Two classic transports for the price of one. The Beverley first flew 15.7.57 and became 7988M as an instructional frame after its 84 Sqdn service; b/u 3.77 although the cockpit section survives at Doncaster. Argosy XN819 started with A&AEE in 11.61, to 105 then 114/267 Sqdns; 8205M as ground trainer at Finningley but burnt out on fire dump by 9.86
