  1. Hi Marcel, great site. As for G-BMRJ, she must have changed names between Loch Tummel and Old Wardour Castle frequently. There are Pictures showing her in BA colours with Loch Tummel after 1990. I flew her in January 1998 and I am almost 100% sure she was with Loch Tummel Name at that time, too.
