active Royal Air Force misses in your DB and I realised that many of the U.S. Forces Hercs and Starlifters (even a few B-52`s) I did miss have been added in the last year. Too much work to sort it out at once, even though I am a Machine without wife. Here's only two recent sightings.The rest will come as I find them just like the lost treasure that's starting the list.

Royal Australian Air Force:

A89-272 Lockheed P-2-SP-2H 726-7272 std TSV

A89-280 Lockheed P-2-SP-2H 726-7280 std TSV

German Air Force:

82+01 AS532U2 2449

82+02 AS532U2 2452

82+03 AS532U2 2460

United Arab Emirates Police:

P-558 AB412 ? (airliners.net says Air Force but doesn‘t know a cn)

Royal Air Force:

WF382 Vickers Varsity 541 std near runway at TXL

ZF540 WG-13 Lynx AH-9 332 Army Air Corps

United States Air Force:

04-3142 (RS) C-130J-30 5558

United States Marine Corps:

Maybe you can help identify this Osprey seen in MRS on 25/07/2020 reading

YMM-263 EG 12 (if not EC 12)

Thanks in advance

Hello Brian,

Quick correction regarding C-130 of Kuwait AF https://www.planelogger.com/Airline/Fleet/Kuwait_Air_Force/166590#RegistrationList

All L-100-30 are out of service now (Withdrawn or stored) and all C-130 are KC-130J and not C-130J-30 as mentioned in the DB.

Second update for a french KC35 https://www.planelogger.com/Aircraft/Registration/574(93-CO)/494411

So this KC is a KC-135RG (the C/N is correct, 18557) tail number 574, code 31-CP (and as per my research, never been coded 93-CO) and the registration is F-UKCP.

Thanks for your update :)

Have a lovely day. Paul

Marvelous Brian,

Again in less than 24 hours. Makes me feel bad to see so much effort wasted on a liar like me. I was so happy to give you the good news about the UK and US Forces that I forgot a second look into the UAE and forgot about Uruguay completely. But HERE it is now:

The final list of requests taken out of my 3 publications that deal with active fleets around 2013 and later. I hope I checked well that there is no WXYZ lists necessary.

Ajman Government:

A6-JJJ MD900 c/n 900/00041

Helicopter McDonnell Douglas MD900 Explorer Serial 900/00041 Register OE-XII A6-JJJ N902LH N9213Q 9041 used by Heli Austria GmbH ,UAE Government ,MD Helicopters MDHI ,Politie Luchtvaart Dienst (Dutch Police Aviation) ,US Coast Guard USCG. Built 1996. Aircraft history and location

Dubai Police Wing:

311 M28-05 Skytruck AJE003-08

8901 C295M S123

VN-SAR-02 MI-171 ?

Don't feel too relieved. There will be things, that ran out of service before 2013, preserved staff,hulks and a good number of US staff. Of course I will try to palm off every German Police Helicopter on you, since you gave me all the others. Same goes for the Luxemburg ones after you gave me their complete Navy fleet. In fact I need to stay in close contact to this forum, how else can you inform me about the date you finally come over to pick up your wages. I will continue with construction lists, type by type A-Z. Probably in less than 24 hours because rehearsals tomorrow are canceled again.

Thanks in advance and the most benevolent,complaisant and gracious regards to You and Your better half,

Erdni

Hi David,

The B-52H fleet has now been added. I'll let you know as I gradually get around to adding the rest of the fleet (in stages).

Thanks for your understanding.

Kind regards, Brian

Hi All,

As you may have seen from my response to David, the USAF B-52H fleet has now been added to the database.

I will get around to loading the rest of the fleet (earlier models) in due course but I have other 'clean up' priorities together with your requests. Will keep you posted on progress.

Kind regards, Brian

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the info on the KAF KC-130/L-100's - all now updated.

I've also updated the KC-135RG 574 but it was originally coded '93-CO' at McConnell AFB once it had been converted to a C-135FR prior to dlvy to the FAF. I'm not sure if this was a mistake by the paint team or it didn't last long because it was coded 93-CP soon after.

That's another reason why I never put in the codes as they can change...but the c/s seems to stay the same (in most cases).

Stay safe. Kind regards, Brian

Hi Erdni,

Sorry to hear your rehearsals are cancelled again (what are you rehearsing for...are you a ballet dancer or just trying to be a better spotter? ha ha).

Well...is that your last list (for now?) So sad that's it's come to an end as I did have fun. Unfortunately there's not much info on the Vietnamese stuff except photos...definitely can't find any c/ns anywhere, like you.

Take care buddy & start saving up for my visit next year !

Cheers, Brian

Hi Brian,

Every Wednesday i go to a rehearsal course in careful reading and typing and maybe you should join me. Last list working on 3 publications out of many other ones means the torture goes on.

You‘ll be pleased to know that there is no A list coming from Roy Blewetts Survivors and no request for any C-27J. Only request for a correction could be to bring the construction lists together if this is your resort at all. (Hopefully not)

Most of them are under Alenia G222 serials as 4001-4189 but 8 can be found under Alenia C-27 missing the 4 in front of their serial.

114,116,119,130,131,132,134 and 137

The missing rest most likely could be found under C-27J if they had not a / included in their regs.

Example

MM62214/46-84 C-27J- 4113

Lucky you, this is not a request.Just a hint.

Thanks for the latest additions.(Unfortunately not the last)

Erdni

I forgot about the typo: You put 311 under viTEnam PAF instead of viETnam.

Hi Erdni,

I think I have to join your for your class 7 days per week due to the number of silly typo's I keep making lately!!

I have corrected the new Asian Air Arm I created in "Vitenam". I have also updated the complete G-222/C-27 production list (all 198 of them apart from the 2/3 frames never finished). I have sent a message to Gavin, our webmaster, as, for some reason, I can't access a complete list of the C-27J Spartan's, but can on the G-222! Hopefully he'll fix it really soon.

Take care my friend.

Thanks a lot, Brian

Don't upset your better half by wasting even more time visiting stupid courses. As long as I do your proofreading, everything should be o.k. for the DB. This is what i prepared over the weekend:

Lost treasure:

New Zealand Coast Guard:

ZK-SAR Cessna 182T Skylane 18282277
A new aircraft for the CoastGuard registered April 2011. Previously registered N90844 (airliners.net) AMZ 2011

Uruguayan Air Force:

051 H-1 Huey (not 100 % sure with the type) 052/53/54….. were active Hueys according to my book. 051 is not in, so it likely was wfu or worse in 2013 MVD 1999

Construction lists:

ATR42/72: Didn‘t really check.Can‘t remember missing anything military in DB

Transall;

cn 47 has got a typo in a rare civil registration for that type:

F-BUFQ is mistyped as F-BUWQ and it was operated by Air France (Poste) not by the Venezuelan Airline Aeropostale and certainly not AeroSpostale (French AF before and after to make you feel responsible)

cn 50 is missing completely F-RAMV.F-WUFS,F-BUFS (well, ex French AF)

cn 52 is missing completely F-RAMX (no justification necessary)

cn 233 is missing completely F-WDQK,PK-PTO,PK-VTR (can‘t think of no justification but the plane was meant to be a MILITARY transport and I say please,please,please!!!

Obviously the order in the construction list is completely out of order but this is hopefully not yours to fix.

Thanks in advance

Erdni

Hello Brian, it's very quiet on my side those days, no trip planed so you should have time to update your own log ;-) (well if Geoff and Erin slow down ahahahah) Anyway, 2 small additions on my side.

  1. 93-2041, C-130H-3, cn 382-5370, USAF
  2. CSX619, Aermacchi M-311, cn 201, Aermacchi

I have also an creation/update before the information get lost.

  1. 165507 E2C Hawkeye, code AJ-604, US Navy This plane arrived this last 05 september in Cuers Pierrefeu (France) to be "cannibalize" to take spare parts for french E2C's. I really doubt that this plane will fly again.

Thanks a lot. Paul

Hi Steve T,

Glad you're gradually working your way through your log.

I'm still in 1976 and haven't managed to do any of mine for months with all the additions coming in so am just adding my sightings from everyone's requests at the moment.

I'm trying to 'clean up' the DB as much as possible (it was in such a mess with numerous people entering records in different ways over the years) so I'm trying to standardise the types and for the past 2 weeks have been working on the C-135 but am still only half-way through!

Stay safe!

Kind regards, Brian

Hi Erdni,

I've added your last list (including the civil C-160NG) so that's another pint you owe me (ha ha!). I've also added all the FAU UH-1H's (be careful with '052' as one was active and one is in a museum with a 'fake' reg - never was with FAU - ex US Army UH-1V); I'm pretty sure you saw the real one though!

I'll get around to sorting out the mess with the C-160 c/ns when I have a couple of hours free tomorrow afternoon, before I tackle Geoff's huge list.

Take care buddy,

Cheers, Brian

Posted by erdni on 14 September 2020 - 20:36:34

Thanks Brian

In fact it's three pints less for Dennis added to you, I never saw the two Air Frances in their military careers. Need to go to Balma and Cazaux before winter to safe me some Euros. On the other hand what follows is the hardest list you ever got from me, so it probably will ruin me financially anyway.

390 Mi-8T 0223 ex NVA (East German Air Force) preserved EDAM

WL626 Vickers Varsity preserved Aeropark EMA

Hard to understand that there is no info on the cn anywhere. A British plane flying for the RAF, probably built in your neighborhood and preserved for years in a public museum?!?

Must have been John Profumos flying love nest, financed by the KGB or something.

I can only see four options for You.

1.You've been the keeper of the secret for years now.

2.You find out about the other 162 Varsities and so get to this last missing one.

3 You imagine a cn and live with the bad conscience for the rest of your life or

4.You hit the M1 tonight and cut this plane into pieces until you find the info you need.

Hope you sleep well after your return.

No chance for my logging yet. Got lots of requests to keep me busy plus lots of 'clean-ups' to do on the DB and loads of fleets to add all before I get back to my own list (still stuck in 1976!!).

Thanks for the update on the Hawkeye, this and your others have been completed.

Take care.

Hi Geoff,

Finally got around to completing your large list. Some nice machines in there...especially the B-66's!

I remember seeing some of the JP's in Staravia's scrapyard at Lasham but have unfortunately lost some of my early logbooks from the 70's and am relying on a friends' sighting when I knew I was with him.

Kind regards, Brian

Hi Erdni,

Your huge list has now been completed (ha ha).

No chance of me heading up the M1 with my blowtorch to find your Varsity c/n as too busy with funerals. I haven't even found time to get to Lakenheath or Marham to see the AV F-16's or USMC F-35B's! As you say, nothing on the museum website or even the CAA Register (for G-BHDD) except for 'WL626'. I'm sure they never used their s/n for a c/n so I guess this one will have to be lost to the Chinese wiping out the computer system that housed the real record!!

Stay safe buddy.

Thank you Brian, I know you did what was possible.

I wish I could say the same about me but as usual I can't. Tried to work on another construction list or just rework a KDMA visit in 2016 but all I did was a final search in my current logging book starting december 2019 and all I found are lousy police helicopters, mainly from the country I didn't dare to ask for until now:

D-HVBA Eurocopter EC135 0145  Bundesgrenzschutz (Federal Border Patrol) Sep 2000

now D-HVBA Eurocopter EC135  Bundespolizei (Federal Police) Jul 2005

D-HVBE Eurocopter EC135 0152  Bundesgrenzschutz (Federal Border Patrol) Feb 2001

now D-HVBE Eurocopter EC135  Bundespolizei (Federal Police) Jul 2005

D-HPNA MD Helicopters MD 902 Explorer 900-00059 Police Lower Saxony (Polizei Niedersachsen)

D-HBPG Eurocopter EC135 0902 Police Bavaria (Polizei Bayern) May 2010 Test Registration D-HCBT

D-HBPC Eurocopter EC135 0870 Police Bavaria (Polizei Bayern) March 2010 Test Registration D-HTSG

D-HBWW H145 20065 Police Baden Wuerttemberg (Polizei Baden Wuerttemberg)

There is already a historic Bo105 D-HBWH (D-HBOA) in the DB to be found under POLIZEIHUBSCHRAUBERSTAFFEL BADEN-WÜRTTEMBERG

North Rhine-Westphalia, where I live in the Federal Republic of Germany has got 13 active airframes in the DB under LANDESPOLIZEI NORDRHEIN-WESTFALEN without any English translation. (Just a description of the situation, not an influence)

If your clearing this mess by ignoring the list as civvy I've got an understanding but must otherwise mention that Dennis added more ex USAF C-130s,C-47s and Beech 18s for me already than...I'd rather stop this sentence here before somebody who used to call me Buddy smells a try of blackmailing him.

What about these two?;

F-MJCU AS350BA 2117 Gendarmerie Nationale

XM478 (I-PROV) Hunting P-84 Jet Provost T3A  PAC/W/9286 now at the museum at MXP

P.S: I can't wait to log a new Transall. Their construction list is the closest to perfect in the whole DB since you fixed it. (Honey around your mouth...I try every trick in the book)

Anyway thanks in advance and shame on me

Hi Erdni,

I think you are playing games with me & Dennis - getting him to add C-130s, C-47s etc., and me civvy helicopters (ha ha!)

Please don't rush to send me your KDMA 2016 sightings. I still have to put my logs from my trips in 08.10.1977; 12.9.1988; 02.12.1992; 05.12.1994; 30.4.2002; 20.3.2011 and 26.3.2016 into the DB but i'lll probably be dead before I finish them !!

Hi Brian

Thanks for working on my list despite your suspicion of me playing games. Wouldn't it be stupid to play with people who can change the rules anytime they want to or even worse just quit? I never asked Dennis to add any military sighting of mine but since your DB is close to complete for common civil airliners. even Tupolevs and IL18 and IL62s it's mainly ex military transports who are civvys for 1 to 8 decades now he adds for me with their complete history.

I'd like to put that load on you for even quicker results I also wish I had someone for choppers, one for Bizjets, ten for ultra light aircraft and Hot Air Balloons.Well I haven't. I just try to put as many into the DB as I can before you are helping your friend on my funeral. You are welcome to refuse requests. Next request:

Please add everything to the DB you've spotted in KDMA in march 2016. I've been there in February so it looks like a win win situation project. (Not in a game)

In case of your likely refusal here is an alternative list:

ZS-RDJ AS350B2 2648 South Africa Police (bad start, I know)

 this helicopter was previously F-WYMC and (F-GMPA) before taking up her South African marks.

Still I hang my head in shame and say thank you very much in advance

Hi All,

Ever since I volunteered to edit the military a/c side of this DB on 03-Nov-19, it has been my intention to 'clean up' the mess that was the C-135 fleet. Many of the records had not been updated since their creation back in 2014 (when they were put in as 707/KC-135-CA !!

I'm pleased to say this task has now been completed.

Although you'll still see them as those pesky 'KC-A' in your records (if you've entered them before my massive clean up) the fleet list does reflect their true, current, type.

For the purist amongst you, there are 2 ways to correct this:

  1. Either go into 'My Sightings', enter the s/n into the search field, and once your sighting shows select 'edit' which brings up your record of type, place, date, notes. You can then amend the type to something that you wish (don't worry, it will not affect the master record as this is just your sighting). I often use this method to change them to KC-135A, E's, R's as I see them in various guises).

  2. As above but instead of selecting 'edit' hit the 'delete' button. This will remove the entry from your log completely. You can now go back into the DB, search for the s/n as normal and re-enter the sighting. It'll now show on your sightings as the current type.

Both of these transactions are long-winded, so only start if you really want to have a more accurate record and mean to continue!!

If you were not aware of this 'edit' function, you can do it on any/all of your sightings. I often use it to add notes etc., to something already logged.

My next 'clean up' projects will focus on the USAF/USN T-39 Sabreliner, followed by the C-12 Huron and then I'll get around to entering all the missing C-130H's & J's from the DB. I'll keep you posted as to my progress on each one.

In the meantime I'll make a start to catch-up on your recent requests.

Kindest regards, Brian

Your list of 18th September has now been added. sorry the for silly mistake on VZ438 showing it still as 'active'!

Thanks also for the Lasham list. I've printed it off and will get around to adding them all in the DB in the near future.

Hi Erdni,

I don't mind entering ex mil a/c that have been civil for years, and I'm sure Dennis won't mind me taking some of the workload off him (I'm surprised he hasn't told me off for entering all your civvy police choppers ha ha !)

Unfortunately I failed your latest test. The SAAF never operated any type of Bell so the one you saw at Rand I'm guessing is either a civvy job (several companies based there have them) or perhaps one of the new Heli-med machines (Bell 222UT) that I haven't seen with a code yet.

Sorry for this one that's got away. I'm sure you'll punish me with a new (even tougher) list !

Kind regards, Brian

Hi Brian

Thanks a lot again. You know I'm more than delighted by the work of You and Dennis.

The following list is from the road and only covers the last 2 days. Just six hours ago i was happily convinced that I could proudly offer you a truly military set of regs and then the unbelievable happened. Minutes after our arrival in HAM a squadron of 9 (NINE) Police Helicopters from all over Germany came into land at once. There was either a party or an educational thing going on. Two Hamburg Choppers were parked anyway.Only the one from NRW was already in the DB. Believe me, I've got a lot of fantasy but not enough to make this one up.

It starts with EDAM:

670 MiG-21MF 966206 ex East German Air Force now Luftfahrt- und Technik-Museumspark

829 MiG-21SPS 94A4705 Luftfahrt- und Technik-Museumspark

725 MiG-21SPS 94A4212 Luftfahrt- und Technik-Museumspark

673 MiG-21MF 966207 ex East German Air Force now Luftfahrt- und Technik-Museumspark

3065 IL-14P 14803065 Luftfahrt- und Technik-Museumspark ex Polish Air Force in DB without cn

21+56 F-104G 683-7025 Luftfahrt- und Technik-Museumspark

EB-368 RF-84F Thunderflash ? Luftfahrt- und Technik-Museumspark

75+86 SE.3130 Alouette II 1511 Luftfahrt- und Technik-Museumspark

A-16 SE.3130 Alouette II 1595 ex Belgian Army now Luftfahrt- und Technik-Museumspark

24+54 F-104G 683-8202 Luftfahrt- und Technik-Museumspark

HAM:

D-HSAT BK-117B 7233 Polizei Sachsen-Anhalt (Saxony-Anhalt Police)

D-HSAA H145 20124 Polizei Sachsen-Anhalt (Saxony-Anhalt Police)

D-HBPE Eurocopter EC135P 0891 Police Bavaria (Polizei Bayern) 

D-HTHC EC145 9117 Polizei Thüringen (Thuringia Police)

D-HONE EC135P2 0338 Polizei Hamburg (Hamburg Police)

D-HTWO EC135P2 0343 Polizei Hamburg (Hamburg Police)

D-HLTL EC-155B 6599 Bundespolizei (Federal Police)

D-HBBZ EC-135P2 0269 Polizei Berlin (Berlin Police)

D-HVBX EC-135T2 0349 Bundespolizei (Federal Police)

D-HSNE EC-135T2 1061 Polizei Sachsen (Saxony Police)

The SAAF from the last list might as well not have been a BELL. It might have been a wild guess.( Curious notice)

Here is todays mystery:

601 ex Eastern Germany Air Force std in DRS? ? My guess:MiG-21

If everything works well, the next Police Helicopters come from Denmark and Sweden.

Thanks in advance

Erdni

HI Erdni,

Your latest list has been completed. I still can't find any helicopter in South Africa with a code similar to the one you posted (nearest I can find is a KA-32 in Portugal (CS-HML) with a code of 'H-08' so it's def not that one!

You were close with your MiG at DRS...it's a MiG-23ML... and now in the DB for you (601).

Take care.

Kind regards, Brian

Can't recall seeing any Scimitars other than in scrap heaps or museums so nice to see someone saw a few in operation! All added for you.

Hi Brian,

Many thanks for the additions. The Scimitars were regular participants at airshows up until their withdrawal from front line RN squadrons in 1966, after which Buccaneers joined the Sea Vixens to represent the RN at displays, but the Scimitars soldiered on into the 1970s with Airwork Fleet Requirements Unit. I think the early 1960s was a great time for the hobby, especially with having a dad, and mates' dads, willing to take us to the shows. Anyway, enough of the nostalgia, a few more additions please, this time from the 1980s in Hong Kong:

Thanks Brian

News from the last 48 hours:

HAD gate guard is 32127 SAAB 32 Lansen 14 P

29969 S-29C Tunnan 29969 VST outside (not looking too good) 16

The rest is mystery:

Who is coded 2 (small FARA titles) outside ESCF Malmen museum.(Not the Canberra 02)

Who is coded 10 inside the F11 museum (A fighter, not another Glider)

Who is on a pole as a gate guard for Ängelholm Aviation museum coded 35 10 (Guess it's a Draken)

Which Sk60 is lying around in HAD coded 5

SE-LXM Yak-52 833203 ( Owner: Mattias Nyberg) was photographed in Russian Air Force cs in 2005 (airliners.net). Are you feeling responsible to add it?

IF so,is it the same with LY-HLZ Yak-52 833206 ex ES-XYM,RA-44498,LN-HAC

Where are the Swedish Police Helicopters? To check us in HAD they came by car. Very friendly, I have to say.

Thanks in advance,

Erdni

Hi Erdni,

I've added most of your request with a couple that I'm not sure of...

I have 32127 being scrapped at Soderhamn (SOO) 06/1991 so not sure which one you saw at Halmstad (HAD). 32530 is coded '14' but is at the F15 Museum in SOO (06/1998 to 08/2017) so I'm not sure if it's this one (I doubt it);

The a/c coded '2' at Malmen is 39-2 (ex Saab JAS-39 test machine) The a/c pole mounted at Angelholm (AGH) is J-35F 35409 coded '35'

I can't find anything coded '10' at the F11 Museum at Nykoping. I've loaded the entire museum fleet and the nearest is S-35E 35916 coded '16' ?

Again, I can't find any Sk60 at Halmstad.

I'll keep looking once I finish all this weeks' update requests.

Kindest regards, Brian

MISTAKE SORRY I COPIED IT INTO No.8 ALREADY

Thanks Brian,

don‘t put too much efforts into the solutions to my problems. I already have no idea where in the net I found the info about 32127. I‘m sure it was in some Scandinavian hotel room at night after a couple of self-imported cans of German beer. I noted in Halmstad that the small reg on the plane looked like ending on ...54

F11 museum was closed because of Covid 19, so we only could see through the windows. I noticed that many of the planes in Sweden had one number on tail and another one near the cockpit. I went through the great webside of the museum myself and could not find a clue.

So here is the final list for that trip plus lost treasure from 2011:
