    Correct, it is 'PWY.

    Worth repeating this link and reading to learn about the Royal Gull and the adventures it has taken part in (including Loch Ness!).

      The 'Royal Gull' is a Piaggio P.136 amphibian. The Piaggio P.166 is a purely land based twin.

        I am fairly sure that I saw this aircraft fly at Southampton Seawings show in 2000,it's a beauty.

          The rest of the Army Historic flight have now been placed on the UK register.
          Adding to the recent allocation of Scout XT626 as G-CIBW:
          Sioux XT131 becomes G-CICN,
          Beaver XP820 becomes G-CICP,
          Auster AOP.9 XR244 becomes G-CICR,
          Alouette XR379 becomes G-CICS.

            What is the benefit of allocating a civil registration to a plane that is not allowed to fly (Alouette) and was never civil registered in the first place?

              Why wouldn't an Alouette be allowed to fly?

                Are you perhaps confusing this with their Skeeter, which is a type no longer permitted to fly on the U.K. register?

                  Regarding the three wildcat additions to the register, it appears a website for "bygoneengineering" is being constructed: http://www.bygoneengineering.com/

                    Have heard Martin-Baker are in the process of G- ing their two Meteors at the moment, anybody confirm? What with AACHF going G- are we going to see the 'historics' moving off the military books onto the civil register?

                      Ah thanks for correcting me the memory isn't what it used to be. Wonder what happened to PVE?

                        Correct , you did. I still prefer the 166 to the 136 though. Not having the flying boat hull allows for much cleaner lines.

                          You could argue that the Avanti is the pretty daughter of the 166 !

                            Registered on Feb 6th was Bucker Bu181B-1 Bestmann G-CIEZ. This is ex Swedish built D-ECES, which was with Air Classik for many years as a static exhibit on the roof at Frankfurt and Dusseldorf. Probably a restoration project, it's registered to the owner of MS317 G-MOSA and Auster G-AJEE.

                                A few recent items spotted on G-INFO:

                                Tiger Moth G-ANJK (inactive since around 1985) was restored 7-3-14

                                Titan T-51 Mustang G-CIFD is being finished as a 'Razorback' version. Pics in the latest LAA Magazine.

                                BIG news is G-TMPV, a Tempest V ex JN768 registered 13-3-14 to Richard Grace. There's a story behind this ex-maintenance airframe which was recovered from a scrapyard a while ago still wearing some V-I kill markings. A rather exciting prospect.....

                                  It was one of two cockpit structures recovered. One of them was used as a spares source to rebuild the RAFM Tempest II in return for the corroded rear fuselage off the Tempest II.

                                    Strange where the serial came from...Iit is the ex ted Sinclair cockpit (tempest v) and he didn't find the serial and had it for many years!

                                        Well, you need a serial to register a project.............

                                          Do you need provenance as well? As far as I am aware there are very few (if any) specific data plates on a typhoon or tempest....you have to rely on the original scheme or hopefully stencils around from mods done at the makers..
