These bizarre "RAF Air Support Command" marks were applied for a film while 'ZH was in a derelict state at STN. Quite who would have been fooled by the huge roundel on the tail is hard to see; note the serial 'XV196' borrowed from a Herk (which incidentally is still active). Formerly Flying Tigers' N452T, she was bought by TMAC 29.1.72 and known by them as 'Hangar Queen' - a name that should have been heeded as after returning to service she crashed in the sea just after t/o from Kai Tak on 2.9.77
