This Criquet (Locust) saw service with l'Armee de l' Air in French Indo-China before transferring to the civilian register, including with a Belgian owner who restored the aircraft into its current colours. It's last flight was into East Fortune in 1982 where it is now on display at the National Museum of Flight..
