Remark Photographer
G-AOTF (cn C1/0015) Over 30 years later than the only other image in the database. The strange cockpit was almost certainly applied for the purpose of glider towing. Ex RAF WB563 and operated by the RAF Gliding and Soaring Association. Seen here at Bagby's May Fly-In.

The cockpit was designed like that, becasue it was a modified chippie used for crop spraying. The front cockpit was covered and used for the hopper. It was an experimental aircraft. The RAFGSA then fitted a 180hp lycoming for glider towing. its nickname, for obvious reasons is 'bumblemunk'
