Photo Comment

G-APRJ on display at the Grand Opening Day of the Historic Aircraft Museum repainted from RF342 and wearing its old Class B test registration of G-29-1. When the museum closed and its contents were auctioned in May 1983 it sold for £8,500. The majority of the aeroplane ended up with the Australian National Aviation Museum while the nose (a Lancaster nose from the pilot's windscreen forward, ex-TW911) went to Flying Heritage, Seattle.
