    Hi Amrit,

    Sorry for the time taken to reply, but things out of my control. Thanks for the reply to my thread very interesting. I checked a few sites but couldn't find where they were based at the time of the loss of both aircraft. All the best.

    Regards.

    Steve.

    Hello Steve,

    FK127 was coded "K" and FK131 was coded "E".
