Wonder if anyone can help answer a question for me, While looking through this months 'Rotor & Wing' I found a picture of a Bond helicopter that appeared to have two registrations on it at the same time.
A French 'F' reg on the engine cowls and a British 'G' reg on the body of the craft. Was just interested in how an aircraft can be on both countries registers at once. Sorry if this is a silly question just never come across it before.
When an aircraft is wheeled off the assembly line it is put on F-reg. 'trade plates' for test flying. To save time it will also have the customized paint job, including final registration, but this will be obscured until the keys are handed over. When the customer signs the cheque, 'hey presto' the registration changes from F- to G- (or whatever).
