WK163 to fly this year?

CAF at Newquay are fitting their recently sourced replacement Avon into Canberra WK163.

Fingers crossed for a quick PTF and Display Authorisation .

Last news on the CAF FB page was a late summer transit from Coventry to Newquay, but my St Mawgan spy tells me that their aircraft movements board now indicates a winter 2013 arrival there.

However, the CAF's T4 should be there shortly - just a shame it's by road...
