Ex I-AEHE, MM52799. At the time carrying no identifying marks, although my log book states that it was coded 'FHE'. It was for a long time thought to have been G46-4B c/n 106 ex MM53211, but was fairly recently discovered to be a G46-1B, ex MM52799. In 2013 it was under rebuild to fly at Shipdham, Norfolk, and has more recently moved to the Classic Flying Machine Collection at Norwich Airport.

There is some debate about this Storch's true identity, but it is thought to be c/n 110064. It was sold for £24000 at the Philip's auction on 10 May 1983, then went to the USA where it became N2405P. This registration was cancelled on 11 February 2011. It was apparently delivered new to the Royal Swedish Air Force as Fv.3812. Other IDs suggested are D-EYWB (prior to delivery to Sweden) and N464FB. (It was reported in Wrecks & Relics 10 to have gone to the USA as N156FS after the closure of the Whitehall Theatre of War, but this has the c/n 4642.)

There is some debate about this Storch's true identity, but it is thought to be c/n 110064. It was sold for £24000 at the Philip's auction on 10 May 1983, then went to the USA where it became N2405P. This registration was cancelled on 11 February 2011. It was apparently delivered new to the Royal Swedish Air Force as Fv.3812. Other IDs suggested are D-EYWB (prior to delivery to Sweden) and N464FB. (It was reported in Wrecks & Relics 10 to have gone to the USA as N156FS after the closure of the Whitehall Theatre of War, but this has the c/n 4642.)
