There’s a few flying around in British Forces parachute training contracts and appearing on the display scene a few times.

Was there an airshow nearby ? I saw a Skyvan accompanying the Wessex that displayed at this year's Yeovilton Air Day after the show. Looked to be a silvery or light grey colour.

Had a Skyvan over my place in Dorset over a couple of days before Yeovilton Air Day. Formatted with  C17, Hercules and others. Apparently it operates as a camera ship.
