    Hi Chris
    I think you will need a time period to get this answered. The HU-Z was only unique to the a/c whilst it was part of the Sqn, once it left, the code was removed and re-allocated to the next a/c brought into the Sqn. The code could have appeared on several a/c in turn whilst the serial stayed with an a/c for it's whole existence and was not re-allocated if the a/c was destroyed,scrapped, sent to a Foreign Air Force etc

    Default Hu-z

    I did a quick check in the ORB's for 406 Sq. Unfortunately they only use aircraft serial numbers. This makes it near impossible to put a letter to a serial number. A pilots log book than may have flown Z is your best option.
