Photo Comment

G-EBKU was the second prototype Moth. Flown to what was then British India by Bernard Leete who then undertook a series of demonstrations and joy flights. Hit wires on landing at Lahore injuring himself and his passenger. G-EBKU written off. This is believed to have occurred at the RAF base as Lahore's first civil airport was still three years in the future. The base, which was taken over by the Pakistan air force, became the main civil airport in 1960.
