Photo Comment

Assigned RAF serial WW591 but this was not used. It made its first flight 04-Oct-1955 as Danish Air Force 47-401 and was delivered in Jan-1956. In 1960 the serial was changed to E-401. It was withdrawn from use in Mar-1974 and was stored at Aalborg (noted 1975-1981), Gronholt (noted 1986) and Skrydstrup (by 1987). In May-1988 it went to the Danmarks Flyvemuseum at Billund. After this closed in 1997 it moved to the Danmarks Tekniske Museum in Helsingor. In 2008 it arrived at the Danmarks Flymuseum at Stauning, painted as 47-401 again.
