Hi Charly -

United Kingdom for June - woud that include the Manx ragister, M-? Technically part of the UK!

Then for July my suggestion is Austria, which I'd have voted for if it was an option this month.

Then for August... :D

Thanks for the things you do for FS.

Luckily the UK is already covered well for online registry information.

For the UK there's the G-INFO site that you might already know about, https://siteapps.caa.co.uk/g-info/ although the types are not always recorded in exactly the same way, sometimes a search might not find all examples.

For example since you have done some Pilatus PC-12 paints, this is the list pulled up by G-INFO for the mainland UK.

1    G-ERGP    1564    PILATUS PC-12/47E
2    G-FITC    1926    PILATUS PC-12/47E
3    G-FLXI    1275    PILATUS PC-12/47E
4    G-GEFF    1359    PILATUS PC-12/47E
5    G-KARE    1257    PILATUS PC-12/47E
6    G-KFTI    1813    PILATUS PC-12/47E
7    G-LBHA    1904    PILATUS PC-12/47E
8    G-LUSO    1880    PILATUS PC-12/47E
9    G-MAKN    1744    PILATUS PC-12/47E
10    G-NBCA    1717    PILATUS PC-12/47E
11    G-OMSL    1842    PILATUS PC-12/47E
12    G-PCIZ    1639    PILATUS PC-12/47E
13    G-PCTW    1674    PILATUS PC-12/47E
14    G-PKHA    1776    PILATUS PC-12/47E
15    G-TRAT      710    PILATUS PC-12/47

This is the whole Guernsey register for May, but it is about to be updated - it looks as though it is done monthly.

https://www.2-reg.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/register-20200501-2.pdf

2-DARE
2-FLYT
2-FLYY
2-LIVE

And there are 34 PC-12s on the Manx register, searchable here https://www.iomaircraftregistry.com/about-us/registered-aircraft/

I'm not suggesting PC-12s as such, but you've made a lot of PC-12 paints recently and I was just curious as to how many come up in a search, 53, unless any new 2- reg planes were registsred in the past month. That's probably too much for a month especially if you want variety, but at least the search locations are here if you need them!

Thanks for the list. I'm trying to get as many PC-12s done this weekend. Have just updated the paint kit to include the new NGX windows as well and I'm looking forward to get some of those painted too.
