Photo Comment

Twenty-four Pucaras were dispatched to the Falklands during the conflict in 1982, of which five survived in reasonable condition. This example was selected for performance evaluation trials and shipped back to the UK for testing by the A&AEE (for which she was allocated the serial ZD485). In 1983 she was transferred to the RAF Museum at Cosford where she is now on display in the 'War Planes' hangar.
