History

Built in 1944 by Brush Coachworks Ltd, this aircraft initially served with the RAF as NR747.[1] In the late 1960's, it was used by the Army Parachute Association at RAF Netheravon.[2]

At the time of it's appearance in Piece of Cake, G-AJHO was owned by Colin Dodds.[3]

On 5 February 1989, while being flown solo by Charles Shea-Simmons for Proteus Petroleum Aviation Ltd, the aircraft was written off when, following engine failure and structural damage to one wing, it flipped onto it's back during an emergency landing, with the pilot managing to escape before the aircraft was destroyed by fire. Registration G-AJHO was cancelled by the CAA as aircraft "destroyed" on 31 March 1989.[4]
