Just to add to the San Javier postings, the 10 Casa 101s between the hangers were noted on a very swift walkabout. Just concentrating on bagging the important serials at the time without noting the codes. E25-19 E25-12 E25-25 E25-86 E25-28 E25-16 E25-15 E25 -09 E25-54 E25-62 . Also a number of
of Casa 101s noted between the gaps in a closed maintenance hanger but only one serial noted E25 -79 before my luck ran out. Guardia Civile Bo105 code 09-124 was flying in the local area during the morning. Preserved on base noted Casa 1131, HA200A , T6G , T34A ,Casa101 as EMOOS 2018, no sign however of the preserved T33 or Casa212 . In the town on a roundabout E25-10 79-10 Casa101 , U9-49 Casa 127 noted at the local museum.
Best Regards Bobs...

you were obviously concentrating on the off-limits areas rather than logging the 42 AV-8s and about a dozen EF-18s on the flightline that got a friend of ours all excited !!! :oops:

A few corrections / additions to the above. All serials read except where in brackets.

01-914 AV8 wore serial VA.1B-24
"0" MB339 wore serial MM54534
78-03 S76 was HE.24-3
ET-717 Tigre was HA.28-17
72-07 C212 was T.12B-49
46-82 C27 was MM62218

Flight Line:
01-920 VA.1B-30 was AV8
01-922 (VA.1B-33) was TAV8
12-14 F18 was C.15-56
M346s were MM55154 61-01, MM55223 61-22
T35 (towed from hangar and flew around 13.00) was 79-74 / E.26-27
EC120s HE.25-2 was 78-21, HE.25-3 was 78-22
ET-714 Tigre (should be HA.28-14)
C101 "1" was E.25-52 / 79-34. I did not note E.25-84 '5' anywhere - but did see E.25-87 / 79-29 with special markings. Was E.25-84 definitely there?
Frecce Tricolori codes were 1,2,3,5,6,7,8,10,11 (0 was in static)

79-72 was E.26-25
79-53 - I noted 79-55 / E.26-08
79-75 should be E.26-28 - probably misread as "E.26-58 or 9" which do not exist
79-44 does not exist - probably misread of 79-64 E.26-17
79-46 was the C101, not a T-35
79-74 - E.26-27 was towed out later (see above)
79-58 was E.26-11
79-56 (E.26-09) was also there

On way in:
As well as the 5 preserved aircraft the front fuselage of RF-4C 12-61 (CR.12-52) was on display

Civil Terminal:
"?G222" appeared to be an RSV C27 - serial anyone?

As well as a selection from the above (I can provide details if requested), noted were:
72-01 (T.12B-13) C212 dropping parachutists about 10.15
79-85 (E.26-38) T-35 part of 75 anniversary flyby about 13.45
35-43 (T.21-05) C295 departed about 16.00

Any comments / questions / additions most welcome!

Some initial ramblings from the Costa Cálida:
Those 10 CASA 101s: as stated one in normal colours, 79-35/E25-54,
one in Anniv cols, 79-28/ E25-28 but it's for 30 years of the Patruilla, 1985-2015.
and 8 Aguilas but not all with "codes", 79-32/8/E25-86, 79-16/no code/E25-16, 79-15/2/E25-15, 79-08/no code/E25-09, 79-17/2/E25-62, 79-12/4/E25-12, 79-25/(5 not 100% conf it was this one, s/be back right a/c)/E25-25 & 79-19/no code/E25-19
The 11 CASA 101s on the flight line were in two rows but looking from the tower :wink: L to R approximately:
79-33/E25-50, 74-26/E25-72, 79-02/7/E25-78, (79-34)/1/E25-52, 79-21/1/E25.21, 79-38/2/E25-38, (74-17 - failed to spot healthy girl doing aerobics in front of serial [photo-proof])/3/E25-63, 79-29/SP/E25-87, 79-31/3/E25-31, 79-xx/5/(E25-xx) - "5" deffo there but my pix (as usual) inconclusive, parked behind ..... 79-27/8/E25-27.
The Frecce were surprisingly tricky (and Shamu, I'm afraid your 11 is incorrect [photo proof])
0/54534 (static), 1/no idea, 2/54551, 3/5505X, 4/55053 - alone in flightline hangar (the furthest one), 5/5505X (where X = 5 or 9), 6/54538, 7/55054, 8/54514, 9 - oh, there was no 9, 10/54505 & 11/55052.

Thanks to Mr ChrisThorpe I've just deleted 1/2 an hours typing so can I be the 94th person to point out the Pilans were actually in a hangar and not at the dry cleaners :roll: In that shed (!) was indeed 79-53/E26-06 behind 79-72 and pointing the other way. I too have 7 Pilans in there plus the CASA and two Do's. Eurodemobbed have a 2nd Do-27 "stored" U9-23/79-114 but we didn't get that far in.
Still working on the main Pilan hangar …. tired now! Oh yes and the RSV C-27 at the Ryanair Terminal was CSX62219.

Bobs, the Casa 212 & the Tee Bird were acquired by turning left thru a car park as you walked out and tacking NW past the lemon trees / buildings, about 100 metres. Actually perpendicular to the the other preserved stuff.

well the shed looked like a dry cleaner's to me :-)

The C101 coded 5 on the flightline was definitely E.25-13 / 79-13.
I presume E.25-09 amongst the 10 between the hangars was 79-09?

Thanks for the rest! Would appreciate a definitive list of the T-35s in the various hangars.....

And by the power of Canon Fudger Professional I am tending to agree with you on 79-13/5!

The Main Pilan hangar:

Reports suggest up to 17 a/c in there; my pix show a lot of stanchions and aeroplane bits with no numbers on, but ditching the Canon revealed:

79-51/E26-04, 79-52/E26-05, 79-60/E26-13, 79-61/E26-14, 79-63/E26-16, 79-65/E26-18, 79-66/E26-19, 79-67/E26-20, 79-70/E26-23, 79-80/E26-33 & 79-82/E26-35
