Hi,

Likely to be ZH590 as it has eurofighter markings on the side and appears to be a twin stick, no sign of the tail.

So, Duxford is getting 590, interesting.

The American crash Tiffie was reported back at Coningsby on PPRUNE earlier this month. Photographed on a lowloader covered in green tarp heading towards the HAS complex.

Oh and the wings are at Brize apparently.

Serial ZJ943.

Yes Andy (Boff180) posted a cracking shot of it hanging from the ceiling last year.

Will be making a visit down there myself, because I don't actually have this one.

Missed it when it went into CBY.
