Many many years ago we got a pair of L-39's, first in the UK and while we were prepping one outside for paint, we marked it up with a Vatican reg to confuse all the spotters at the fence where it was visible... sorry, our idea of a larf at the time :)

You bad boy Tony, we were all spotters once upon a time!

Your link Kervyn refers to June 9th and my time machine is not working.

Come in Avion!

Well done Etienne and thanks for your time and effort. HV-TSWN is as the photo credit records, a registration used for film purposes only, but good try! The real aircraft is actually G-CLPR which had a nasty landing accident in 2009 at Goodwood airfield. The aircraft was then sold in the US as N396KT and is now out of service. The c/n is a mystery as the real c/n is 12675 and not 101 as reported by Airport-Data.
