Not sure, but on friday there was a giant "58" on the side of ZA001, saw it on the way to a little afternoon time at BFI. At the time I wondered what it meant.

Maybe 57 days to first delivery or obtaining a usage certificate....

Every plane being on display at the show is given a shownumber. Maybe these numbers are the shownumbers allocated by the organisation of the Paris Air Salon?

Cheers!

I think they're registration numbers specific to the Paris Air Show. It's been that way at every one I can remember.

Aircraft going to the Paris show have had the numbers for as long as I can remember.

Even the Space Shuttle & Buran carriers got them...
