    Hello Col,
    Thanks for the updates and corrections.
    I have been adding BOAC's aircraft as was not sure if there was some connection with Coastal Command, especially concerning the seaplanes.

    Hello,

    Apologies about 304 FTU, it was part of Coastal Command. Likewise 302 FTU, 303 FTU and 306 FTU
