47 Squadron Beverley C.1 based at RAF Abingdon displayed at Burtonwood's 1956 Armed Forces Day. It wears the initial all metallic scheme with '47' in the red diamond on its fin. Delivered in early 1956. Crashed near El Adem Libya 13 April 1963.
Ordered as a multi-engine pilot trainer to replace the Varsity, the relationship between the Jetstream and the RAF was rather troubled. This airframe was built in 1970 but didn't enter service until Mar. 77. Shortly after her replacement by the Beech 200 in March '04 she undertook her final flight to Cosford and into retirement.
