Ex-RAF Auster AOP.IV MT133. Service with 658, 662, and 661 Squadrons. Struck off charge when sold 3/3/54. Civil registered 2/12/1953 as G-ANHL.

Written off (damaged beyond repair) when crashed on 12/12/1961 at Dinard, France. Despite this, CAA records show G-ANHL as being sold on to a new owner on 20/8/1963, either for spares or intended rebuild. Registration eventually (and belatedly) cancelled by the CAA on 6/1/1970 as "PWFU" ("Permanently Withdrawn From Use")
