So it would seem!

I confess that I have somewhat warmed to the end result, even though it’s not quite to my geriatric taste. I do however retain some reservations about the overall cost, when cheaper (yes clearly BRITISH) options may have been on the table.

@Archimedes ... thank you for your erudite exposition on the possible origins of Donna and her Ferens..We would have expected no less from you, of course! 👍

If so, presumably BZN will have stocked up with plentiful supplies of Wadpol...

A hosepipe, a bottle of Cif and a floor polisher will do.

I understand from a source in whitehall that this was chosen as the TCAS was US on the aircraft and this was an easier way of ensuring other aircraft see and avoid the "BJ one"....

The airspace over the North Sea is very busy and its difficult to keep up with all the cummings and govings.

If its painted white it is cummings, and if painted yellow, its govings!

Certainly the former. It is a civilian aeroplane anyway. Registration gives that away.
