    Alex,
    Very minor point, Mohawk AR666 was a IV according to the relevant Air-Britain serials book:
    AR630/AR634 Mohawk III
    AR635/AR694 Mohawk IV

    Thanks Andy,
    Mohair IV is correct, definitely was not a Mohair III :)
    I just cannot seem to print out what I actually type, the tablet seems to change words at will.
    All the best
    Alex
    Oops see what I mean, it did it again ....

    Mohawk IV not Mohair III.

    Maybe this time
