Built by de Havilland in Britain and delivered new to the Royal Air Force in Apr-1951. Served initially with No. 102 Flying Refresher School and later 98, 266, 5, 93, and 266 Squadrons, as WA375. Transferred to the New Zealand Air Force (as NZ5776) in Aug-1956. Took part in Operation Silver Bullet - the Vampire's farewell tour of NZ in 1972. Now under restoration at the Museum of Flight Restoration Centre. The molded plywood fuselage looks to be in magnificent condition.
