Peter Channon's Comper Swift back at Redhill shortly after having to abandon his attempt to re-create Arthur Butler's 1931 England-Australia 9-day flight in G-ABRE. G-ABTC left Biggin Hill on 28 December 1981 but had to make a forced landing in Jask, Iran in March 1982 due to a faulty distributor rotor arm. Channon was refused permission to proceed to Pakistan and instead flew back to Dubai from where the Swift was air-freighted to Gatwick and then flown the short hop to Redhill. Understood to be under restoration by Peter Channon near Perranporth, Cornwall in 2017.

Either Mr Pull or Mr Push is 'Pobjoy Pete', I am told, and he still has G-ABTC stored in the deep South-West of the UK

This classic aircraft, built in 1932 has been cancelled from the UK register with a certificate of airworthiness expiring as long ago as 1984. I wonder what has become of it ?
