David - do you have any modern shots of this prehistoric aeroplane? This is a scan of a 35mm shot from 1954, of some nostalgic value to me, as I first learned to fly on these in the regular air force - having graduated from Chipmunks in a University Air Squadron.

Sorry George I don`t have any modern ones of those, only the ones from Eastbourne.

Thanks for the link, David - plenty of pictures there.
I'd still like a "home made" shot if you ever get one - it somehow makes it more personal! I don't suppose there are many of them left flying, but air shows do come up with some very obscure aeroplanes!
Did you notice the callsign of the one at the back? It was the cause of much juvenile amusement at the time, as foxtrot oscar was a well used euphemism!
