It's more difficult to secure exclusive access to the aircraft at Duxford I think. It's certainly an interesting mod that they've done!

Because it is an advertisement produced by an advertising agency and their associated film production company and not knowledgeable aircraft people. Bear in mind this is on screen for about 5 seconds. 99.99% of the population wouldn't notice the anomalies.

ZA150 was very serviceable today! The chaps at Dunsfold are doing a fine job with her.

She sounds great!!!!
