G-ACVD crashed on approach to Croydon on February 26, 1938 as it was being prepared for delivery to Australia for aerial survey work. As a consequence it never officially became VH-UZX. Over two years were to pass before its UK registration was finally cancelled. Photo from: National Library of Australia

This Heron is the former G-ANUO, which was last operated by Topflight and Avtech in the 1980s and 1990s. Its registration was cancelled from the register on 8 Aug 1996, and a few months later, in Nov 1996, it was placed on display as seen here, in front of the former Croydon Airport's terminal building. It is falsely painted as G-AOXL of Morton Air Services, the last aircraft to make a passenger flight from Croydon Airport on 30 Oct 1959. By mid 2019 the aircraft was still on display here in much the same condition.
