Sole Surviving Avro Tutor

by 1stEverPentax

The aircraft dates from the 1930s and is one from the main production batch.
Was used by the RAF College Cranwell and Central Flying School before being 'demobbed' in Dec 1946. A year later it joined the civil register as G-AHSA.

The aircraft suffered a major engine failure during filming of 'Reach For The Sky' and was grounded for a few years while the engine was completely rebuilt
as parts were hard to source.

This aircraft is currently painted in the colours of the Central Flying School Aerobatic Team as K3241 and is believed to be the sole survivor of its type.

Perfect portrait and I like the information you provide with these.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Cheers David...I do like vintage aircraft...far more character than bland modern designs.

The 'info' hopefully adds something extra although to be honest I just 'lift' it from various sources...mainly from the boards next to each aircarft in the hangars.
