      Certainly seems so with what is publicly visible, 25.5 hrs in the space of 8 days, at that rate they would burn through 1,200 hrs in a year.

      • Any progress with the other 3?
        German 1: Private Schnutz, I have bad news for you.
        German 2: Private? I am a general!

          In the last 2 weeks N280NG & N282NG have being up flying; both seem to have being performing some acceptance tests looking at the flight profiles flown. If N281NG does the same this week it might mean we will get to see them soon. Pure speculation of course.

            • But were they not already painted? And why is there snow on the ground in August? On the photographers page, that photo is date stamped 12th March 2020.

                    • Will they figure out the numbers by the time they get here?

                      • Ill be honest I hope they don't change the livery to much and add a back and white subdued roundel instead as they look so nice and clean right now.

                        • Would they be Air Corps pilots collecting them, or commercial pilots?
                          'He died who loved to live,' they'll say,
                          'Unselfishly so we might have today!'
                          Like hell! He fought because he had to fight;
                          He died that's all. It was his unlucky night.

                            In the past with other deliveries it has been a mix of both. Some on Twitter are adamant that they must go to Biggin Hill before delivery, I'm not sure what the logic of this is, if this is the case.

                              • Do they really need to go to switzerland to remove the old reg and stick on a few decals?
