This B-25C Mitchell served with 320 (Dutch) Squadron of the RAF during WW2 as FR173 and was originally 42-64689. After service with the RNAF postwar it was transferred to the Navy. It had accompanied 8 Fireflies to Ringway for overhaul by Fairey Aviation and ferried their crews back to Holland. 2-1 is also visible and a Belgian AF Mosquito NF.30.
