A New Type in Our Skies - a Folland Gnat!

On Wednesday 21 April Red Arrows Ltd of Auckland registered a Folland Gnat in New Zealand.  It is a rare occurrence for a new ex-military type to be registered here and it will be great to see it in our skies!

Folland Gnat T1 ZK-RAJ (c/n FL 594) is ex N7CV and is painted in the colours of the Red Arrows, and I would be pretty sure the RAJ stands for Red Arrows Jet.  It is photo'd above being unloaded at Tauranga in February 2021.

  1. Owner Matt Wilcock confirmed to me on Facebook that's exactly what it stands for...and that he saw my post about the rego before CAA told him it had been finalised! I think she may still be on display at Classic Flyers Museum pending reassembly.
