Photographer's Remark

Formerly Air Atlantique's G-AMSV. Became N347DK in Feb 2008, and initially stored at Coventry, as seen here. Flown to Dublin-Weston in Nov 2009, but in Jun 2011 it returned to the UK, to Kemble, where a restoration was started for the Indian Air Force Vintage Flight. Reverted to G-AMSV in Sep 2014, and flown back to Coventry in May 2015. Painted in Indian Air Force markings, initially as KN397, its original serial. But in 2018 it was allocated official Indian Air Force serial VP905 (previously carried by C-47A c/n 12581) and named Parashurama. On 17 Apr 2018 it departed Coventry as such, on delivery to India.
