Photo Comment

Light amphibian aircraft completed in early 1970. Damaged beyond repair on 13 January 1973. G-AXZN's primary claim to fame is that it flew Edward Woodward, the principal character, out to the pagan Hebridean island of "Summerisle" in the 1973 film 'The Wicker Man'. The flying sequences in the film involving the Thurston Teal were filmed with owner Christopher Murphy at the controls.
