Photo Comment

Ex XF756, G-AMPP, KK136, 43-49456. Dan-Air used it as their 'gate guardian' painted as G-AMSU, their very first aircraft. It was sold to Aces High in November 1991 who sold it on to Eurodisney in France, where it was put on display until 2002 when it went to a museum in the Netherlands. In 2005 it was used in a film about the Berlin Airlift ("Die Luftbrucke") painted as KN491, in which the airframe was set ablaze. Reported as subsequently being with the Wings of Liberation Museum at Best, Netherlands, for restoration in USAAF markings.
