Sorry, I don't get what you mean? What is the significance of this?

When the airframes were sold to the RAF, they were removed from the civil register as 'transferred to unqualified owner'. This makes sense as the RAF is not an organisation that complies with civil regulations, but they don't have to as they have their own, military regulations.

It's a play on words! "Unqualified owner"
1. Not officially recognised (as Jelle said above) in relation to civil aviation regulations.
2. Not competent or sufficiently knowledgeable to do something.
Choose between the two!! :D

I guessed that's what it meant but thought there was something more sinister you were pointing out that I was missing!

If you look at the register entries for G-ASIX or 5N-ABD for example you will see that their transfer to a foreign register is also listed under this same heading. It's a way of saying 'the aircraft is no longer under our control' I guess.
