It all depends on whether the flight is pre or post sale. I very much doubt that it is pre sale, and post sale, it would be difficult to argue that the aircraft meets the UK ANO dispensation for military aircraft; no ANO dispensation, can't be on the Mil register, can't be under the MAAs regulation.
