My last type was the Agusta Westland (now Leonardo) A109LUH - wife bought me '109LUH' for my last birthday.

Im greedy so I kept it hoping Phil Meeson or Steve Heapy might want it. Anyone friends with them ?
Itíd certainly look good on PMís 15 year old Focus!

An old nag?

There's currently a very nice white Range Rover sporting HOR 5 E.
Jockey, trainer, who knows.

Someone at a local flying club fitted his Jag with the “almost, but not quite” plate D1 LOT. He put in a black nylon attachment bolt below the “D”, so that it almost looked like a “P”.

Unknown to him, someone at the club got out a roll of black tape...when he drove off the rear plate had been changed to read “P1LOCK”.

Sitting in the crew room reading Exchange and Mart around 1974 I saw 111 ACE advertised for £100 (on a moped, as I think you had to actually buy the vehicle at that time). I did think of buying it and then ringing 111 up (at Wattisham I think) and seeing what offers I could get, but of course I never did. I wonder where that one ended up.

When I was doing my air traffic training at Shawbury in '83, one of my fellow trainees had the number plate ending in RAF.

But he was RN!

No aviation connection, but I sold my fully serviceable moped with LCH231 years ago for £15. It was later fitted to a VW Beetle and now resides on a SAAB 9-3. I’ve often wondered how much it changed hands for.

Remember seeing HI 2 ATC westbound on the M27 a few years ago, and again in the SRG Gatwick car park.

An Engineering Officer I knew bought the plates J3NGO and S3NGO. When he was still a J Eng O and turned up to work in the S3NGO his S Eng O wasn't very happy.

Any pilot Iíve known who has an aviation related number plate is normally the sort of chap who should really have WAN K3R
because they normally are.
