Photo Comment

I did my PPL training in this lovely aeroplane back in the early '90s. It was an absolute delight to fly, with 180hp, inverted fuel system, a constant-speed prop and spade ailerons. In fact, some of my wedding photos are taken beside this aircraft! Built in 1979 and registered, probably new, on 28 March 1980. It's obviously awaiting a new engine at the moment.
