Photographer's Remark

Only two complete examples of the 25 Short Sealand amphibians built remain, the other in India (although there is a third dismantled in Northern Ireland). Designed in the late 1940s, it was not a success and suffered from being underpowered. This example was one of two supplied to Yugoslavia and was originally G-AKLS then YU-CFK for delivery, serving the Yugoslav AF till 1962
