One of two such aircrafts still in decent shape at the Aircraft Preservation and Storage Unit of the SLAF. These are also very rare as there appears to be only these two left in one piece in the whole world.One of 12 such aircraft purchased by Ceylon (Sri Lanka) in 1951 as an intermediate trainer. These aircraft were known for being over powered hence susceptable to "torque stall" but the RCyAF /SLAF pilots loved them for aerobatics.

Great to see they've spruced it up and moved it indoors! It was outdoors in the blistering sun when I was there in August last year - this hangar was still being prepared for aircraft at the time. -Angad S
