Photo Comment

Participated in the flying display along with G-ASMM & G-APNZ. Winner of the Kings Cup Air Race at Rochester in July 1969. Damaged beyond repair on 23rd June 1991 when it crashed on approach to Headcorn Airfield after losing VFR orientation due to deteriorating weather conditions. G-ARZM was the lead aircraft of three Turbulents from The Tiger Club, along with G-APNZ and G-ASAM, that were returning to Headcorn after giving a formation flying display at RAF Henlow, Bedfordshire. All three crashed: G-ARZM and G-ASAM were written off, G-APNZ was substantially damaged.
